Dining in dark helps others ‘see’

Imagine losing your eyesight and you have to adjust to doing simple things, like eating in darkness. Last Monday night at David’s Catfish Restaurant, a group of giving citizens did just that. It was a fundraiser for the Covington VIP Lions Club called Dining in the Dark. Lights were turned off and the shades came down while the David’s staff prepared and served a feast.

Restaurant owner Bill Spurlin donated his facility and all of the food. Money raised at the event will go toward training visually-impaired adults how to cope with vision loss at the Extreme Experience Retreat. It’s great to see the community come out and support a worthy cause. And way to go, Bill!
