In other news, dozens of people attended a special dinner in Berks County that benefitted the visually impaired. The Berkshire Country Club, in Berks Township, hosted the “Dine in the Dark” event on Thursday night. Diners were blindfolded so they experienced what it was like to maneuver a meal without their vision. Proceeds from the event went to the Vision Resource Center of Berks County and the Kutztown University Visual Impairment Program. “It’s just a small snippet of what someone with vision loss goes through,” Lori Schermerhorn, president and CEO of the Vision Resource Center of Berks County, told WFMZ-TV.
