Join us at Warehouse Winery on March 20 for a transformative sensory experience, and a delicious networking lunch with industry peers!

This signature program, presented by Mark Valenziano, is a sensory awareness experiment that will be educational, fun, and memorable. In addition to giving a compelling glimpse into what it’s like to navigate daily tasks while visually impaired, this Dine in the Dark Luncheon will get you out of your comfort zone as you attempt some hands-on tasks while enjoying lunch and conversations – all while blindfolded.

What to expect: Attendees will be blindfolded upon arrival at the event and guided to their seats where they will enjoy a catered lunch and presentation. Attendees will be instructed through the meal and will be able to remove their blindfolds for discussion and post-lunch networking.

About the Speaker:

Mark Valenziano was fifteen when he was told he was going blind. His journey from sighted to blind filled his life with change and challenge. Mark had to develop and utilize tools so he could build the happy life he enjoys today.  

In 2016, Mark was contacted by Young Presidents Organization (YPO) and asked to create a sensory-awareness experience around losing one’s sight. His creation, Dining in the Dark, received extremely high ratings and went on to win a YPO Best Personal Development Award.
