WCB’s First Annual Picnic at the Community Universalist Congregation

WCB’s First Annual Picnic at the Community Universalist Congregation (www.cuucwp.org ) in White Plains

Great company, great weather, great food, fun games, and no ants! It was a perfect picnic in every way.  Friends and family joined members of Westchester Council of the Blind to celebrate being together. We want to thank CUUC for providing the outdoor area.    The pot luck  offered the best  munchies and summer pickings, including fried chicken, a  yummy Italian sub, home-made potato salad and plenty of desserts. Games like Twenty Questions and Name That Tune were enjoyed by all, whether sighted or not.  Click here to View the pictures of our group taking in the great day with guide dogs and guests.

Dining in The Dark Fundraiser

DINING IN THE DARK IS BACK – Saturday, OCTOBER 20TH from 1 – 4 p.m.

Slip on a sleep mask for an unusual and educating sensory experience.

The plated goodness is in front of you — with knife and fork in hand you face the challenge of identifying and placing every last delicious morsel into your mouth. 

Yes, it’s time for DINING IN THE DARK 2018.  Once again, the White Plains Lions Club and Westchester Council of the Blind have partnered to host one of Westchester’s topmost fundraising events. Join us for an afternoon of great food and a rewarding experience.

We are excited to be hosting the afternoon at Rini’s Restaurant and Wine Bar, located at 12 West Main Street, Elmsford from 1 to 4 p.m. Tickets are $65 per person.  Please contact Annie Chiappetta, White Plains Lions Club President at anniecms64@gmail.com or call 914-393-6605 to learn about Table discounts, sponsorship levels and auction donation information

Don’t worry, the room is not pitch-black and there will be blind or visually impaired people to be your culinary experience guides.   The multi-sensory adventure supports the White Plains Lions Club’s charity fund and the Westchester Council of the Blind’s 50+ Technology Grant.

Stay tuned to this page for updates or email president@wcbny.org to volunteer your time or provide a donation or auction item.

Dining In The Dark fundraiser 2017

Highlights from the Dining In The Dark fundraiser 2017 hosted by the White Plains Lions Club and benefitting the Westchester Council of the Blind.  All proceeds helped support the WCB 50 Plus Technology Grant and the WPLC Charity fund. Guests wore sleep masks to simulate blindness and ate a meal, then reflected upon their experience. A ticket raffle was also a success. The Lions Club was  presented with a proclamation by Senate Minority Leader, Andrea Stewart-cousins, who declared June 10 as the White Plains Lions Dining in the dark Day and congratulated WPLC on their club charter.
