Not heading South for the CSUN conference? Head north instead.

Wait…what? There’s another event happening in March besides the CSUN Conference on Disability? Well, yes, and I’m not just referring to my birthday. Which,, by the way, is on the 22nd, so you had better get started on those gifts. Ahem.

there are actually a few events upcoming that might interest you, and all of them are happening in California. The California Council of the Blind is holding their state convention in Sacramento this year, and there are a couple of must-attend events associated with the conference you’ll want to know about. I’ll post more info over the next few weeks, but here are the details about one of them:

When: Thursday, March 22nd, 2018
Event: Dining in the Dark will bring together community leaders, industry professionals and caring citizens for an evening of fine dining to raise awareness and resources for the California Council of the Blind. Guests will be invited to enjoy their meals wearing eye shades in low light conditions and utilize their other senses to maximize this unique culinary experience. The event will feature Christine Ha, Blind Chef, and winner of Master Chef season three. There will also be an exclusive auction, local Celebrity Emcees, and dance music provided by blind DJ’s from J & J FM.

Tickets are available for $75 each and will sell out fast! Please go to or call 916-441-2100 to purchase your tickets today.

In addition to the Dining in the Dark event, there will also be a Tactile and Sensory Art show, as well as the CCB conference sessions and exhibit hall, which you will find at the Marriott Rancho Cordova in Sacramento, California. Check back here for updates, as I’ll provide a schedule of events as well as press releases and links to more information.

You will find me at the Dinner in the Dark, as I am a table sponsor, and I’ll also be showing my Elegant Insights Braille Creations jewelry and accessories in the exhibit hall as well as in the art gallery for the art show. There’s plenty to experience in Sacramento this year, so after you’ve had your fill of the CSUN conference, just head straight North to the California Council of the Blind State convention over the weekend. See you there!
