NORFOLK, Va. – The Hampton Roads Chapter of the Foundation Fighting Blindness presents a spooktacular afternoon of taste without sight.

Participants may choose to wear simulation masks and experience firsthand vision loss while attempting to drink beer and eat food.

The tasting includes five tapas from Sofrito food truck and five 5 oz. craft and seasonal beers.

100% of the proceeds will go to the Foundation Fighting Blindness, whose mission is to drive research aimed at preventing, treating and curing blinding retinal diseases. Over 10 million Americans are affected by blinding retinal diseases.
