Experience an exclusive sensory dining experience by suppressing our most dominant sense – sight! South Australia’s oldest charitable service provider, Can:Do 4Kids, is hosting their fifth annual Dinner in the Dark event.

Held at the National Wine Centre on June 15, Can:Do 4Kids hope to beat the successful amount of $100,000 raised last year.

Hosted by global success story Andre Eikmeier, Joint CEO and Co-Founder of the Vinomofo empire, Dinner in the Dark is Can:Do 4Kids’ signature fundraising event and is the first of its kind in South Australia. The event gives guests a unique sensory dining experience by suppressing their most dominant sense – sight!

“Guests are blindfolded during the four-course food and wine degustation dinner, allowing their other senses – taste and smell – to take over,” says Andre.

“Diners are taken on a sensory journey like no other – allowing guests to have an appreciation for what life would be like without sight.”


This one-off experience not only takes you on a sensory trip but proceeds go to Can:Do 4 Kids, Townsend House. They offer vital therapy and support for children who are blind, vision impaired, deaf or hearing impaired.

The National Wine Centre’s head chef has exclusively created a four-course menu combining exciting textures and flavours to ignite the senses, setting the scene for an extravagant culinary experience. Like other years, the event will allow guests to truly appreciate their senses while enjoying delicious wine and food pairing.

Each table is hosted by a local winemaker who will expertly match the wine to each course and guide guests through the unique, blind-folded dining journey.

Established in 1874 by William Townsend as a school and accommodation for deaf and blind children, Townsend House has provided family-centered support for over 140 years.

Keep Friday June 15 free for this unique sensory dining experience. Tickets are available from www.cando4kids.com.au
