A Night In Their Shoes, Feb. 8

Join us for a dinner of new experiences! To shed light on a variety of health concerns around a community, a different experience will be simulated during each course of the meal. During appetizers, the struggles associated with mental health will be highlighted. The main course will be a silent dinner, where participants will use ear plugs and American Sign Language worksheets to communicate with each other. During desserts, guests will be blindfolded in order to raise awareness to the visually impaired.

WHEN: Wednesday, Feb. 8 from  6:30-9 p.m.

WHERE: Cook Alumni Hall

TICKETS: $5 before the event/$8 at the door
