To date, the organization has hosted similar events at Rudi's in Portsmouth and The Way We Cook in Manchester. Both were sold-out. All funds raised, as well as a portion of all tickets sold, will support the many critical programs and services that have helped people of central New Hampshire live full and independent lives despite their vision loss.
