RUSSELL — On Saturday, October 20, DeafBlind Ontario Services hosted their second annual Art in the Dark fundraising event at Russell High School.

At this unforgettable evening, guests were inspired by this one-of-a-kind art experience. Attendees learned more about the artistic process while undergoing a simulation exercise wearing earplugs and an eye mask. Through their sense of touch, they created a work of art using wooden canvases and a rainbow of wood chips, providing them with a better understanding of deafblindness.

To enhance this unique sensory experience, guests also enjoyed a delicious dinner, fabulous live and silent auctions, and a trip raffle where one lucky guest won a round trip flight for two to anywhere WestJet flies!
