Whether it's attending a gala featuring comedians such as Jay Leno or Howie Mandel or running in the most extraordinary road race of your life, National Braille Press has an event for you! Here are some of the ways you can have fun while making a difference!
Recognizing 90 years of producing braille
and funding literacy programs for blind kids.
Plan on attending NBP's 2017 Gala at the Marriott Copley in Boston.
Listen to the entire 2016 Million Laughs for Literacy Gala and view pictures from the event!
On April 27th, guests at our 90 Years, 9 Plates event enjoyed a unique blindfolded dining experience. They filled the room with oohs, aahs, and gasps of surprise as braille reader Tanja led them through nine mystery courses. As they tasted each dish, attendees shouted out reactions and guessed at what they were tasting.
It was a true pleasure to slow down and savor every aspect of the dining experience with senses other than sight. We thank Hampshire House for the specially designed menu and the wonderful food plates created and prepared by Chef Marcus. April 27th was truly an evening of food and fun for a great cause — braille literacy!
