Dine In the Dark With A Guide Dog Puppy At Hilton Maidstone

October 22, 2013

MAIDSTONE, U.K. - Guide Dogs are holding a fundraising Halloween dinner with a difference on 31 October 2013 at Hilton Maidstone. Guests will have the opportunity to eat under blindfold, if they choose, and experience some of the challenges faced on a daily basis by people who are blind or partially sighted.

Diners will be able to take part in the trick or treat tombola and tantalise their taste buds with this unique, spooky feast. There will be an auction featuring prizes such as a visit to the Guide Dog Breeding Centre, or a family visit to the world of Harry Potter. The musical entertainment will be provided by guide dog owners Angela Purll and Hayley Oliver. Best of all, guests will be able to meet some of the puppies in training - the real stars of the evening. The three course Halloween feast costs £35 per person, which includes a drink on arrival. Dress is fancy dress or formal and the doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased individually or in tables by phoning 0845 372 7422.

All proceeds raised will go to supporting the work of the Guide Dogs and more information on making donations in other ways or volunteering can be found at www.guidedogs.org.uk. You can also purchase tickets for the dinner from Hilton Maidstone and take advantage of special accommodation rates for an overnight stay; they can be contacted at 01622 734 322.
