Bosma announces title sponsor for Dining in the Dark

Today, Bosma Visionary Opportunities Foundation announced Ansell will be the 2024 title sponsor for Bosma’s annual fundraising gala, Dining in the Dark.

Dining in the Dark raises critical funds to help Hoosiers regain their independence and hope after vision loss. To raise awareness of the need for Bosma’s vision rehabilitation programs, guests at the event are encouraged to wear sleep shades and experience their meal in the dark. Table ambassadors guide attendees through the meal and share the story of Bosma and navigating life with vision loss.

“We are excited to have Ansell as our title sponsor for this year’s gala,” said foundation executive director, Brandon Wells. “Sponsorship support is critical and allows us to provide life-changing services to people with vision loss at our Center for Visionary Solutions.”

For decades, Bosma’s Center for Visionary Solutions has worked closely with Hoosiers who are visually impaired. Through its rehabilitation and employment services, the center helps adults gain the life skills they need to remain independent and the job skills they need to stay self-sufficient.

“Ansell is thrilled to sponsor this signature event,” said Angie Phillips, VP Regional Sales - Commercial Americas Medical NA. “Bosma is a vital resource in Central Indiana for people who are blind or visually impaired, and we are grateful for the opportunity to support Bosma’s impactful programs and services through this sponsorship.”

Ansell delivers advanced protection solutions to millions of people at work and at home. Their products and expertise keep customers out of harm’s way.

Dining in the Dark will take place at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2024. Tickets and sponsorships can be purchased online.
