The Sags Harbor Lions Club will host a reception for the Guide Dog Foundation on Saturday, December 9, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Almond, located at 1 Ocean Road in Bridgehampton, with all proceeds benefiting the foundation, which has provided guide dogs and training to the blind or visually impaired, free of charge, for the last 70 years.

“The Guide Dog Foundation pairs each student with the dog that’s right for them — and the power of their bond makes ordinary moments extraordinary,” according to a press release. “Crossing the street independently becomes a moment of liberation. Traveling alone becomes a welcome adventure. Embracing new experiences becomes an everyday occurrence.”

Tickets are $45, which include passed appetizers, wine, beer and cocktails, and storytelling at 4:30 p.m. A $35 prix fixe dinner will follow the event.
