MOBSTERS AND MOLLS WANTED TO HELP FIGHT CANCER
The following is a press release from Relay For Life of Bethel/Danbury/Redding–
A murder mystery dinner fundraiser will be held to raise money for the American Cancer Society on Sunday, November 9, 2011. The event will be held at Anthony’s Lake House (10 Christopher Columbus Ave. Danbury, CT) from 5-9 PM.
The theme of the dinner is a 1020′s speakeasy. The Juice Joint, a swanky speakeasy run by Rosie Marie, has been nothing but jumping. To celebrate its success, Rosie is planning a party to remember at the exclusive nightspot. With murder on the menu, there are a medley of individuals to make the night most memorable: the major mobsters and their molls, the swanky singer with her hopes of Hollywood, the cigarette girl with a temper that sizzles, the crooked police chief with nothing to lose, the Mayor who might be capable of murder and many more.
Tickets are $40/person, which includes the price of dinner and entertainment. Those who volunteer to play one of the characters only pay $30/person. Buffet dinner & cash bar.
To play a character, attendees must RSVP by Oct. 14. There are at least 6 men, 7 women and two gender neutral roles to fill – first come, first serve. There are no scripts to memorize. An outline of your character’s personality, background and costume suggestions will be sent on October 16 in order to prepare, and upon entering the party, each character will receive more details about their role in the actual murder. Everything else depends on how you want to portray your character.
Everyone else must RSVP by October 24. The dinner is for ages 21+ up only.
All payments MUST be received by October 24. Please contact Allison at 203-885-3464 or bethelmurdermystery.com for payment options.
