CHARLES CITY – Time is running out for the unsuspecting “victim” of the upcoming Murder Mystery Dinner on Saturday, Feb. 24th … and for those interested in attending this fun event who don’t have their tickets yet.
Only a handful of tickets remain available for Saturday’s event at the Floyd County Fairgrounds Youth Enrichment Center, which will serve as the annual Charles City Area Chamber of Commerce dinner and auction. In addition to a prime rib dinner catered by Dave’s Restaurant and an opportunity to bid on fabulous items in the silent and live auctions, participants will be treated to an interactive dinner theatre. The “Totally 80s, Totally Murder” theme encourages attendees to dress in their best 80’s attire and go with the big hair look as part of the fun. Everyone will be invited to help solve the mystery of “who dun it” after someone at the event turns up “murdered.”
A troupe of actors from The Murder Mystery Co. will be on hand to produce the murder mystery fun in a Clue-style manner that promises lots of audience participation, laughs and surprises. Last year’s Chamber dinner event, featuring a different themed murder mystery, drew rave reviews. Unlike last year’s event, however, there will be more elbow room for the expected crowd of 250-plus with the larger venue at the fairgrounds.
Included among the over 40 auction items generously donated by Chamber member businesses this year are a 43″ 4K Smart TV, Security System, six-burner gas grill, and two tickets to the Chanhassen Dinner Theater. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards Chamber activities and services.
Cocktail hour will begin at 5:30 p.m., with several specialty drinks featured at the cash bar just for this 80’s theme night. The buffet-style meal will begin at 6 p.m. and the entertainment at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 each for Chamber members and $35 for non-members. The event is expected to sell out before Saturday so don’t delay. Get yours as soon as possible at the Chamber office, 401 North Main St. in Charles City, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. through Friday.
