PLYMOUTH – Once the promise of gold had brought them to Deadwood, but now the once thriving city of outlaws run by Jimmy Hayward only sees the occasional stagecoach. It’s the prime address for murder.
Your job on Oct. 28 is to solve that murder mystery as part of Delta Theta Tau’s Murder Mystery Dinner for this year. The ladies have turned Christo’s Banquet Center into Deadwood for a night of fun, food and prizes with all the proceeds going to The Boys & Girls Club of Marshall County.
“It’s really a great night of fun,” said Paula Neidlinger, one of the event’s organizers. “This year the play is a sort of comedy. We’re all dressed up in wild west costumes and do a sort of theatre in the round there at Christo’s. We get involved with the audience and this year a few lucky people in the audience are going to get brought up on stage to help out with the story.”
The evening is a “ladies only” event and perfect for a girls night out. Family-style dinner will be served with a cash bar and lots of door prizes, a 50-50 draw, silent auction and an award for the best costume.
“The group that solves the mystery will also get a cash prize,” said Neidlinger. “You can buy a table to sit together and make sure that you have a good group.”
Delta Theta Tau is a women’s organization that has been dedicated to the advancement of philanthropy in the spirit of fellowship for over 100 years. They raise money for many charities including their yearly Mystery Dinner fundraiser.
“The Best Kept Secret in Deadwood” will be figured out on Oct. 28 at Christos’ Banquet Center with the doors opening at 5:30 p.m. Tickets for the event are $40 a person, a table of eight for $280 and table of 10 for $350.
Seats are on a first come, first served basis and you can reserve yours by getting in touch with Jaime Borden at mjmmborden@com cast.net or calling 574-540-2037.
