Murder mystery tickets available

Parksville Rotary Club gives an opportunity to express your inner detective

Jocelyn Worcestor. Is she one of the suspects?

Feel like getting in touch with your inner detective?

Tickets are still available for a murder mystery evening at the Beach Club Resort on January 28. The Rotary Club of Parksville AM is presenting the Pink Lace Diamond Murder Mystery. A 1940s theme depicting the bygone era of the hard-boiled detective genre will be the setting for the fundraiser. Murder is on the menu and guests are encouraged to dress in period costume as they attempt to flush out the unsub.  Rotary spokesperson Sandy Herle said all funds raised from the event will stay in Parksville and a portion will be directed toward programs designed to support youth at risk and other worthwhile local Rotary projects. Tickets are $75 per person and only 120 are available.

Murder as well as a scrumptious meal are on the menu as a devious plot is brewing in Parksville. It is up to the guests to figure out who is up to no good. While enjoying the dinner, attendees will find themselves immersed in clues and a few red herrings as they participate in a fun-filled evening of theatre and camaraderie with like-minded sleuths. Herle said the clues will be plentiful and the prize worth the hunt.  She said whoever unmasks the diabolical perpetrator will win a one night stay at the Beach Club and if there is more than one person who unveil’s the real culprit there will be a draw for the prize.

The Rotary Club of Parksville AM hopes it will become an annual fundraising event.   Contact Herle at Close to You in Parksville at 250-248-3781 for tickets. The evening begins with cocktails at 6 followed by a scrumptious meal at 7 p.m.
