Murder mystery dinner to raise money for MCCAC

MORGANTOWN — The Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center will host a benefit from 7-10 p.m. Saturday at Atria’s/The Holiday Inn, 1188 Pineview Drive.

The murder mystery dinner party, The Ravenswood Masquerade, is set in Bloodworth Falls, an isolated town full of scandal, blackmail and deceit. The townsfolk bicker in the streets, and many believe the local government to be corrupt. Nevertheless, the mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Ravenwood Castle, and the tickets to the event have sold out in record time.

The townspeople are curious to find out why the mayor would put effort into doing something positive in this town of gloom, but all are eagerly hunting for the perfect mask. You are worried what will happen on this night when toxic people gather at the castle. You are alarmed, as you didn’t purchase your ticket — it was placed in your mailbox in an unmarked envelope. Somebody wants you there, but you don’t know why. This is where your story begins.

Cocktail attire and masks encouraged.

Guests have the option of purchasing tables at a discounted rate of $325 (tables seat eight). Those who wish to purchase a table may contact Kelsey or Dr. Capage at 304-598-0344.

Tickets include dinner at 7:30 p.m., the interactive murder mystery, DJ and live entertainment, and a cash bar. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event starts promptly at 7 p.m.

General admission ticket sales end today. Tickets cost $50.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center, which provides free services for child abuse victims and traumatized children.
