The Vernon Lions are set to solve a mystery

Vernon Lions Club host spring fundraiser that promises intrigue — and dinner

The spring Murder Mystery fundraiser presented by the Vernon Lions Club is coming to the Schubert Centre for the fourth year in a row on Saturday.

Tickets are still available for the evening event which includes a full buffet dinner, an entertaining murder mystery play, a raffle basket extravaganza and a chance to bid on quality silent auction items.

Profits from this year’s event will support Independent Living of Vernon Youth Programs and the Schubert Centre Society Hearing Loop Project.

This year’s play is entitled Spotlight On Murder by Jim and Joyce Elderton, and volunteer experienced actors from the community have been tirelessly rehearsing their parts.

Producer Val Heuman is thrilled about the play set in Halifax in the late ‘50s as a small theatre company completes their final night prior to packing up the show for an engagement in New York.

The players are hoping to be discovered on the U.S. stage but their Halifax closing night performance brings some nasty surprises, turning the spotlight on murder instead.

Get your tickets from Lions Club members, Jack at the Schubert Centre or by calling Lion Patrick at 250-549-3090. Your vote for who has blood on their hands could win you a terrific prize.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for cocktails, with the first part of the murder mystery taking place at 6 p.m. Dinner starts at 7:15 p.m. followed by the second part of the murder mystery at 8:15 p.m.
