Midnight at the Masquerade: A Murder Mystery Dinner

Murder Mystery_Mask.jpg

This fall, attend a thrilling evening at The War Memorial as we transform our campus into the Billionaires’ Club for a mystifying Masquerade Ball! As an unexpected tragedy occurs, it’s up to the guests of the evening to solve the crime! Join us as we unmask the culprit and discover the mystery under each feathery façade. Gather with friends and other guests to search for clues, questioning, and uncovering the guilty party to save the night. Not only is this masquerade ball full of intrigue and clandestine antics, but guests will enjoy a sinful three-course dinner to compliment this night of menace. Dress in your evening best. Gowns, venetian masks, and tuxes are all encouraged.
