Murder Mystery

2021 Virtual Murder Mystery was a Success!

Murder Mystery was a great success on all fronts. With the help of sponsors, donors, attendees, actors and volunteers, more than $15,000 was raised to support RALC’s adult literacy work in our community.

Don’t miss out! Make plans today to attend Murder Mystery – a fun, interactive event where community leaders and professional actors perform a mystery comedy play – and attendees work in teams to solve the “crime” in a team. This year’s event will be live-streamed on Zoom, allowing guests to congregate with their team or play from their homes!

Bloomingdale’s Floral and CBD Botanicals has been “Family-owned” by the eccentric entrepreneur, C.C. BLOOMINGDALE for years. Now, with each of his feuding children and ex-wives vying for a bigger piece of the pie, family lawyer, FERN CHEATEM (of Cheatem, Scratchem, and Scowl) has scheduled ZOOM retreat to discuss “family matters” AND to celebrate their father’s 95th birthday.  With so many jobs and livelihoods at stake during a pandemic, is it time for someone to get closer and stop the madness?  Or will 6 feet apart = 6 feet under?
