Murder-mystery fundraiser nets about $4,000
An official with the Sacramento Valley Museum in Williams said Monday that the murder-mystery dinner is expected to raise about $4,000 for the museum.
The museum sold tickets and held a raffle to raise money for the Saturday event and fed 90 attendees while they did their best to figure out who killed internationally famous — and of course, fictional — rock 'n' roll star Rock N. Roley.
The theme of this year's event was "Class of '54."
Attendees decked out in poodle skirts and leather jackets enjoyed a dinner catered by Louis Cairos while similarly garbed performers acted out the murder investigation.
"All of the bills have not yet been paid, but we think about $4,000 was made." wrote Cindy Gobel, member of the museum's board of trustees, in an email on Monday.
The museum has a variety of exhibits which some people found time to observe during the intermissions. Among those were the dry-goods exhibit, the Sacramento Valley military exhibit and the Colusa County Free Masons exhibit.
Those exhibits are available for viewing by the public from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday or by appointment by contacting Kathy Manor at email@example.com.
