Hollywood Homicide Murder Mystery Dinner
Last night, October 10, 2012, St. Mary’s Hospital Guild of Passaic held their Hollywood Homicide Murder Mystery Dinner, and all proceeds went to St Mary’s Hospital. The event took place at the Venetian in Garfield, 546 River Drive Garfield NJ, 07026. There were over 180 people who attended the dinner and had a marvelous time with the festivities planned for the event. The Hollywood Homicide Murder Mystery Dinner included delicious food, access to the cash bar, prizes and much more! Audience Pleasers provided the decoration for this event which included props such as: large gold comedy and tragedy masks, Oscar Standees, backdrop of paparazzi, red carpet along with the stanchion and red rope, gold and black pipe and drape, and artificial cement for hand prints.All of the attendees were fascinated with the decorations, and they especially loved the cement hand printing. There were many memories of fun and excitement created this night. Many participants came to the event dressed as their favorite movie star or director, alive or dead. And those who did not dress up in a costume, they dressed to impress for the dinner.
Participants enjoyed a 5 course meal, many of attendees took pictures with the backdrop, and pictures of themselves on the red carpet, many attendees participated in the cement hand printing, and most importantly, the participants had the chance to help “Solve and Crime”, which was the theme for the dinner. Anyone in the dinner was a suspect of the crime, and one of the objectives of the night, other than raising funds of St. Mary’s Hospital, was to participate in the team building role playing of the crime investigation.
The crime could have occurred any time of the night, cocktail hour, the meal, dessert or whenever; the point of the role playing crime investigation was for all participants to solve the mysterious crime.
