Murder in Sin City dinner theatre Saturday

Ashlee Hyde is a busy woman these days organizing events and promotions.

Ashlee Hyde is a busy woman these days organizing events and promotions not only for the Women’s Contact Society for the Canadian Mental Health Association and for Community Living.

“I have a few events coming up in the next three months,” Hyde says.

Murder in Sin City, a murder mystery dinner fundraiser for the Association for Community Living is first up on April 25 at the Signal Point Event Centre.

“Guests will be assigned a character if they would like to be one and if not they can help solve the mystery of ‘Who Dunnit?’” Hyde says. “There will be prizes for the first and second person to solve the murder.”

There will be a buffet dinner and a bar. Centre doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $60 each.

The Women’s Contact Society’s annual Handbags of Hope Auction will take place at the Signal Point Gaming Centre and Thyme for Tea/Yellow Umbrella on May 15.

All proceeds from this event go the Prevention of Violence Against Women programs.

“We will have new and gently used handbags for live and silent auctions as well as some amazing mystery prizes,” Hyde says.

Tickets are $25 and are available at Women’s Contact Society, Signal Point Gaming and Thyme for Tea/Yellow Umbrella.

The annual Children’s Festival happens on May 31 this year from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Boitanio Park.

Activities will include three main-stage performances by Science World at this free family event.

“There will be fun children’s activities provided by different businesses, service providers and arts clubs,” Hyde adds.

There will also be door prizes for children ages 0-3 years, 4-5 years and 6-plus.

“We hope to see you there rain or shine,” Hyde says.

Then on June 21 the Canadian Mental Health Association is hosting Ride Don’t Hide event. “We are encouraging people to put in a team and help us raise money for our mental health, safety and homelessness and housing programs,” Hyde says.

The ride will be in the Williams Lake River Valley trail starting with stretching and team sign in at 9 a.m. and the ride starting at 10 a.m.

For more information about any of the above events please contact Ashlee Hyde at 250-392-4118 or events@womenscontact.org.
