Have you got a ‘Clue’ about HIV in the Kootenays?

ANKORS is hosting a fundraiser in the style of a real life game of Clue at the Prestige Lakeside Resort

On Thursday, ANKORS is hosting a fundraiser in the style of a real life game of Clue at the Prestige Lakeside Resort.

The event, which will feature a prohibition-era Chicago theme, is part of ANKORS AIDS Walk for Life 2012, a fundraising drive from which all proceeds are used to support and augment care of HIV positive people in our Kootenay communities.

Michael Graham and Lisel Forst will co-host the fundraiser, which begins with a Mediterranean buffet and lounge singing, segues into the murder mystery and ends with a silent auction.

Participants will receive a character package providing intimate details about their character and secrets about other characters, and from there it’s all sleuthing and exchanging fake paper money with other characters in exchange for their silence or useful tips.

Tickets are $40 if you pre-register or $45 at the door for the dinner inclusive package, or $25 for pre-registration or $20 at the door for the murder mystery and silent auction, sans dinner. Upon registration, participants can opt to receive their character packages in the mail or at the door for the event. You can choose the gender of your character and costuming is highly encouraged.

Tickets can be purchased by calling ANKORS at 250-505-5506 or in person at Otter Books and The Music Store, both on Baker Street.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and murder mystery begins at 7 p.m.

This event is made possible by the generous sponsorships and support of Shambhala Music Festival, Nelson and District Credit Union, Nelson Brewing Company, Columbia Basin Trust, EZ-Rock, and the Kootenay Co-op radio.
