Fresno Art Museum offers a murder-mystery fundraiser

Fresno Art Museum

Remember the successful Fresno Art Museum “Grand Gatsby Speakeasy and Casino Night” fundraiser? Now we’re ready for Part 2. “Murder at the Grand Gatsby Speakeasy” is 7-11 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at an undisclosed location (you’ll get the address when you buy the tickets, which adds to the mystique of it all). Tickets are $125 a person.

The 1920s-themed evening includes a tour of the hosts’ storehouse of antique autos. There will be wine and appetizers, a main course at the ’20s-era banquet buffet, and coffee and dessert, all while you take in clues to solve the “murder.” Along the way you’ll meet such characters as nightclub singer Kara Low, crime boss Beanie O’Dannon and tabloid newspaper reporter Wyleen Black. Or did the butler do it?

You’re welcome to dress in 1920s style, but it isn’t required.

You can buy tickets by calling the museum at 559-441-4221.
