Roulette Wheel

We are pleased to present our third annual Murder Mystery Dinner and Silent Auction Fundraiser on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at the Schubert Centre in Vernon.

"Roulette" portrays the risky business in the underworld of the Las Vegas gambling scene. Everyone is motivated by avarice or fear to try to tip the weight of the wheel in their favour. This inevitably leads to disharmony and even death. Who will rise to the top and who will disappear is the mystery of this gripping story by local playwrights Jim Elderton and Joyce Hodgson.

Funds raised this year are directed to the Learning Disabilities Association of Vernon and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Polson Tower Expansion.

The Vernon Lions Club urges you to support this major fundraiser by donating an item or items to our Silent Auction. Tickets to the event are now available. Click to see poster details.

For further information on the Murder Mystery/Silent Auction please contact Mike Smith at 250 542-9123.
