St. Charles History Museum to Hold Murder Mystery Night at Pheasant Run Resort on April 12 Special Fundraiser with Vero Voce to Benefit the Museum

ST. CHARLES, Ill. (March 10, 2019) - The St. Charles History Museum will be hosting its annual benefit fundraiser on Friday, April 12 from 6 - 9 p.m. on Bourbon Street at Pheasant Run Resort. This year, Vero Voce will present Murder on the Bayou, an original murder mystery interactive script written exclusively for this event and set in 1920s New Orleans.

The event kicks off NoLA-style with cocktails on St Charles' very own version of Bourbon Street in the heart of Pheasant Run Resort. As murder ensues, pursue the clues within Preservation A while dining on heavy appetizers and desserts. Come dressed for the 1920's New Orleans-themed event, as there will be a costume contest prize awarded at the end of the evening.

"We are so excited to partner with these two great outstanding community organizations for this unique night to remember," said Alison Costanzo, Executive Director of the St. Charles History Museum. "We hope that supporters of the Museum and members of the community alike will join us to have fun and learn more about what we're all about."

Tickets to the event are $75 per person, and can be purchased on the Pheasant Run Resort website at www.pheasantrun.com/murder-mystery-event. Admission includes 2 drinks, a three-course dinner (hors d'oeuvres, peppercorn crusted sirloin, a salad station, and assorted desserts), and interactive entertainment presented by Vero Voce with all proceeds going to benefit the St. Charles History Museum.

Pheasant Run Resort will also be offering a Murder on the Bayou package including full admission to the event, plus deluxe overnight accommodations at the resort and one breakfast voucher per adult. The special package starts at $279.
