Purim Murder Mystery Party

Saturday 2/27 7:30-9:00 pm

Click Here to register

Team up with BJC friends and family to solve a chilling mystery! This is a fictional murder, although it is based on an actual murder that occurred in 1923 at a speakeasy in downtown Washington, D.C. We will work in teams to solve puzzles that will earn us clues to unravel the story of what happened and to ultimately solve the mystery. We will be divided into groups of 30 people per Zoom room, and within the group we will gather in various team breakout rooms at points throughout the program.

Tickets can be purchased for $36 per person/$50 per couple. We encourage both members of a couple to join the party on a separate device, so everyone has a chance to meet and work with new people. This event is not appropriate for children under the age of 15. 

This program will be run by a group of professionals who typically work withint business settings to promote team and relationship building. We hope that we will all leave this experience having met and worked with several other BJC members that we did not previously know. 

Part of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit BJC.
