‘Murder at the Family Reunion’ is the theme of this year’s ClueLess on Las Olas, the much anticipated annual fundraiser for Partners In Education. More than 500 amateur sleuths from around South Florida will be on Las Olas Boulevard on Thursday, March 23rd to solve the unique murder mystery game.
Produced in association with the Las Olas Association and Patterned after the board game Clue, ClueLess on Las Olas participants read an original mystery and then solve seven one-of-a-kind clues to determine which of the six suspects committed the murder and where or with what. The mystery is written by Tim Curtin, the 11th consecutive year of authoring the ClueLess mysteries.
Proceeds from ClueLess on Las Olas benefit Partners In Education, Inc., a 501c3 organization that assists public schools and students in Broward County by developing partnerships with business and community organizations.
On-site registration runs from 5:30 p.m. to 700 p.m. at Stranahan House and Laura Ward Park, at S.E. 6th Avenue and Las Olas Boulevard. After check-in at Stranahan House, participants enter the party at the adjacent Laura Ward Park, where they read the mystery and enjoy refreshments. At 7:00 p.m. sharp, the crowd is charged with helping solve the murder. They are introduced to the six suspects and then everyone takes off to the shops and restaurants on Las Olas to retrieve the clues.
Snitches are on the street to sell hints for $1 while the suspects generally provide misdirection. Everyone returns to the party by 8:30 p.m. to hear the final clue and accuse a suspect. Prizes are given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. The prize for the first place contestant will be two tickets on Southwest Airlines!
The silent auction runs from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with items from shops on Las Olas, signed sports memorabilia, dinner packages and hotel stays. In addition, participants enjoy a raffle, appetizer and dessert buffets, music and a bar with beverages courtesy of Pepsi, Breakthru Beverages and Stephens Distributing.
