The 2023 Murder Mystery fundraiser - Rupert

After 10 years of success with our Murder Mystery, AFFNO has decided to change venues for October 2023. Truthfully, we just need more space! Last year, after our return to Prince Rupert, the event was completely sold out by September 15! So, AFFNO has decided that this year, the mystery will take place Saturday, October 14 … at the Highliner Inn. The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. (doors at 5:45 p.m.). Tickets are only $65 and yes, dinner is included. Tickets (150 in total) are now available at Cook’s Jewellers (Prince Rupert) but to reserve a table (or to pay via E-transfer), you must call 250-627-1313 by September 21! This year’s theme: 1940s Las Vegas! Age is 19+. The mystery is also our fundraiser, so there will also be a live auction during the event. For more information, contact us 250-627-1313 or Note that our mystery for Kitimat, normally at the end of October, has been postponed until February 2024.
