More than 200 people attended the ‘Murder at the Masquerade’ fundraiser last Friday that was presented by the Mesalands Community College Foundation, Inc. This event was held in the Great Room at Mesalands Community College. During the show, guests traded clues and gathered information to identify the masked killer. Preliminary net proceeds for the Mesalands Foundation are over $6,000, which will be used to support programs that benefit Mesalands Community College and their students.
“This event was just absolutely great,” said Dr. Thomas W. Newsom, President of Mesalands Community College said. “The most exciting part about the entire event was the fact that we hosted this fundraiser on our campus. This campus belongs to the community and we want the community to feel welcome and part of Mesalands Community College.”
The Murder Mystery Company performed three different acts at the ‘Murder at the Masquerade’ fundraiser. The production was interactive, funny, and exciting for the attendees. There was also a live and silent auction that took place throughout the event.
“This fundraiser was fantastic! It was nice to see people on campus again that have not been here in 10 to 15 years,” said James Streetman, Secretary/Clerk of the Mesalands Community College Board of Trustees and Secretary of the Mesalands Community College Foundation Board. “I want to thank everyone that came out and participated in our ‘Murder at the Masquerade’ fundraiser. On behalf of the Mesalands Foundation, we appreciate your continued support.”
