The 2017 Murder Mystery Fundraising Tea Party by Women n Charge at the Grove

Friday, Oct 13, 2017 | On Target Page: Land O'Lakes, Wesley Chapel, Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce

Women in charge celebrated their annual fundraising Tea. This year’s Tea was held Saturday, September 30, 2017, at The Groves Golf and Country Club. The Murder Mystery Play was called: Mayhem on Maui - Murder in Paradise - Who Spiked the Hawaiian Punch?

It was the generous sponsors, volunteers, and supporters for helping women in charge that made the event possible. There were raffle prizes and a hat contest. Prizes were awarded for The Best Themed, The Loveliest, The Most Creative, and The Most Elegant. Also, "Sherla Combs" the great detective, solved a crime during the tea party

The proceeds raised will fund the woman in charge grant program for women in business. Each spring they donate two $1,000 grants. To learn more about Women-n-Charge or their grant program, click here:
