Get Horry County Literacy Council Murder Mystery Dinner Tickets | Horry County

The Horry County Literacy Council’s biggest fundraiser, a murder mystery dinner at the Grande Dunes Golf Club, is what makes Horry County read.

The event will take place on Saturday February 4th.

Production is the primary means by which the Council raises funds, with other means being donations and grants.

Funds raised will allow the council to “continue to have a positive impact on our community,” said Cheryl Mathieu, council executive director.

This impact currently serves over 60 students with one-on-one tutoring at area libraries and over 200 in after-school programs at recreation centers.

Students are served at recreation centers in North Strand, South Strand, Carolina Forest, and Green Sea.

Tutoring is free, volunteer training is free, and materials are free.

This will be the second year of the Murder Mystery Dinner due to COVID-19. The event took place in 2020 but not in 2021 or 2022.

This year, the Carolina Forest High School Drama Club is writing and producing the script for the presentation “Who Killed Broadway?”

CFHS acting professor Meredith Taylor said the show was “a version of an old Hollywood production from the 1950s when the main character, whose name is Broadway, finds himself murdered and everyone is interrogated.”

Approximately 20 students from the Advanced Drama Department will be involved.

The Council used to welcome students as young as second graders, but COVID-19 has caused a large influx of first graders. From now on, pupils from CP to seniors are supervised by the association.

What the Council expects from the community, as well as more volunteers and students, is for people to attend the Murder Mystery dinner at 6 p.m. on February 4 by getting their tickets in November. Call the council office at 843-945-4105 or use PayPal or check.

In addition to tutoring, the Council offers the Reading Creates program, which is also free with no registration required.
