Winfield Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (WCPAAA) is bringing back its popular murder mystery dinner fundraiser with the March 17 production of “A Deadly Incentive” at Baden Square in Winfield. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the production and dinner will begin at 7.

The St. Patrick’s Day event will feature a murder mystery play production, where the audience will interact with the victim and suspect(s) in hopes of figuring out “whodunnit.” An Irish dinner will be served, including shepherd’s pie, coleslaw, glazed carrots, garlic potato bread and dessert. Water, tea and coffee are included.

Also available at the event are commemorative beer mugs with Bud Light on tap, available to guests 21 and older.

“A Deadly Incentive” is set in Seamus O’Malley’s Pub and Grub, a place that Seamus holds most dear to his heart. Business hasn’t been all that great lately, so he’s hired Peter Blackwell and his public relations team at Blackwell’s List to help him put his cherished pub back on the map.

How? With a treasure hunt that promises a pot of gold at the end of its “rainbow,” specifically, $5,000 worth of gold doubloons that have been in Seamus’s family for generations.

Do you have what it takes to find the pot of gold? Be warned and beware, the competition is fierce.

Though not required, guests are encouraged to wear Irish themed costumes to help set the mood.

A silent auction and door prizes will round out the evening of fun and festivities. All proceeds go to the WCPAAA to further their volunteer activities.

Discounts are available for the purchase of a full table (eight tickets). Tickets must be purchased in advance.

To order tickets or for more information, call or text (620) 222-0123, or email
