The second annual benefit for the Washington County Children’s Justice Center will be held on Friday August 5th at the Bell Tower Mystery Dinner Theater. Everyone in attendance will enjoy fine dining prepared by Chef Randall Richards and the crew of the Painted Pony. You will have the opportunity to interact with the cast as the comical cruise caper unfolds. It will be an evening of fun, food, class and sophistication as you are treated to an evening of mystery, magic and mayhem.
The show is very professional; all the actors are local St. George and Washington County, UT residents who volunteer. Some of the actors participated in the benefit’s first event last year. The Justice Center was founded in 1997 and the WCCJC is a nonprofit organization. Their mission is to provide a safe and stable environment for St. George and other Washington County children who are involved in physical and sexual abuse.
A child who is victimized is often shuffled between places and agencies and is interviewed over and over by different people. In this facility, the WCCJC has a goal to take the multiple agencies involved in investigating such crimes and put them all under one roof in a safe place. The facility looks like a large home inside and out and it’s designed to help children to feel safe and comfortable while dealing with the frightening and traumatic reasons that brought them there.
If you are passionate about benefits like this one and want to participate, you can visit the Bell Tower Mystery Theater at 1386 East 100 South in St. George, starting at 6 p.m. The admission for the event including dinner is $95 per person. Guests are asked to wear black and white summer sophisticated dress.
