Though we are living in a historic and uncertain time, you can rely on the Duluth Area Family YMCA to be here for good with an unwavering dedication to providing access and opportunities for all in our community to reach their potential and live their healthiest lives. We invite you to join us for a 20's Themed Virtual Murder Mystery Fundraiser as we toast a century of service to our community. The Duluth Area Family YMCA has been serving our community for over 150 years which means we’ve been there through the known and unknown for our community. But when a crisis like COVID-19 comes along, your support becomes even more critical. Your generosity allows us to remain innovative and reach far beyond our doors to meet the needs of our community, whether that means helping youth and families feel secure as they return to work, providing socialization for our seniors, feeding our neighbors, providing early childhood development care, or giving everyone in our community socially distanced health and wellness options.

TICKETS are $40 and inclued a MYSTERY BOX complete with a 14 oz. Old Fashion Glass and a popcorn snack from the Duluth Candy Company.

Need Something to fill that glass?

We've teamed up with Vikre to offer custom Cocktail Kits just for our Murder Mystery Soiree!  A huge thank you to Vikre for donating a portion of the proceeds from each kit sold to support the Y.  Get yours today to make your night complete. There's even a mocktail option so everyone can get in on the fun :)

With technology at our fingertips, our virtual Murder Mystery will deliver an unforgettable evening of entertainment, prize drawings, and awards for “best dressed”. Put on your glad rags, muddle a drink, and join us for a Gatsby-esque Murder Mystery from the comfort of your own home. You don’t need to get a baby-sitter, designate a driver, or worry about your shoes. Just log-in and sleuth your way through a mystery to uncover the murderer and gain bragging rights as the sharpest sleuth around.
