CORNWALL, Ontario - With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner a local non-profit agency is using the love of all things Irish to spread the word about its good deeds.
Rachel's Kids is presenting a murder mystery dinner theatre March 15 at the Ramada Inn.
Gillian Oxley-Harper, a member of the Rachel's Kids board, said the event is not a fundraiser as much as it is an opportunity to draw awareness to the work they do.
"We want people to learn about us as much as they can," she said.
Rachel's Kids is a non-profit agency that raises money and awareness around the plight of local underprivileged children, as well as those overseas.
"Fare Thee Well Darby O'Shea" was written by local playwright Laurie McRae-Bingley.
The show has an Irish wake theme - celebrating the life of Darby O'Shea, who was murdered on her birthday. Darby's so-called friends are all guests at the wake; but audience members must decide which one is the murderer.
A three-course meal will be featured, along with wine. Tickets for the event are $60.
The evening begins with cocktails at 6 p.m. and the show at 7 p.m.
