Mall Madness Murder Mystery Fundraiser 

August 24th, 2024

5 – 9 PM @ The Historic Atlas Theatre


It’s 1985, and real estate developer and “entrepreneur” Whit Wiley has just cut the ribbon, opening the newest marvel in his shopping mall empire: the Wiley Waterside Galleria Mall in Malibu.  Whit was to top the Forbes list of most rich and powerful men of 1985 – until he washed up in the mall fountain, strangled by his skinny tie. 

Who could be responsible for the murder of this influential businessman?    

Was it his first wife, Willhemina Wiley, seeking revenge for Whit Wiley’s many extramarital affairs?  Was it local super shopper Connie Sumer, angry over the Galleria’s inflated scrunchie prices?  Or was it fashion designer Cal Von Cline who objected to Wiley’s appallingly gaudy bad taste?     

Time to whip out that credit card and tease that hair as big as it can go –    shopping for a murderer in 80’s Mall Murder Madness!

80’s Mall Murder Madness Mystery Fundraiser, hosted by The Arc of Laramie County, will be held at the Historic Atlas Theatre on Saturday, August 24th, 2024, at 5 pm. It may be an evening of fun and frivolity, but it will also be an evening of murder. Our volunteer cast will guide you through an exciting, interactive performance. The evening includes Hors D’oeuvres, a silent and paddle auction, prizes, and fun!!!

A sponsorship is a great way to get your name out in the community. Additionally, you can feel good knowing you have made a difference in the life of someone with an intellectual/developmental disability. All funds raised will benefit The Arc of Laramie County, a chapter of the largest organization for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Your support will not only help foster respect but also create opportunities for a person with I/DD to achieve their goals. You can become a sponsor and support a vital community service. Please get in touch with Charity Henning at [email protected] or 307-632-1209 to sign up as a sponsor or for more information. Auction items and other in-kind donations are also appreciated.

Building Community for All

For over 70 years, The Arc has been fighting for people with disabilities to live independently with the right supports and lead the same kind of life as everyone else. People with disabilities and their families want access to a life in the community, no matter the level of supports necessary to make that happen. But when they try to find what they need, too often the system fails them.

Everyone benefits when people with disabilities are a part of the fabric of our communities, not locked away in the archaic institutions that still exist in 36 states. Institutions are large, often crowded places that limit people and their choices and force them to live segregated lives away from their family and friends without access to the supports needed to live in their own homes and communities. Yet this country has treated access to the services that help people with disabilities gain independence as an option, not a right. This is even more urgent during the pandemic, as crowded institutions and nursing homes have put people at much greater risk of contracting COVID-19.
