Death of A Doornail raises funds for Great Cause

LUVLife the High School youth group with First Presbyterian Church in Pueblo, Colorado will be presenting "Death Of A Doornail" by Lee Mueller to raise money for the national nonprofit Project C.U.R.E.

From the Puelbo Chieftain Online
After trips to Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic in 2006 and 2007, the youth group decided to forgo a summer mission trip this year to save money.

Instead, they devoted themselves to raising money to help equip the hospital they helped to build last summer, along with other volunteers under the auspices of Ministries in Action, in the town of Hato Nuevo, just outside Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

Their goal is $20,000 by the time the hospital opens next year, and they've raised more than $8,300 so far with regular chile and cornbread dinners at the church, calendar and bake sales and other events.

Performances for the Murder Mystery will begin at 6 p.m., starting with hors d'oeuvres in the fellowship hall. The first act of "Death of a Doornail" will follow in the sanctuary. Dinner will be served during intermission, when audience members will be given clues about the identity of the "who" in the whodunit.

WHERE: First Presbyterian Church, 220 W. 10th St.
