Mystery Dinner Theater received a packed house and Miles for Smiles surpasses goal.

An evening to die for

The Friends of the Bruton Memorial Library’s Mystery Dinner Theater received a packed house Aug. 25 at the Trinkle Center. The annual show featured prominent citizens in Plant City and raised money for the Bruton Memorial Library.

Attendees were provided a catered dinner and an open bar during the show. Toward the end of the play the cast sold clues on the murder mystery and audience members guessed the culprit, method and motive behind the crime. The final act revealed which table guessed correctly and the winner received a prize at the end of the show.

Miles for Smiles reaches goal

Margie Gonzalez walked 87 miles for her 87th birthday. A member of Plant City’s General Federation of Women’s Clubs, Gonzalez raised money for Operation Smiles. She walked the final mile on Aug. 25 while joined by club members, friends and family.

Gonzalez was able to successfully raise $5,300, which will provide 21 surgeries for those in need. 

She is still taking donations for the cause and anyone interested can contact her at 813-754-4656.
