Last year’s inaugural Lions Club fundraiser attracted more than 100 attendees and raised approximately $7,000. “We were a complete sell out last year and as we get closer this year it looks like we’ll do the same,” said Ashland Lions Club President Kandel Cain. “With tickets going fast, I encourage everyone to get theirs soon. We hope our community comes out to support eyesight needs in Ashland and to have a fun evening with the Ashland Lions Club.”

Tickets to Murder at the Museum include the show, dinner and a complimentary wine and beer reception that begins at 6 p.m. The murder mystery starts at 7 p.m.
