Actors from The Catastrophic Theatre playing Mrs. Peacock, Miss Scarlet, Professor Plumb and rest of the gang emerged as suspects in Clue-like fashion when a runway model “dropped dead” and her jewels appeared to be stolen. Guests participated in helping the Chief Inspector solve the mystery while sipping champagne and eating delicious mini-cupcakes from Sprinkles. Vivian Wise introduced the evening’s honoree, her sister Mary Elizabeth Sand, who spoke about her personal experience with the mysterious disease Lupus. The evening’s event raised funds for the Texas Legacy Foundation, who will make a direct contribution to the Lupus Foundation of America, Texas Gulf Coast Chapter.
