The Kiwanis Club of Old Bridge celebrated its “Roaring 20’s Gangland Mystery” Fundraiser on Saturday, April, 26, 2014 at the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh in Old Bridge and the event proved to be a wonderful success. Nearly one hundred guests were on hand to participate in the interactive murder mystery set in “The Juice Joint” nightclub of the 20’s. Many went home with prizes awarded in the Tricky Tray portion of the event and a New York Giants’ football autographed by defensive star Antrel Rolle was auctioned off at the event.

Old Bridge resident Al Dellelba was the winner of the 50-50 drawing and guests who correctly identified the murderer in the play were rewarded with free tickets to a future play by the Main Street Players Theater Company in Sayreville. All proceeds from the night will be divided up by the Kiwanis Club of Old Bridge to benefit the children’s charities to which it donates.

Besides sponsoring five Kiwanis school clubs in the Old Bridge School District, Kiwanis Club of Old Bridge sponsors an Old Bridge Little League team and donates to charities like Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, Old Bridge Food Bank, Camp Robin, St. Jude Hospital and others.
