The following teams participated:

Proceeds from the contest netted nearly $1,500 for the CSEA Education Foundation, and the tricycles were donated to San Diego Rescue Mission. Congratulations to contest winner Team Godiva, and thanks to all entrant and participants for their efforts on behalf of the Education Foundation.

A Murder Mystery Dinner – Fundraising Event

Posted on February 6, 2015 by asoy

An Elite group of CSEA Members surprised the audience with a Murder Mystery Dinner at the CSEA Member dinner Saturday,  January 10 as an Education Foundation Fundraiser Event. Their brilliant acting and dramatic scenes of "Who Shot Don Santaclausio" made for a wonderful experience for all guests to enjoy.  Who knew CSEA Members were holding out on such talent. The evening was filled with laughter and suspense on what would happen next. The laughter and enjoyment carried on to the next morning, as you could hear CSEA Members talking among themselves about the prior night’s event and how great the Murder Mystery Dinner was.
