Brewing for Murder

Held on Saturday, September 28, 2019

6:00p.m. - 9:30p.m.

Plantation Club

On Saturday evening, September 28, A Murder was Brewing in Ocean Ridge. One hundred guests participated in an interactive musical Murder Mystery put on by Get-A-Clue Productions from Wilmington.  In the fashion of Agatha Christie, 5 people have been lured to the ORCA Brewery, otherwise known as the Plantation Club, by an unknown mastermind who had more than beer tasting in mind.  The audience participated in the show.

Neighbors very generously donated over 30 desktops, 40 laptops, 22 monitors, multiple smartphones, and so much more. 


The total value is conservatively appraised at over $10,000.

Christmas Stocking Stuffers

from ORCA

Looking for that perfect, last-minute holiday gift for that someone in your life that's oh so difficult to buy for?  The Ocean Ridge Charities Association (ORCA) has two special gift suggestions available for OR residents and friends:

  • The ORCA International Dining Club membership

  • The ORCA Cookbook 


We will be selling both of them at the Ocean Ridge Holiday Arts and Crafts Show and Sale, November 16 at the Plantation Club from 10am - 2pm.  During this event we again are offering our reduced pricing of $45 for the combo purchase.  Either or both would make excellent birthday or hostess gifts as well as useful Christmas stocking stuffers.

Thank you in advance for your consideration...and


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
