Cafe International Invite

Café International 2011

A Mysterious Murder
International House

University of Melbourne

We graciously welcome you to attend our annual fundraiser:

A '20s Murder Mystery  
Café International 2011

This year, Café International takes you on the exciting and mysterious trail of a 1920s Murder Case. Follow our world famous detective through a whole new style and format to our entertainment program, and enjoy the most exciting experience of your year as the murder case unveils.

We take this opportunity to formally invite you to a night of first class entertainment and fine dining, and to take delight in the vast variety of talent the students of International House have to offer. Every year, we donate a percentage of the money raised to a charity, and this year, we
have decided to donate 50% of the funds raised from Café International to
sister campus, International House in Queensland, due to the terrible damage they sustained during the Summer floods. International House Brisbane has been forced to close down for the entirety of the first semester of this year, and we are all eager to help them in their goal to reopen in July, so that they can start supporting students as International House Melbourne supports us.

Café International will be held on Saturday, 7

th May 2011
International House,

241 Royal Parade, Parkville

Our doors will open at 6:30pm for some pre-dinner drinks and entertainment, with

dinner and the show commencing at 7:15pm.

Dress Code: Black Tie

Tickets are available at AUD $80.00/person, inclusive of a three-course meal, free flow of beverages, and an intriguing night of performances and mystery.

RSVP by 22 April 2011

We have had a great time in years gone by with Café, and at the same time we support both International House and Rotary who are major benefactors of IH in Parkville.
