Amarillo, Texas (PRWEB) April 23, 2012
Street Toyota employees attended and participated in a benefit for abused children being sponsored by The Bridge of Amarillo, Texas.
Dave Walker, Scion Manager at Street Toyota and also a member of The Bridge was part of the cast Friday night when the Bridge held its annual Murder Mystery Dinner. The theme this year was “Until Death Do We Part,” which was a wedding mystery where one of the cast members mysteriously died during the ceremony. Walker was the wedding singer prior the wedding ceremony and held an important role during the play.
“I was really excited to be performing before the play began as guests arrived,” Walker said. “The most important thing for me was that I was able to donate my time for such a good cause.”
The evening’s play also included other Street Toyota members randomly chosen from the audience to participate. Natalie Slatton, Marketing Coordinator and David Meraz, Director of Social Media also joined the cast Friday evening.
“I was really shocked and nervous to be picked to join the cast on stage at first,” Slatton. “But seeing everyone else on stage with me was really exciting and my nerves quickly calmed down.”
Natalie and David were part of the band during the wedding where they played imaginary instruments. As the evening progressed David was a suspect in murder of one of the cast members.
“It was such a great evening seeing my co-workers on stage,” Slatton said. “I think the reason we do things like this is to help out the community, and it just so happens that this time it included a little humor and murder.”
