eDiscovery Can Be Murder: eDiscovery Charities

I know that working on some eDiscovery projects with difficult clients or opposing parties could get you thinking of murder, but, as I said before, I don’t know why anyone would consider committing a murder these days with DNA and all the ways we are tracked by Internet of Things (IoT) devices.  However, if you like to solve murders and are in the DC area (or plan to be in mid-May), here’s an event that’s for you.  Even better, your participation helps benefit a great cause!

Murder in the Manor is a charity fundraiser hosted by Oasis Discovery to be held May 16th at The Mansion on O Street in Washington DC (2020 O Street NW, Washington, DC 20036).  As Oasis says in their promo page for the event: “The night will be filled with mystery, entertainment, cocktails and lively conversation as we come together to bring attention to a good cause.”

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB), which is the largest public, non-profit hunger and nutrition education resource in the Washington Metropolitan Area. The mission of the CAFB is to feed those who suffer from hunger in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area by acquiring food and distributing it through their network of member agencies; and to educate, empower and enlighten the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition. Each year the CAFB distributes 20 million pounds of food, including six million pounds of fresh produce through over 700 partner agencies.

The Mansion on O, located in Dupont Circle, is noted for eccentric interior styling which includes hidden doors, secret passages, and rooms. Sounds fun, right?  The four-story historic building is over 30,000 square feet and contains 100 rooms including guest rooms, a private Social club, the O Street Museum Foundation, and a conference center.  Oasis has reserved the exclusive second floor of the mansion which has seven themed rooms: The Gallery, The Russian Room, Candle Room, Tiffany Room, Music Room, Ballroom, and secret VIP only access Speakeasy.

Speaking of the Speakeasy (say that three times fast!), CloudNine is proud to be the Scarlett sponsor of the event, so we’re running the Speakeasy!  Thanks to Oasis for including us!  Peacock sponsors include Compiled, LightSpeed and Practice Aligned.  Plum sponsors (have you figured out the sponsor naming pattern yet?) include Ankura, The CJK Group and H5.

The event runs from 7pm to 10pm on May 16th.  Ticket prices are: $75 per person to get in.  But, if you really want to maximize your experience, $125 per person will include access to the CloudNine Speakeasy, where drinks will be available and a lot of fun will be had.  And, you’ll actually get to be a character in the event (no worries, you won’t have to perform).  Trust me, you want to join us in the Speakeasy, that’s where the most fun will be!  Click here for more information and to purchase your tickets.  Remember, it’s for a great cause.

So, what do you think?  Are you going to be in DC on May 16?  If so, come join us!  If not, come to DC and then join us!  It will be epic.  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
