To Whom it May Concern,

Whodunnit for hire did an outstanding job to make my wife's 50th b-day party special. My wife loves mysteries, I wanted to surprise her, and this was a perfect choice for entertainment and a great company. We all had a blast. Wendy did so much to make guests involved and feel at ease with no pressure. The show was great- a funny storyline, high quality props and just so much fun. We had my 11 year old son as the "dead body" and he and the guests loved it. Wendy was just so friendly and nice as well -- it was just a terrific, really memorable afternoon with good people--- the company really is customer oriented. We were a small event, but Wendy made us feel like the success of the party was really important to her too. I highly recommend the company! Very professional!

Thanks so much Wendy! Everyone had a blast with the Wild West party theme. Bill and Ben were great, a lot of fun and good at keeping us organized. I had a ton of fun playing Wendy Pigsfly! I can easily do a southern accent, even more so after a cocktail or two, so I played it up being Wendy.

Dear Wendy,

On behalf of the Mattawoman Creek Art Center I would like to thank you for participating in our annual fundraiser "the Great Art Heist" as one of our suspects. You did an awesome job and I know our guests had a great time trying to figure out "whodunnit". It was an entertaining night for all to enjoy with good food and laughter. Not only did you step in at the last-minute to help us out with Sherry's part but you did a wonderful job writing and organizing our event this year.

Our fundraiser raised over $9,300 through ticket sales, bidding, and donations, making it another successful event supporting our art center. This year's funds will be used to pay for a new furnace and other associated operational costs.

It was a join effort of many individuals and the Whodunnit for Hire team coming together to make our event a success. I, along with the Board Members of MCAC, would like to thank you for another successful fundraising event. We are looking forward to working with you and your team next year.

To Whom in May Concern,

What a great experience for my entire team! Everyone talked about how much they enjoyed getting to know colleagues they don’t see all the time. It was a blast! It really did help us with team building, increasing trust, and improving our communication. I would love to have a mystery event with Whodunnit for Hire every year!

To Whom in May Concern,

“It was so much fun!”
“We laughed so hard!”

These were indicative of the comments we heard from the crowd after the Whodunnit for Hire Mystery last October. The club members enjoyed it so much that they asked us to do it again this year…..And who ya gonna call??? Whodunnit for Hire, of course!

Wendy Olenik, the owner is dynamic, creative and surpassed all of our expectations regarding planning our Love Boat Theme, developing materials to promote the event and, finally, providing a wonderful and fun night of entertainment. The actors were enthusiastic, spontaneous, and funny.

We highly recommend Whodunnit for Hire!

To Whom it May Concern,

My leadership team traveled from various locations across the States for our bi-annual business review in Frederick, MD. We were not familiar with the area so we were lucky to find Whodunnit for Hire. I highly recommend Whodunnit for Hire as a team building activity. Wendy has a special talent for matching the characteristics of the "suspects" to the personalities of each member of the team. Everyone enjoyed playing their part (in the costumes supplied by Wendy) and working together to solve the murder mystery.

I highly recommend Whodunnit for Hire for any event. Wendy was an absolute professional in setting up a team building event for our organization. She was super responsive to all my emails and our team had a BLAST! Wendy took care of everything from start to finish... scripting, costumes, awards and fabulous pictures to share.

I would highly recommend Whodunnit for Hire for any event. You won't be disappointed.

Pictures were taken, laughs were had, and everyone had such a great time. I highly recommend Wendy and her team to any group or gathering where they are looking for laughs and teambuilding!

Working for a Management Consulting firm here in the DMV area, I was tasked with hosting an All-Hands team building meeting where all of our teams within our project could interact outside the office. After choosing a location, we looked around at some of the options for entertainment. We went with Whodunnit for Hire as a means to host a murder mystery. Fast forward to the day of event, we arrived to our location and Wendy was all set up with everything ready to go. Certain people were tasked with being the “dead guy" and "suspects" and had to play simple and fun characters to help the teams try to solve the murder. Pictures were taken, laughs were had, and everyone had such a great time. I highly recommend Wendy and her team to any group or gathering where they are looking for laughs and teambuilding!

I thought you guys were wonderful. It was really nice with how patient the 'suspects' were with some of the same questions being asked over and over again. I saw a lot of kindness in your troop and I appreciated it.

You were all really excellent and I will be sure to recommend you for future events. Always feel free to use us as a reference if you ever need one.

I'll pass on your message to Wes (about being a great dead guy), although I'm hesitant because it will only encourage him! LOL!

To whom it may concern,
Wendy Olenik is a true professional that guided our event and exceeded all expectations. Her passion, enthusiasm and confidence made the evening a success. She even provided the props and kept the flow of the evening moving throughout dinner. She was dealing with some high-level execs and brought out their talent (especially during the initial death scene). It was hilarious.

Wendy is a gem who did an amazing job. We are very pleased.

We are still talking, reliving every moment of our fabulous Whodunnit for Hire Mystery Party! You guys were so great. You truly exceeded our expectations. From the moment you arrived, you put my mind at ease. I relaxed and had a great time. So did my entire staff. What a perfect way to add fun, excitement and team spirit to our event. I loved that everyone could choose to participate as much or as little as they wanted. Although, it was difficult not to get caught up in the fun. I haven't laughed so hard in ages. Thank you for a professional, well organized, super creative and spectacularly fun event.

To answer your question, "Would I recommend Whodunnit for Hire"? ...You bet your sweet murder I would. Over and over again!
