BRIDGEPORT — Solve the mystery — and raise some money for a good cause — at the Br. David Darst Center's upcoming Murder Mystery Fundraiser.

The social justice and education center's first ever Murder Mystery Fundraiser will be held Sept. 23 at the center, 2834 S. Normal Ave. Tickets are $50 are are available here.

The event will include a four-course meal and a wine reception as well as an "interactive" dinner performance from the Murder Mystery Company, the group said. Guests are encouraged to dress up in their ballroom garb, like suits/tuxedos, evening wear and Venetian masks.

Proceeds will go to the Darst Center's urban immersion retreats, during which ocal high school and college students spend a weekend exploring topics like justice and oppression. Founded in 2002 by the De LaSalle Christian Brothers, the center works to enlist kids in the fight for justice for those "pushed to the margins of our society," according to the group's website.
