St. Benedict’s Shelter is hosting a 1920’s mafia-themed murder mystery dinner next month, with all proceeds being used to help those experiencing homelessness.

The event begins at 6 p.m. on February 25 at Green River Spirits and features a multi-course meal with an “interactive plot-twisted murder mystery.” 

Tickets for the dinner are $65, and guests are welcome to wear their best 1920s garb. A cash bar will also be available. Advanced Cardiology of Owensboro is the title sponsor of the fundraiser.

“Do you think you like solving puzzles or mysteries? Do you think you can solve the crime? You won’t want to miss this event,” said St. Benedict’s Deputy Development Director Connie Hardison.

St. Benedict’s is a temporary refuge for regional individuals experiencing homelessness. The nonprofit provides temporary around-the-clock emergency shelter to 64 men per day and upwards of 500 men annually. 

St. Benedict’s also provides day shelter to 40 women and families daily at an alternative location. 

The shelter also offers 26 beds at four transitional residential homes for men recovering from substance use, veterans, and women with crisis pregnancies. Executive director Harry Pedigo said through each program, they are dedicated to providing a judgment-free Christian atmosphere and access-to-care programs.
