Norwalk, CT, September 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Norwalk Seaport Association is hosting an evening of fun, food and mystery, with all proceeds benefiting the Sheffield Island lighthouse. Come enjoy appetizers and dinner, while you and your table mates solve this exciting and entertaining mystery.
“It’s great fun to stage this murder mystery in support of our ongoing efforts to demystify the historic beauty and magnificence of our Sheffield Island lighthouse,” said Tom Shrum, president of the non-profit, volunteer-run NSA. “There’s no better way for southern Connecticut residents to show our pride in our local maritime heritage.”
This is the second event this year to benefit the lighthouse. In March, a sold-out crowd at NSA’s Light Keeper’s Gala collectively donated a record $49,000 for the environmental organization’s stewardship of the lighthouse.
Reservations to the murder mystery are required. Tickets are $75 per person for Seaport Association members and $85 for non-members, and can be purchased online at www.seaport.org.
Murder mystery dinner, “Double Trouble,” to benefit Historic Sheffield Island Lighthouse; 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct 21st, at Norwalk Inn & Conference Center.
