Roxbury Congregational Church will hold Art for A Cause, a dinner and auction, Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. in Southbury.

The event, to be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, will benefit Simply Smiles, a Westport-based charity that seeks to help impoverished children in the jungles of southern Mexico and on the Cheyenne River Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

Each year numerous groups from Connecticut, including people from the Greater New Milford area, travel to these locations and spend a week working on homes, schools and providing activities for the children of the village in which they work.

Tickets are $50. For more information, call Charlie Meade at 203-775-1434 or the church office at 860-355-1978.
