Enjoy Mexican food and a folk concert all in the name of charity on Sunday, March 9 at 5 p.m.

Round Hill Community Church will host a Food and Folk fund-raiser to benefit Simply Smiles, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building bright futures for impoverished children on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota and in Oaxaca, Mexico.

The event will feature an authentic Mexican buffet prepared by Gabriela Chávez Hernández. Ms. Hernandez  grew up in Oaxaca, and became the first recipient of a Simply Smiles college scholarship to study in the U.S. She recently earned her associate’s degree in business at Norwalk Community College and is currently completing her bachelor’s degree at Sacred Heart University.

The meal will be followed by a folk concert given by Kristen Graves, the 2013-2014 Connecticut State Troubadour who is a folk/pop singer and songwriter. She has been writing and performing her own songs since 2000, and has toured nationally since 2002.

Simply Smiles Founder and President Bryan Nurnberger will give a presentation on the organization’s work. Round Hill Community Church is planning to visit South Dakota this summer to work on the Reservation. If you are interested in being part of the group or for more information, visit Roundhillcommunitychurch.org or call 203-869-1091.

Tickets for the Food and Folk event are $25 and can be purchased by calling 203-869-1091. All proceeds benefit Simply Smiles. Round Hill Community House is located at 397 Round Hill Road.
