SICA is also planning its annual Artful Affair fundraising event “A Night of HeART and Soul.”

The dinner, dance and auction will take place Sept. 12 at the Pines Evergreen Room in Seymour.

Cost is $50 per person. Reservations must be made ahead of time, by calling SICA at 812-522-2278 or online at soinart.com. Tickets will not be sold at the door.

This year’s Artful Affair will not feature a live auction as it has in the past. There will be a silent auction from 6:30 to 8:15 p.m., and winning bidders will be announced after the close of the auction.

Heavy appetizers and a cash bar will be available at 7 p.m.

The popular local band Enos Road featuring lead singer Fred Booker will perform Motown and classic rock music.
