Worthy cause

A fundraiser to benefit a  3-year-old boy with metachromatic leukadystrophy will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday at Camp Harmony, 1414 Plank Road, Hooversville.

 The rare and serious disorder affects the protective coverings around nerve fibers, and there is no cure.

The fundraiser is being held by Jen Saap, a stranger to the family who felt the need to help.

There will be Bible trivia games, a bake sale and other food items and a Chinese-style auction with gift baskets, jewelry, gift certificates and miscellaneous items donated by local companies and individuals.

Contemporary rock and praise band Calvary Cross will donate a live concert from 4 to 6:30 p.m.

Refreshments will be served. Donations, gifts for the auction, baked goods and food items of all kind will be accepted before and during the event.

Information: 536-0412.

Paper painting

“Explore the Limitless Possibilities of Alcohol Ink Painting” will be presented at the Second Sunday Antique Boutique from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday at Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center, 411 Third Ave. in the Cambria City section of Johnstown.

The free workshop will feature the possibilities of alcohol ink painting, which can be used on acetate, plastic, vinyl and glossy paper.

The inks flow and blend, creating intense and glowing colors and complementing hues and tints.

 Participants will create a marbled paper, which can be used for scrapbooking, cardmaking and gift tags.

 No painting experience is needed.

Information: 536-5399.
