Painting fundraiser to benefit CURE Childhood Cancer

Caring Canvases art ministry will host its second anniversary celebration at 2 p.m. Sunday at Holy Redeemer Catholic School in Johns Creek.

All proceeds from the $25 ticket price will be donated to CURE Childhood Cancer, a non-profit cancer research foundation.

Kennedy Cobble, a four time childhood cancer survivor, will be the guest speaker. A special tribute is planned to honor the memory of Sam Robb, a Holy Redeemer alumni. Both the Cobble and Robb families work to create awareness and raise funds for children battling cancer through CURE in the Atlanta area.

Artists will be “Painting it Forward’ by creating inspirational canvases, many of which will be donated to children battling cancer in the Atlanta area or to a friend or family member.

Caring Canvases is a ministry of Joy to the WORD Inspirational Art & Calligraphy, founded by Eileen Sirica Cardillo in 2012 after struggling to find her purpose and a way to use her creative yearnings to help others.

More than 60 artists signed are expected, Cardillo said.
