Caring canvases ‘paint it forward’

Art ministry benefits CURE Childhood Cancer



JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Caring Canvases celebrates the third anniversary of “Painting it Forward" for CURE Childhood Cancer with yet another fundraising gathering.
The Sunday, Sept. 11, event will take place at Holy Redeemer Catholic School in Johns Creek from 2 to 5:30 p.m. All proceeds will be donated to CURE Childhood Cancer.
Tickets are $30 (plus processing fee) per person are limited to 100 and advanced registration is required.
Special guest is four-time childhood cancer survivor Kennedy Cobble along with her mother Kathy Cobble as guest speakers this year.
Together, daughter and mother are tireless advocates for childhood cancer awareness, and they will share their courageous journey.
Each person will have an opportunity to create an inspirational piece of art (no experience needed) which may be donated to a child fighting cancer or given to someone in the artist’s own life who might be going through a challenging time.
In addition there will be a silent auction and raffle items, door prizes, giveaways, and light refreshments as part of this special and meaningful day.
Caring Canvases is an outreach ministry of Joy to the WORD, LLC.
“Through Caring Canvases we are privileged to involve the community and take our mission to another level by assisting groups in creating their own inspirational canvases,” said Eileen Cardillo, founder of the ministry.
“The paintings are then donated to the charitable organizations of their choice to help people who might be struggling physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually.”
Approximately 1,000 inspirational pieces of art have been created by individuals of all ages in the Atlanta area in the last three years, and most of our participants have had little to no art experience before.
Some of the organizations which have been the recipients of our Caring Canvases include: The Ronald McDonald House, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, The Drake House, Catholic Charities, Interfaith Outreach Home, St. Brigid Adopt-A-Family program and CURE Childhood Cancer to name just a few.
