Crafts fair and carnival fundraiser planned March 2

From page A6 | February 21, 2014 |

The Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair is rolling crafts, jazz, food vendors and a children’s carnival into Central Park on Sunday, March 2. The fair will host more than 30 food and craft vendors and provide a space for guests to dance to the New Harmony Jazz Band.
Vendor Zita Demaree and her daughter Alicia are organizing the children’s carnival as a fundraiser to fight poverty in the Philippines. The entertainment includes a spin-and-win roulette wheel, a monster ring toss, face painting and animal balloons. The Demarees supervise a table where visitors can make friendship bracelets.

Visitors also can take the Creepy Creature Hunt, which follows a trail of clues leading to drawings of monsters from world folklore and a final treasure. Trail trackers will learn about tree spirits and psychopomps and find the true secret of genies — genie wishes come at a steep price. Fees for all fundraising events are collected by suggested donation.

The mother-daughter duo have been running the Angels of Hope, a charitable foundation to combat poverty in the Philippines. Zita is an American born in Cebu, Philippines.

“I’m pleased that we were able to raise more than $1,000 to provide relief for the Haiyan typhoon,” Zita said. In earlier years, funds raised by Angels of Hope provided food, medical and dental care for people in the Philippines.
