Cheektowaga

St. Aloysius Gonzaga Catholic Church is hosting its 70th annual Family Christmas Fair from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday in the parish hall, 157 Cleveland Drive.

There will theme baskets, prize booths and a grand prize drawing with $3,000 in cash prizes. Santa Claus is scheduled to visit from 2 to 4 p.m., and the kitchen is offering a menu that ranges from pizza to pulled pork.

A special raffle will be held to commemorate the event’s 70th anniversary: a framed landscape watercolor painted by Marjorie J. Norton, a well-known local artist who died in 2011. The painting was donated by her husband, Victor, who worships at St. Al’s. Those raffle tickets are $1 each or 3 for $2 and will be sold at the fair.
