Natalia's Cafe in downtown Camas is hosting a carnival fundraiser from noon to 5:30 p.m., with a silent auction until 7 p.m., today to support Camden, who was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, and his family.

A carnival and silent auction, sponsored by the Downtown Camas Association, to support a Camas family is drawing hundreds to downtown Camas this afternoon.

Natalia’s Cafe is hosting the “Love for the Lintons” fundraiser to support Camden Linton, a Camas child recently diagnosed with an inoperable and aggressive brain tumor, and his family, which includes two siblings, Kaden and Kennedy, as well as mom, Erin, a teacher-librarian at Grass Valley Elementary School and dad, Jeff, an employee at the Camas paper mill.

Dozens of downtown Camas businesses contributed to the carnival and silent auction, which runs today until 5:30 p.m. (carnival) and 7 p.m. (silent auction). There is a suggested donation of $10 for the children’s carnival. All donations go directly to the Linton family.

Among the silent auction items up for bid: private lunch at Natalia’s for 20; a downtown Camas shopping spree; a one-hour massage; a boating party for up to 14 people; tutoring for an elementary aged child; wine; quilts; gift cards; jewelry; teeth whitening; and dozens of themed baskets.

Natalia’s Cafe is located at 437 N.E. Fourth Ave., in downtown Camas.
