Polka dots, sports team logos and watermelons were among the design ideas used in painting pottery pieces that will decorate the 60 tables the Pediatric Cancer Foundation's 2nd Annual Brinner of Hope on Sept. 19 at the A La Carte Event Pavilion.

Foundation volunteers joined pediatric cancer patients, their families and friends Wednesday afternoon at the Color Me Mine paint-your-own pottery studio in Hyde Park to paint the second half of the pieces.

Lea Sellwood, 9, and her mom, Kate, plan to attend this year's Brinner and didn't want to miss the chance to help paint. The two attended last year's Brinner but had to miss the painting because Lea, who was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 7, was in the hospital at the time.

The pottery pieces will be sold at the end of the event.
