JOHNSTOWN - Parishioners of the Saint Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church in Johnstown are getting set to host the crown prince and princess of Serbia.

Crown Prince Alexander and Princess Katherine are arriving in the United States for the first time, and are making a stop in Johnstown.

The trip is part of an effort to raise money and awareness for humanitarian efforts in their country.

The royal couple will attend a dinner at the Frank J. Pasquerilla Conference Center Thursday night.

The event is named “A Night in Serbia.”

It will help raise money for the lifeline humanitarian organization, which provides humanitarian aid to the neediest people of Serbia.

A portion of the proceeds will also go to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center in Windber.
