Local residents are invited to enjoy an evening of bunco and lasagna to help raise funds for former Davis resident Dina Gardner’s battle against pleomorphic sarcoma. “Bunco for Dina” will run from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Davis Community Church Fellowship Hall, 421 D St. downtown.

Gardner is a Presbyterian minister and spiritual life coach in Marin County. She graduated from Davis High School in 1990 and was ordained at Davis Community Church in 1999.

The daughter of longtime Davis residents Barbara and Bill Greene, she underwent surgery and 33 radiation treatments last year, but needs more medical intervention to fight this rare form of cancer, a news release said.

A $20 donation is suggested for the lasagna dinner followed by bunco, a fast-paced dice game that originated in England during the 18th century.

Those unable to attend the Nov. 3 event may contribute online at http://goo.gl/sFg18 or send a check to the Dina Gardner Medical Fund, c/o First Northern Bank, 434 Second St., Davis, CA 95616 (Tax ID #45-4463850).

Party organizers and supporters include Karen Johnson, Michelle Swanson, Nancy Roe, Pat English, Ginny Cyphers, Vicki Burris, Caren Hill, Joyce Wisner, Sharon Rose, Diane Makley, Gail Dudman, Linda Trout, Carol Barling, Reena Melancon, Debbie Fox, Shelly Piper, Pauline Kubiak and the staff of the Davis Community Church.

For more information or to reserve a seat, contact Karen Johnson at 530-756-6657 or bkjohnson47@sbcglobal.net or Michelle Swanson at 530-758-8078 or tuswans@gmail.com.
