Jodi Geving fundraiser Aug. 16 at Hawk’s Nest

A fund raising benefit for Jodi Geving will be hosted Saturday, Aug. 16 from 3-8 p.m. at the Hawk’s Nest establishment on the Purple Hawk Country Club.

A chili feed with all the fixings, raffles, bake sale and silent auction will fill the afternoon. A highlight silent auction item will be a week’s stay on Gull Lake near Bemidji.

A lifelong resident of the area, Jodi married Mark Geving last year. In February 2014, she was diagnosed with stage four small cell lung cancer which also affected her right chest wall and lymph nodes.

“I have had six chemo treatments so far. After my last PET scan, the doctors said my condition was looking very good,” she said.

Jodi works in the home health department at Allina, and her work partners and family members have been busy organizing the Aug. 16 fund raiser to aid the family with paying the treatment costs, added husband Mark. If people are interested in donating to Jodi’s cause but can not make the chili feed, a fund raising account has been set up at MinnCo Credit Union under “Jodi Geving Benefit.”
