A lasagna dinner to benefit New Milford resident Danny Mayo and his family will take place Saturday, Feb. 7, from 5 to 10 p.m. at the VFW Hall on Avery Road.

Mayo, 34, a recent graduate of the Community Culinary School of Northwest Connecticut, will receive a kidney transplant Feb. 24 from his wife, Christian Munko Mayo, who works at New Milford Hospital.

Surgery will be at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

Dinner offerings will include lasagna, salad and dessert prepared by the culinary school, music by a disc jockey and a cash bar.

Tickets are $20, with proceeds to support the family after surgery, travel expenses and extended child care of Mayo's three children.

Each patron will receive a ticket for a drawing to win prizes.
