Benefit planned for 5-year-old

A benefit is planned for 5-year-old Buckley resident Regan Englehardt.

Englehardt has Dravet Syndrome, also known as severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy, a rare and catastrophic form of epilepsy for which there is no cure. She needs both specialized equipment for her bed and a seizure-alert dog to help her parents respond more quickly to her seizures.

A buffet dinner is scheduled from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 15 at the Buckley Eagles. The cost is $10 per person or $25 for a family, up to four people. A silent and live auction will follow at 8 p.m. A special performance by Aces Up is also scheduled.

Ten percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Dravet Syndrome Foundation to benefit research and a cure.

For information go to or or contact Suzie Engelhardt, 360-761-7160, Kathy Vollmer, 253-307-2198 or Pat Valentine, 360-829-1969.
