Beebe Medical Foundation and Cape May-Lewes Ferry Partner for Summer’s Biggest Party
The 5th Annual Beebe Beach Bash will support the Emergency Department in Lewes, and the Emergency Department coming to Millville in 2020.
For the fifth straight year, the Beebe Medical Foundation and the Cape May-Lewes Ferry have partnered for one of the summer’s biggest parties – the Beebe Beach Bash.
The Beebe Beach Bash will be held on Saturday, June 8, from 6-10:30 p.m. aboard a docked ferry at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal. This year, the event will continue in its tradition of supporting Beebe’s Emergency Department, and in addition to supporting the Lewes location, funds will also go to support the new Emergency Department being built at the South Coastal Health Campus near Millville. The South Coastal Emergency Department is slated to open in summer 2020.
“Beebe recently announced our largest expansion plans in our history, including adding an additional free-standing Emergency Department and Cancer Center to our new South Coastal Health Campus near Millville,” said Tom Protack, Vice President of Development, Beebe Medical Foundation. “At the same time, we continue to serve the growing numbers of patients who use our Lewes Emergency Department in the summer. This annual event is a great time for the community to come out and support their local not-for-profit healthcare system, while having a really fun evening.”
VIP guests receive reserved parking and will board the ferry at 6 p.m. to enjoy an hour and a half of private entertainment, premium liquor, and hors d’oeuvres in the vessel’s crow’s nest. VIP guests have access to the crow’s nest throughout the evening and will enjoy VIP bars on the main deck.
General boarding guests will enjoy convenient parking in the terminal’s main parking lots and will board the ferry at 7:30 p.m. General boarding guests will enjoy three hours of dancing, dining, auctions, and more. Tickets are on sale now: www.beebemedicalfoundation.org.
“It is an honor to be chosen to once again host the Beebe Medical Foundation’s premier event, the Beebe Beach Bash,” said Shaun O’Brien, the ferry’s Superintendent of Food & Retail. “It is always great to work with partners who have such a significant impact within our community. Beebe Healthcare provides services to our residents and visitors alike and is vital to our community. It’s an evening full of great food, music and libations that you won’t want to miss, not to mention it’s all for a great cause!”
Beebe Medical Foundation was founded in 1989 with the sole mission of raising philanthropic support for Beebe Healthcare. The Foundation was created as a separate entity to support Beebe’s long-range plans. The Foundation is located at 902 Savannah Road, in the former home of Dr. Richard Beebe who, with his brother Dr. James Beebe, founded the hospital in 1916.
Beebe Healthcare is a not-for-profit community healthcare system with a charitable mission to encourage healthy living, prevent illness, and restore optimal health for the people who live in, work in, and visit the communities we serve. Beebe Healthcare has three campuses: the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus, which houses the medical center; the Rehoboth Beach Health Campus; and coming in 2020, the South Coastal Health Campus. Beebe Healthcare offers primary care as well as specialized services in the areas of cardiac and vascular, general surgery, robotic surgery, cancer treatment, women's health, and orthopaedics. Beebe also offers walk-in care, lab, imaging and physical rehabilitation services at several locations throughout Sussex County, in addition to a Home Care program and an adult activities center.
