Marnie Custom Properties Redirects Beebe Bash Sponsorship to COVID-19 Relief Fund

Beebe Medical Foundation Cancels Fundraising Events Due to Pandemic 


Out of an abundance of caution, adhering to the Center for Disease Control guidelines for large gatherings, and realizing our local business sponsors are struggling financially during this time of crisis, the Beebe Medical Foundation has decided to cancel five out of its seven upcoming major fundraising events.

All of these events support Beebe Healthcare and were scheduled for April through June. 

This includes the biggest kickoff event of the summer season, the Beebe Bash. This event provides vital support for Beebe’s Emergency Department. With this in mind, and Beebe’s critical need for help at this time, Marnie Oursler, founder of Marnie Custom Properties in Bethany Beach, redirected her company’s $10,000 Platinum Sponsorship for the Bash to the COVID-19 Relief Fund. 

This fund is supporting Beebe’s emergent needs as it faces the surge of COVID-19 patients, paying for protective equipment for caregivers and testing for the community. 

“What an amazing gesture of Marnie and her great team,” said Tom Protack, President, Beebe Medical Foundation. “We have canceled so many events that raise funds for our cancer center and other departments.  We are grateful for her support in our time of need. The Foundation looks forward to the day when we can gather with our friends and donors once this pandemic passes.”

One new event, the Beebe Brunch, created to support the new South Coastal Health Campus near Millville and three well-known golf tournaments – Baywood Golf Classic and Ruddo Golf Classic, both supporting Beebe’s oncology services, and Progress for Prostate which supports Beebe’s Center Robotic Surgery and Men’s Health – have all been canceled. 

As a community-based, not-for-profit healthcare system, Beebe Healthcare depends on the generous support of individuals, local businesses, corporations and private foundations.  Please contact Beebe Medical Foundation to make a gift or to donate to Beebe’s COVID-19 Relief Fund. Donations can be made online: or by calling 302-644-2900.
