The 11th annual “Class at Baywood” Golf Tournament raises $42,000 for Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center

The 11th Annual “Classic at Baywood” Golf Tournament, held in June at Baywood Greens, raised more than $42,000 for Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center.  This popular event raises funds to further the Cancer Center’s mission of providing hope and wellness to its patients.

The event’s lead sponsors, Baywood Greens and Onix Group, each donated $10,000 to fund the event. Beebe medical oncologist Dr. Srihari Peri was the honorary chairman and spoke about how Beebe’s cancer program grew from a small office on Savannah Road in Lewes to the large Tunnell Cancer Center at the Beebe Health Campus in Rehoboth Beach that it is today. 

“We want to thank our two sponsors, Baywood Greens and Onix Group, for being so generous, as well as all those who participated in this popular, fundraising event,” said Tom Protack, Vice President of Development at Beebe Medical Foundation. “With our growing population, Tunnell Cancer Center needs to continue to expand its services, and we depend on those in the communities that we serve for support.”
