Beebe Medical Foundation raises $44K through Holiday of Life program
LEWES – The annual Holiday of Life program was more successful than ever this 2020 holiday season, providing a meaningful way for the community to give a gift to Beebe Healthcare in honor of or in memory of someone special.
The program is designed as a charitable initiative to support Beebe Healthcare and in particular, its Women’s Health Services and Oncology Services at the Tunnell Cancer Center and the new South Coastal Cancer Center. Holiday of Life had several levels of giving from $25 to $500 which allowed up to 10 special names to be listed on different colored stars that hung from trees displayed at Beebe’s Lewes, Rehoboth and South Coastal campuses.
“I was inspired to see so many colorful stars this year on all of our trees,” said Tom Protack, President of Beebe Medical Foundation. “As I was reading the names on the stars, I was filled with gratitude for so many donors who faithfully support Beebe. I also was filled with a sense of peace knowing that giving a star in memory of or in honor of a loved one is a wonderful way for our donors to celebrate their lives and legacies.”
Nearly $44,000 was raised and designated almost equally between the Women’s Health and Oncology services at Beebe Healthcare.
“The 2020 holiday season couldn’t have been a more appropriate time to reflect, remember and honor those we love and admire, and those we have lost,” said Kay Young, Executive Director of Development at Beebe Medical Foundation. “We are enormously grateful to each and every donor, especially our generous sponsors including Elizabeth Ann Woznicki, Hertrich Toyota, Bob & Jane Lyons, The Schell Family, Sara Chase-Carlson, and Lyn & Marvin Snyder.”
