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, to be held from 6 to 10:30 p.m., Saturday, June 8, aboard a docked ferry at the Lewes terminal.
This year, the event will continue its tradition of supporting Beebe’s emergency department, and funds will also 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 for 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 ferry 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.
“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, ferry superintendent of food and 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.”
