Beebe Kicks Off Planning for the 20th Annual Thanksgiving Ball
The 20th Annual Thanksgiving Ball Committee kicked off planning this important event at the Philip Morton Gallery in Rehoboth Beach. Philip Livingston, owner, and Eric Davison, art director, generously donated use of the gallery. More than 30 volunteers from the community came out to sign up for committees and hear about their job duties. Everyone was truly excited to get started with fresh ideas for this year's milestone event.
"Every year I am amazed at the number of people in the community who volunteer their time to this important event," said Chairperson Christine Strauss. "This year's committee brings many new faces and will help us to expand Beebe's reach to communities in southern Sussex County who will benefit from the new South Coastal Campus in Clarksville."
She added "The Thanksgiving Ball has become the premier social occasion of the fall season, annually bringing old friends, new residents, and visitors together for the benefit of Beebe Medical Center."
The Thanksgiving Ball will be held on November 3, 2007, at the Baycenter in Dewey Beach.
This year, all proceeds from the event will benefit the new Beebe South Coastal Health Campus being built on Route 26 in Clarksville.
