Beebe Ball Announces Ticket Sales and Partnerships with Local Groups
Tickets are now available for the Beebe Medical Foundation's 22nd Annual Beebe Ball, A Royal Evening, to take place Saturday, November 7, 2009, at their new location at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center in downtown Rehoboth Beach. This year, in collaboration with various local groups, the Ball Committee seeks to raise money for the renovation of the Beebe Medical Center's Women's Health Pavilion to accommodate the growing demand for high quality health care. The Pavilion serves women and newborn babies and is designed for labor, deliver, recover, and postpartum care.
Online bidding is a new feature that has been added so that all can participate in the Silent Auction and support Beebe even if one cannot attend the event in person. Visit the Beebe Medical Foundation website (www.beebemedicalfoundation.org) and link to the bidding site to view items being offered.
Anticipation of transforming the Convention Center into a medieval castle and bringing the event to downtown Rehoboth Beach has gained strong support around the community. Local businesses, both renewed and new, will be charged with the exciting task of elaborately designing a table using this year's theme of A Royal Evening.
The enthusiasm for regally decorating the Convention Center has spilled into the classrooms of Rehoboth Elementary School and Southern Delaware School of the Arts, where classes and art departments will assist in designing their respective tables.
Entertainment will abound for the evening. Clear Space Productions will once again perform with a unique custom medley just for this special event. Signorella and His Band will also provide the music for dancing during and after dinner.
A nine-day Royal Caribbean cruise for two, setting sail on April 15, 2010 to Bermuda and Bahamas will also be raffled off. Generously underwritten by Mark and Maryann Ronald and Ocean Travel, only 400 raffle chances are available for $25 per ticket with no limit to how many can be purchased.
For ticket reservations or for more information about the event, please call the Foundation at (302) 644-2900. Beebe Medical Foundation was established in 1989 with the sole mission to raise philanthropic support for Beebe Medical Center. The Foundation is located at 902 Savannah Road, Lewes DE 19958.
