Delaware Today magazine announces the 2013 Best of Delaware Party beneficiaries: Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay, Variety - The Children’s Charity and Kent County Fund for the Arts. Also, the 2013 grant recipients are the Delaware KIDS Fund and Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.
The party will be held at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino Thursday, July 25. The Best of Delaware Party is one of the most popular events in The First State, drawing over 2,000 guests each year. From dining to services and retail, the party celebrates the best that Delaware has to offer.
More importantly, the Best of Delaware party raises funds for worthy, local causes. Money is raised through ticket sales, sponsorship and a silent auction the night of the party featuring items donated by many of the participants. Proceeds have provided over one million dollars in donations to Delaware charitable organizations to date.
“It means a great deal to us to be able to support nonprofit organizations that do so much for the state of Delaware and the communities in which they serve,” says Robert F. Martinelli, president of Today Media and the Today Media Charitable Foundation.
