The new Beebe Breakfasts event series offers a lively, one-hour gathering aimed at introducing Beebe Healthcare’s expansion plans to community members who are interested in supporting the healthcare system. The two most recent breakfasts saw almost 200 attendees, and five joined the Beebe Medical Foundation’s 1916 Club, which brings the total membership over 250.
The hospital’s leadership giving club members celebrate Beebe’s founding year by donating $1,916 or more annually to Beebe Medical Foundation. Current 1916 Club members hosted the breakfast, and invited friends and family to learn more about Beebe’s pursuit of creating the Next Generation of Care.
Captains for the Beebe Breakfast in Rehoboth were Benedette Cooper, Kevin and Ellen Todd, Everett and Tammy Toomey, and Bill Wagamon. Captains for the breakfast in Bethany were Lisa Condon, Jack and Joan Gordon, Jim and Maureen Hurst, Lynn Kokjohn, Jay and Linda Middleton, and Ann Raskauskas.
Attendees heard from Rick Schaffner, interim CEO, executive vice president and COO; Judy Aliquo, CEO and president of the Beebe Medical Foundation; Tom Protack, vice president of development, Beebe Medical Foundation; and the co-chairs of the I Believe in Beebe campaign, Terry and Vanessa Megee of Megee Motors, and Mike and Kelli Meoli of the Meoli Companies.
