Holiday of Life raises $19K for Beebe programs

February 2, 2020

Beebe Medical Foundation’s Holiday of Life program sparkled throughout the 2019 holidays and into the new year, raising more than $19,000 for Women’s and Children’s Health and Oncology patients.

Christmas trees decorated with stars from donors who gave in honor or in memory of a loved one were placed at the Tunnell Cancer Center or at the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus, depending on which department received the donation.

“On behalf of Women’s & Children’s Health, we are grateful to the community for their generous gifts,” said Bridget Buckaloo, MSN, executive director of Women’s & Children’s Health.

Carol Hunt, Oncology Service Line coordinator, said, “Seeing all those colorful stars with all those names of loved ones, and knowing they represented such generous gifts to the Tunnell Cancer Center, was truly inspiring.”

“The Beebe Medical Foundation thanks all its wonderful new and loyal donors to Beebe’s Holiday of Life program, and particularly recognizes Hertrich Toyota for its Gold Sponsorship, and the Mary Jane Lockard, Harrigan and Wells families for their Silver Sponsorships,” said Tom Protack, Beebe Medical Foundation president. “We are deeply grateful to all. Memorial and honorary giving, whether made during the holidays or throughout the year, are beautiful ways of remembering special people while supporting Beebe Healthcare.”
