The Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation presented the Beebe Medical Foundation with an $8,000 donation to support the construction of Beebe Healthcare’s new emergency department near Millville.
The grant was made possible through community support for the Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation’s 14th annual Caribbean Christmas held Dec. 1 at Mango’s in Bethany Beach. This is one of three fundraisers the Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation holds annually.
“We were very excited to select Beebe Healthcare and the River Soccer Club as beneficiaries of last year’s Caribbean Christmas,” said Christina Antonioli, event co-chair.
Formed in 2001 by the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce, the Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation manages and distributes funds to qualified organizations serving the local community. The foundation has given over $168,000 in scholarships to local college-bound students, and nearly $500,000 in grants to local organizations and charities.
“We give priority to organizations and programs that inspire neighborhood improvement, improve social services, enhance educational efforts, and benefit the area and its citizens,” said Laurie McFaul, foundation president. “Beebe Healthcare’s new emergency department was an easy choice.”
Construction is moving along at Beebe’s new South Coastal Health Campus on Route 17 near Millville. The emergency department is expected to open in May 2020. A new cancer center is also under construction at this site and will open next summer.
“We are so very grateful of the Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation’s generous support. As Beebe expands to meet the needs of our growing community, the financial support of organizations and from individuals is truly appreciated,” said David Szumski, major gift officer with Beebe Medical Foundation.
