The duo of Jen Carroll and Robyn Rosenfeld-Aburrow will again co-chair Beebe Medical Foundation’s biggest party of the summer: the 5th Annual Beebe Beach Bash.

This year’s Bash has a Polynesian theme. The evening will feature luau-style food, performers, dancing, music by The Funsters, a live auction and more.

“We are looking forward to bringing the Polynesian theme to life onboard the ferry,” Carroll said. “We have a lot of exciting things planned, including luau-type food, Polynesian performers and great auction items. We even have a few surprises up our sleeves.”

The Beebe Beach Bash will be held on Saturday, June 8, from 6 to 10:30 p.m. aboard a docked ferry at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal. This year, the event will continue in its tradition of supporting Beebe’s Emergency Department, and in addition to supporting the Lewes location, funds will also go to support the new Emergency Department being built at the South Coastal Health Campus near Millville. The South Coastal Emergency Department is slated to open in the summer of 2020.

“Beebe recently announced our largest expansion plans in our history, including adding an additional freestanding Emergency Department and Cancer Center to our new South Coastal Health Campus near Millville,” said Tom Protack, vice president of development for the Beebe Medical Foundation. “At the same time, we continue to serve the growing numbers of patients who use our Lewes Emergency Department in the summer.

“This annual event is a great time for the community to come out and support their local not-for-profit healthcare system, while having a really fun evening.”

VIP guests receive reserved parking and will board the ferry at 6 p.m. to enjoy an hour and a half of private entertainment, premium liquor and hors d’oeuvres in the vessel’s crow’s nest. VIP guests have access to the crow’s nest throughout the evening and can also enjoy VIP bars on the main deck.

General-boarding guests can utilize parking in the terminal’s main parking lots and will board the ferry at 7:30 p.m. General-boarding guests will be able to enjoy three hours of dancing, dining, auctions and more. Tickets are on sale now at www.beebemedicalfoundation.org.

“We are so fortunate to have many generous, community-minded individuals and businesses who support Beebe and make the Bash such a success each year,” said Rosenfeld-Aburrow. “We thank all of our generous sponsors and local businesses who will make this year’s Bash the best ever!”
