Jeep donation to raise funds for Tunnell Cancer Center

The Beebe Medical Foundation announced this week that it will hold a new fundraising raffle, for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler donated by Megee Motors of Georgetown. All the proceeds from the Jeep raffle will benefit Beebe Healthcare’s Tunnell Cancer Center, located at the Beebe Health Campus on John J. Williams Highway (Route 24) in Rehoboth Beach.

Tickets cost $10 each, or $50 for six or $100 for a dozen. Tickets are available Monday through Friday at the Beebe Medical Foundation on 902 Savannah Road, or by calling (302) 644-2900, and at Megee Motors in Georgetown. The drawing will be Sunday, Jan. 3, 2016.

“What a wonderful and exciting gift the Tunnell Cancer has received from Terry and Vanessa Megee,” said Tom Protack, director of Development for the Beebe Medical Foundation. “Every family has been touched by cancer in some way, and buying raffle tickets is a fun and easy way for everyone to support our local, award-winning Tunnell Cancer Center.”

Terry Megee was recently appointed to the Board of Directors of Beebe Healthcare.

“Vanessa and my family are thrilled to partner with Beebe,” he said. “It is amazing to see how fast Sussex County has grown since 1948, when my Dad started our car dealership, and Beebe has equally kept up with the growth by meeting the needs of one of the fastest-growing counties in the country. Our hope is that everyone will try a chance at winning a new ride, while supporting our local cancer center.”

The Jeep will be appearing at more than 18 community events in Sussex County through the end of December. To volunteer to help sell tickets or request the Jeep to be at a community event, contact the Beebe Medical Foundation at (302) 644-2900.
