Beebe Exceeds Campaign Goal at $45 Million

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del.- The Beebe Medical Foundation announced Thursday it has raised more than $45 million for its "I Believe in Beebe" campaign-- over $10 million over its goal.

"It's historic. It's really earth-shattering for Sussex County," said Vice President of Development Tom Protack. "That really means that people are believing in Beebe, investing in Beebe, and there's no signs of it slowing down."

Beebe originally aimed to raise $34 million for its over $200 million expansion project that will include new facilities in the South Coastal region such as a new cancer center and freestanding emergency centers. Outgoing Beebe Medical Foundation President Judy Aliquo called Thursday night's announcement inspiring.

"It's so inspiring to want to see them give back and say thank you and want to honor the people that are there for them 24/7, at their toughest moments in life," she says. "So for me its been so wonderful to celebrate our Beebe heroes and celebrate our donors who just care so much deeply about investing in us."
