Beebe Healthcare and Beebe Medical Foundation are proud to announce that the Derrickson family and Atlantic Theatres’ The Movies at Midway will launch a multi-year fundraising initiative in support of the I Believe in Beebe campaign.
The Movies at Midway will unveil a newly designed, refillable popcorn bucket, and will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each bucket to the construction of Beebe Healthcare’s new Specialty Surgical Hospital at the Rehoboth Beach Health Campus.
The funds raised from the popcorn bucket initiative are in loving memory of the Derrickson family’s sister, Rosemary Burton (Jan. 17, 1955-March 2, 1974). The Derrickson family’s goal is to contribute $500,000 with this five-year effort.
“This is another example of a strong and loyal partnership with a locally owned family business which truly believes and gives locally to make the lives of Sussex County residents better! The Derricksons are lifelong supporters of Beebe and know the importance of giving back to the community which supports their business. It’s truly an extraordinary example of families helping families and neighbors helping neighbors,” shared Judy L. Aliquo, president and CEO of Beebe Medical Foundation. “As moviegoers enjoy their popcorn, they will also enjoy the fact that part of their payment is going to help Beebe create the Next Generation of Care.”
