Beachcomber Gives $27K to N.J. Regional Hospital
Representing Beachcomber Camping Resort in Cape May, N.J., and the Brodesser Family, Tammy Gomez and Kristen Gallego recently presented a check for $27,000 to Joanne Carrocino, president and CEO of Cape Regional Medical Center and Tom Piratzky, executive director of Cape Regional Medical Center Foundation.
The occasion marked the 16th year Beachcomber Camping Resort has held major “fun-raising” events to benefit Cape Regional, according to the Cape May County Herald.
“Each December, Tammy Gomez visits Cape Regional on behalf of the Brodesser Family and presents Beachcomber Camping Resort’s annual gift. The gift is addressed to Cape Regional Medical Center, but the reality is that it is a gift to the Cape May County community, because the services, technology and enhancements made possible by Beachcomber’s hard work and dedication benefits the entire community, both our residents and visitors,” stated Carrocino. “Our deep gratitude goes out to the Brodesser Family and the Beachcomber Campground organization.”
One of Beachcomber’s main “Fun-Raising” events is its “Big Non-Stop Auction Weekend.” Throughout this weekend, campers enjoyed bingo-mania games, rubber ducky regatta, bike raffle and silent and live auctions, plus a fun Chinese auction for the kids. The auction was a huge success.
In addition to the Auction Weekend, Beachcomber holds other events throughout the season including Spring and Summer raffles, Zinging Hot Wing contests and Chili Cook-Offs, The Polar Plunge, Haunted Halloween Hayrides, Carnival Night and the Bingo Mania game, where one lucky seasonal camper can win up to the value of next year’s seasonal site, compliments of the Brodesser family.
Through the efforts of the Beachcomber Campground “fun-raisers” over the years, the Brodesser Family has donated over $245,500 to the hospital and will continue their fund raising efforts for years to come.
