N.J Campground Donates $10k For Cancer
David and Maggie Robinson, co-owners of Holly Shores Campground located in Lower Township, N.J., presented a check for $10,000 to Joanne Carrocino, president and CEO of Cape Regional Medical Center, the Cape May County Herald reported,
The donation represents the third payment towards their $50,000 pledge. The donation benefits the Thomas & Claire Brodesser, Jr., Cancer Center Capital Campaign. The pledge is made possible by various fundraising initiatives that are held at Holly Shores Campground throughout the camping season.
“Cape May County has one of the highest cancer rates in the state of New Jersey. In response to these statistics, in 2012 Cape Regional Medical Center purchased the most state-of-the-art radiation therapy technology — the Varian TrueBeam. We now treat prostate cancer in five versus 40 treatments, and some lung cancers in three versus 35 treatments,” said Dr. David Cho, assistant medical director of the cancer center. “Cape Regional Medical Center is the only cancer center in this region with this level of technology and expertise.”
Maggie Robinson said, “On behalf of Holly Shores, Dave and I are happy to present this donation of $10,000 to Cape Regional Medical Center. Thank you for providing the best quality cancer care to our community, Our fun-raisers are becoming more and more popular — our campers are as enthusiastic as we are about supporting our community medical center.”
