The Bayhealth Foundation partnered with Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton to host an event in honor donors who have contributed to the Campaign for Bayhealth – Phase III.
The campaign is a capital fundraiser that will primarily support the new health campus in southern Delaware.
Bayhealth Foundation President Lindsay Rhodenbaugh said the event was a way to say thank you and an opportunity to update supporters on the progress and status of the campaign. “It was a party to celebrate donors and express our appreciation,” he said. “We are also grateful for our partnership with Dogfish Head who graciously hosted the celebration.”
Guest speakers updated the attendees on the status of the campaign and plans.
Board member and vice-chair of the Campaign for Bayhealth – Phase III Bill Strickland announced the foundation has commitments of $11.5 million toward the $15 million goal for the campaign.
“This is a significant achievement for the largest fundraising effort that has ever been undertaken by Bayhealth,” he said. “We are grateful to everyone who has been part of attaining this milestone.”
Bobby Fischer, a member of the Bayhealth, Inc. Board and the Campaign for Bayhealth – Phase III Committee, spoke about his passion for Bayhealth and the campaign.
He also thanked the guests for their commitment to the new health campus project and asked them to share their passion with others in southern Delaware.
“Our community has supported the hospital for nearly one-hundred years,” Fischer said. “This $300 million investment by Bayhealth continues the important history of healthcare in our area and will help us add another one-hundred years to this legacy.”
