Party with a PURPOSE, Little Pink Houses of Hope, Fundraising Event, Thursday, March 26th, 6-8 p.m., NorthEast Seafood Kitchen, Ocean View, Delaware, Let’s Fill Those Seats!!


Everything looked so normal.  Just like any other get together at the beach.  Going fishing!!  Summertime, a time to relax and not to care about a thing…..If it only were that easy.  Just for one week it was for the families that came to Bethany Beach, Delaware, for this retreat last year.  The women had breast cancer and the journey to the beach was to get away and have fun.

The organization is called Little Pink Houses of Hope founded by Jeanine Patten-Coble.  Website?  The organizers in Bethany Beach were Annie Raskauskas and Stacy Shepps.  Annie and Stacy were backed up by the communities of the Delaware Beaches.  Big hearts in Southern Delaware.


When these families arrived at the beach their accommodations were all donated by area residents.  Besides their accommodations, they had barbecues, crab feasts, dinners, deep sea fishing…the community went all out.  Everything for them was free of charge.  Breast cancer like many chronic diaseases not only afflicts the person but the whole family.

When they arrived the families did not know one another.  When they left they were a united front and a very powerful and emotional thing to see.  The following photos are of the last day together having fun….fishing, a picnic, a pig roast, a birthday celebration, games on the beach…meet The Little Pinks and their families.




In the evening…pig roast, birthday celebration and games on the beach.





Then, it was time to say so long.


Party with a PURPOSE will take place on Thursday, March 26th from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at NorthEast Seafood Kitchen located at 29 Atlantic Avenue (Rt. 26) in Ocean View, Delaware.  Just a few miles west of Bethany Beach.  Tickets ar $40 and will include light fare, cash bar, silent auction and 50/50.  The purpose is to raise funds and awareness for Little Pink Houses of Hope.  For tickets and info., please call 302-245-2154 or 302-537-9700.  Living in Hope…Let’s Fill those Seats!!

Bethany Beach Breast Cancer 5K Fun Run & 3K Fun Walk, Bethany Beach, Delaware Beaches, Mother’s Day Week-End, Saturday, May 8th


Fun Run and Fun Walk for Breast Cancer in Bethany Beach

Fun Run and Fun Walk for Breast Cancer in Bethany Beach

I should not even have to mention the word Breast Cancer.  All of us have been touched in one way or another with this devastating disease.  I have plenty of friends in the past years diagnosed and courageously fought breast cancer.

This event is getting more popular every year.  I had never attended any of them.  But, last year I did.  To tell you the truth, it was emotional to see all of the people there congregating for one purpose only.  To, help raise funds to benefit all of those who help fight the battle against breast cancer every single day.

It was fun also.  Some runners and walkers were celebrating remissions, others doing their thing in memory of loved ones.  Family, friends, pets, kids in strollers, they came out so I hope you do too on Saturday, May 8th.

Being in Bethany Beach this time of the year is a real treat.  No parking meters, not crowded and the weather is usually pretty nice.  What can I further say?  Here is the info:


Meet at the Bethany Beach Band Stand at the Beach, at 9:00 a.m., rain or shine!!!

You may sign up to donate, volunteer, or register on-line at:  The website is great.  In it you will see what the Run/Walk is all about, pictures, where are the donations going, etc. etc.
