The 26th Annual Beebe Ball was held Nov. 2 at Rehoboth Beach Convention Center celebrating “The Greatest Ball on Earth” with the center decorated as a Big Top Circus Tent. The sold out event raised funds for the Beebe Healthcare’s Nursing Education Campaign to complete the expansion of the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing.

The event featured clowns, a stilt walker, jugglers and other circus performers along with the usual live and silent auctions, live music and the popular table decoration competition.
