Why We Are Hosting Our 2nd Annual Beach Ball

The Frances Pope Memorial Foundation is a group of caring friends who have joined together to offer financial and emotional support to families whose child is facing a catastrophic diagnosis. Cancer effects the whole family; both emotionally and financially. We understand that additional costs associated with a diagnosis are not budgeted for and often are not covered by insurance. Our mission at the Frances Pope Foundation is to take care of those expenses so families can focus on what’s most important: their child’s recovery. 


Meet Brandon Dillon. Your generosity got Brandon through a very long 2 years of grueling chemotherapy. You made the Dillons’ lives a little easier – you covered the gas, the tolls, parking and a meal or two while mom waited by Brandon’s bedside both day and night. As the picture says – “My Last Day of Chemo, It Was Tough but I’m Tougher”.

Brandon is CANCER FREE!!

The reason we can be there for Brandon, his family, and all our other families, is thanks to YOU. And to keep our mission going, I am proud to invite you to the Frances Pope Memorial Foundation’s Second Annual Beach Ball at the Rockaway Hotel, Thursday July 14, 2022. Once again, the HELL OR HIGH WATER Band will command the stage, of course there will be great auction prizes and a 50/50 Beach Ball Raffle. All prizes will be drawn the night of the Beach Ball. 


Thanks to your generosity over the years we have been able to respond to the needs of every family who has expressed a need. We look forward to another wonderful Beach Ball and the most important component of the evening is YOU and all your friends.
