Gallo Gives Foundation Donates to CAMPsafe
As part of a pledge to support the community in which they live and work, the management, agents, and staff of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty have formed the Gallo Gives Foundation.
Among the foundation’s donations for the third quarter of 2018, $2,500 was donated in memory of CAMP Rehoboth’s co-founder and Executive Director, Steve Elkins.
The donated funds were specifically earmarked for CAMPsafe—part of CAMP Rehoboth’s Health and Wellness programming. CAMPsafe provides HIV education and outreach, and offers HIV testing and counseling at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center and at five satellite testing facilities in Sussex County.
In addition to HIV testing, CAMP Rehoboth provides testing for sexually transmitted infections, sexual health counseling, outreach, and condom distribution. CAMP Rehoboth’s Health & Wellness Program Director Salvatore Seeley can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information about CAMPsafe.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty is an award-winning, full-service real estate firm that has been serving the resort region since 1979. Visit GoToGallo.com for details.▼

Women’s FEST: April 11-14, 2019
Save the date for the hot entertainment and hilarious comics for Women's FEST 2019. So far, the remarkable musical trio Betty and singer/songwriter Ruthie Foster will headline at the Convention Center, with the audacious young duo Mouths of Babes at the Atlantic Sands.
Special speakers will include Blanche Wiesen Cook, biographer of Eleanor Roosevelt, and historian Marcia Gallo. A book fair all day Friday will have more award-winning authors than ever before.
And don't worry, sports fans—the golf, pickleball, and cornhole games are ON!
The opening dance has outgrown the Atlantic Sands Ballroom, so it will be moved to the Convention Center for 2019, with a huge bar, great music, and a big-time party atmosphere.
Of course, the Ladies 2000 Tea Dance is set for Saturday night at the Convention Center, Olivia Cruise raffle tickets are already on sale, art is being prepared for the awesome long-sleeve t-shirt, and sponsors are coming in like crazy.
And on Sunday morning, the long-standing tradition of Broadwalk on the Boardwalk to fight cancer continues.
Get ready! FEST Passes go on sale in early February! ▼
