Casey's Partner's with Delaware County Regional Cancer Center
Successful Events as Casey’s Partners with Delaware County Regional Cancer Center
Since opening in 1987, Casey's Restaurant & Saloon has been a landmark in Drexel Hill and a gathering place for great meals and local entertainment. Casey’s Restaurant has partnered with Delaware County Regional Cancer Center (DCRCC) in October and November to raise money for breast cancer services.
Every Thursday evening in October, Casey’s donated 10 percent of all food and drinks purchased on the restaurant side to the DRCC. Cancer center staff provided information on breast health, cancer programs, mammogram appointments and more.
In November, Casey’s patrons and their families are invited to a special “Think Pink” mammogram event at Delaware County Memorial Hospital’s Women’s Diagnostic Center on Monday, Nov. 18 from 4:30-7 p.m. Everyone who attends will receive a free gift, and light refreshments will be served.
Information and free heel screenings for osteoporosis will also be available. This event is open to the general public.
Mammograms are paid for through the individual patient’s insurance. DCRCC has programs to help pay for a mammogram for anyone that is uninsured or under-insured and eligible for an annual mammogram.
Registration is required for the “Think Pink” mammogram event; please call 610-284-8158.
"Battle on the Boulevard" Soft Game Benefited Crozer Burn Center
On Sunday, Sept. 9, the Milmont and Folsom Fire Departments played a softball game in the first "Battle on the Boulevard" to benefit the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. The game was played at Nall Field on MacDade Blvd. This year the Crozer Burn Center is celebrating its 40th anniversary of specialized burn care in the Delaware Valley, providing care for patients from the tri-state area (see feature article on page 1).
Dan Brees and Chase Frost, two firefighters injured in a 2007 Parkside Borough townhouse fire, threw the first pitch. The proceeds from the food and 50/50 raffle tickets were also donated to the Crozer Burn Center.

Planned Giving Corner
Here are some creative gift planning possibilities to support the Crozer-Chester Foundation (CCF) or the Delco Memorial Foundation (DMF) while ensuring your family’s financial security and making a commitment to the future of our hospitals:
- Appreciated Securities: Contribute your appreciated securities (held over one year) and make a gift that costs you less than the benefit it provides while avoiding capital gains tax.
- Life Insurance: Contribute an existing life insurance policy or purchase a new policy naming the CCF or DMF as beneficiary, and receive current and possible future income tax deductions.
- Bequest: Put a bequest in your will designating a fixed amount of cash, specific property or a share of your estate to the DMF. This is a gift that costs you nothing now and has an estate deduction for the future.
