DiveHope Eleventh Year
Dive Community Raises Money for Cancer Patients; DiveHope2019
DiveHope is an all-volunteer group that meets annually for scuba diving, BBQ, raffles and auctions. All funds raised by the event support individuals who are undergoing treatment for cancer.
“This year we will be bringing in some new activities and raffle events to celebrate the efforts of our donor participants,” says Brian Miller the event organizer. “Our treasure hunters may remember the search for Mr. Potato Head. He’ll be back somewhere in the water to be found!”
Each year DiveHope raises enough money to support 10-15 individuals undergoing cancer care, in the form of grants for services and assistance that are not always covered by insurance.
Under a tent supplied by Patrix Heschel of Patrix Scubaand 4th Element, will be a social media photo booth, a display of donated items from the worldwide diving community, and exhibits from local retailers and travel companies.
In addition to the contributions from 4th Element other major contributors are Aqua Lung America. Their local representative Landen Stiverson has organized local retailers to attend and contribute raffle and auction items for the event.
Deep Blue Adventures, a wholesale scuba diving and adventure travel company, organizes resort and Liveaboard vessels for donations for the raffle. “The travel community in scuba diving is very supportive of our efforts and are very willing to give to help others,” says Cheryl Patterson, Deep Blue Adventures founder.
Volunteers from local businesses like the Microsoft Storein Cleveland and Aqua Hut Internationalprepare our BBQ and this year are cooking up something special for as many as 300 participants who arrive for the event each year.
The day often ends around a camp fire or over a beer at Kate & Al’sthe local pizza joint in Gibsonburg,” says Miller. “Come out to the event or donate online. We are happy to have divers and non-divers!”
Donations for the event are $20, payable at the door. Auction and raffle items are extra charge. Advanced registrationhelps to keep the lines to a minimum. Additional donations for those not attending may go directly to the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohioto donate.
