What’s Happening Today – November 20, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
The 5th annual Gabby Gobble 5k & Kiddie Fun Run takes place on Thanksgiving morning. Gabby Vogel’s brave fight with cancer ended in 2011, and her parents wanted to continue to help other children battling the disease. The Fun Run begins at 9 a.m. at Irish Eyes in Lewes. The 5k race kicks off at 9:30 a.m. Proceeds from the race benefit the Get Well Gabby Foundation.
It was just about this time of year two years ago when a little boy named Enzo sent us the sweetest email, explaining how he was collecting pajamas for kids who needed the warmth during the cold winter months. Enzo Vincent and his mother, Danielle, are back with us today, to tell us about this year’s effort. If you’d like to help Enzo, you can mail new pajamas to the following address:
You may also drop off new pajamas at the following locations:
Absolute Health Chiropractic
Continental Jewelers, Wilmington
DelOne (all locations)
PNC Bank, Dover
The Tile Market of Delaware (all locations)
If you have any questions about the pajama drive, call Danielle at 302-745-4996.
What could be better than a holiday event that offers fashion, fun, food and friends? How about one that goes a long way in saving lives. We’ll learn more about the “Holiday Wrappings” fashion show & luncheon that takes place December 4th. Proceeds from the event benefit cancer research and patient services. We’ll sit down with Chairwoman Dawne Pappas and Volunteer Kim Snyder, to hear more about this exciting event.
We’re approaching a holiday that centers around thankfulness. Most of us will spend the week with loved ones. The team at Vernon Powell believes that’s how the holidays should be spent. 102.5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus explains how Vernon Powell has made it their mission to put family first, and how that will benefit you, as you begin your holiday shopping.
We live in pretty stressful times. That’s why many people are looking for ways to relieve the accumulated tensions that result from life’s demands. Imagine dissolving all that tension into water. Better yet, imagine spending time with loved ones immersed in relaxing warm water. That’s what you’ll get with a home spa, or a hot tub. Lisa recently visited Pools and Spas Unlimited in Milford to learn more about the therapeutic benefits a hot tub can provide.
Think about all of the valuables you have at home – important documents, family heirlooms, jewelry, firearms, and this time of year – expensive gifts. Today, we help you protect those valuables. It’s as easy as investing in a safe, but they come in all shapes and sizes. What do you need? Where do you start? Corey stops by Liberty Safes of Delaware, in Laurel, to get some insight.
We’re playing with pottery! Owner of Zockoll Pottery, Brent Zockoll, stops by to help Jimmy and Sydney make a masterpiece – but we’ll see if they make a mess instead!
