The Cosimano and Caldarella families both grew up in north jersey but spent every summer and most off-season weekends together on Long Beach Island. The Cosimano’s are family to Co-Founder David Caldarella. As many of you know, Frank A. Cosimano passed away on August 7, 2011 from Pancreatic cancer. Frank loved his wife Angela, daughter Kim son Jason, daughter-in-law Dorothy, his 6 grand kids, friends, animals, golf and most importantly helping others. He was passionate about giving back to individuals and charities. One charity that was very close to Frank and remains close to his family is DDBCF. Please join us as we honor and remember this great man at The 3rd Annual Frank A. Cosimano Memorial Golf Classic on Monday June 4th.

We are excited to bring the Inaugural LBI Summer Soiree “Boardwalk Nights” (formerly Island Gala) to the Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club on Friday August 10, 2018 to benefit David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation(DDBCF).
The LBI Summer Soiree “Boardwalk Nights” is brought to you by our friends, community partners and Title Sponsors at D. Finelli Construction. Dave Finelli was recently welcomed to DDBCF’s Volunteer Advisory Board, and according to both Dave and his wife Laurie Finelli, their faith in God is the cornerstone of everything in their lives. Dave and Laurie have shared that they feel blessed to be able to support organizations such as DDBCF, Parker’s Army, Hope for Liberia, Fighting Children’s Cancer Foundation and Lighthouse Christian Academy.
We also want to warmly welcome and extend our sincere thanks to The Jordan Family for their generous support of the Soiree. Bill and Kirsten Jordan were introduced to DDBCF a few years ago at the Island Gala by the Reynolds Family and since that initial meeting have been unwavering in their support for our families battling cancer.
We return to the Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club for the 6th year of this re-branded event and are so excited that Jaimee Hughes Boyle and Brittany Hughes Solon were also recently welcomed to DDBCF’s Volunteer Advisory Board. The Hughes Family supports DDBCF at multiple events throughout the year and have done so since our first year of existence. We are grateful for their steadfast and generous support!
