Our 2021 LBI Summer Soiree was just recently confirmed so we are not having sponsorships or an auction this year but we will be celebrating our long-standing friendship and partnership with the Team from JETTY as we recognize them with our 2021 DDBCF Beacon of Hope Award.

The Jetty Rock Foundation is the non-profit arm of the Jetty brand. This charitable organization was formed in June of 2013 as a direct result of Jetty’s massive Sandy Relief efforts. The approved 501(C)3 Charitable Organization allows the Jetty brand to continue to be a vehicle for fundraising by using its design, screen printing, and event prowess while providing a formidable channel to get direct aid to those in need. Jetty is a Certified B Corp with CMO Cory Higgins recently being appointed an advisory board member to the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association.

The partnership between David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation and JETTY kicked off at the 2011 Coquina Jam. Jeremy DeFilippis, CEO from Jetty and longtime friend of David Caldarella, was one of the first Board members for DDBCF.

“I’ve known Jeremy for 25+ years now and am so thankful for his support during my cancer battle more than he will ever know. JETTY has played an integral role in supporting DDBCF over the past 10+ years. I will never forget Coquina 2011 and the positive impact it had on DDBCF. I am so grateful for their continued support and partnership and it is an honor to present JETTY as the recipient of our 4th Beacon of Hope Award at this year’s Summer Soiree.” -David Caldarella

We are thrilled to announce that the Inaugural LBI Summer Soiree  presented by D. Finelli Construction is SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone who has reserved their spot for “Boardwalk Nights” at the Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club – if you’ve missed this opportunity but would still like to support our mission as A Beacon Of Hope, please visit bit.ly/DonateDDBCF.


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!
