Dive Hope Fundraiser

The Annual Fundraiser Event You Don’t Want To Miss!

DiveHope conducts this event raising donations for breast cancer patients each year, at WhiteStar State Park in Gibsonburg, OH. Because of the social restrictions of the Corona Virus and because of the effects on travel the 2020 DiveHope will not be held in person. A virtual event is being considered.

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.

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.

Volunteers Make It Happen

Under a tent supplied by Patrix Heschel of Patrix Scuba and 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.

“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!”

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 Store in Cleveland and Aqua Hut International prepare 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’s the 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 registration helps to keep the lines to a minimum. Additional donations for those not attending may go directly to the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio to donate.
