Honoring Richard "Bo" Dietl

Tinton Falls, NJ - Beauty Ball 2015 brings our community together to support families fighting cancer.  The proceeds of this event are used to provide direct monetary grants and services to families to help offset the astronomical costs faced during cancer treatment.  We also provide meals, housecleaning, transportation to treatment, childcare, and many other ancillary costs associated with a cancer diagnosis.

Beauty Ball 2015 will take place on Saturday, March 14th at 6:30 pm at the Robert J Collins Arena, on the Lincroft campus of Brookdale Community College.  This year’s event will honor Richard “Bo” Dietl for his tireless efforts in the community and generosity to numerous charities.  Lauren Comacho will receive the 2015 Courage Award and Connor Phelps will be presented with the Peter Kriss Man of Courage Award for 2015.  In 2013 Peter Kriss, founding member of KISS, received the first Man of Courage award.

For the past few years, Mr. Dietl has supported The Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care and raised a tremendous amount of money at Beauty Ball through his generosity. “We are proud to have him as our honoree for 2015. His support has allowed us to continue to serve our mission to families fighting cancer,” Carla Scarabino, Co-Founder & Trustee for The Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care.
