After last year’s sell-out event of 3,200 people, we have worked hard to logistically be able to increase our attendance in 2022 to a planned sell-out of 3,500! All the funds raised through Dewey Goes Pink go to support our local Sussex County Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s (DBCC) mission to “empower our community by raising awareness of breast health issues through outreach, education, and support services, in order to facilitate the early detection and treatment of breast cancer.”
Dewey Goes Pink has grown into a day that is very special to so many folks each in their own way. For their own loved-one, their own friends, or their own family members. It’s rewarding to all involved to facilitate such a great day, but it’s all of you who attend that make it so memorable and special for all.
We are calling this year the Million Dollar Year! With our ten-year total at $963,000 raised and donated to our local DBCC…this year we are sure to blow past that milestone amount of a Million Dollars. Each year this event has grown with 2021’s Dewey Goes Pink raising/donating a total of $235,000 to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.
The impact we have made on the community is indescribable – and we could not have helped our local community without your support. This event is special to each and everyone in their own way. We invite you to join us to remember, honor and enjoy celebrating life with friends and family.
What makes this event truly special is what we do best here in Dewey Beach…the Party! The race kicks off promptly at 11am, with a delicious spread served by Bethany Blues BBQ following the race, live music, and plenty of refreshing cold beer, seltzers and Pink Grapefruit Crushes! The Starboard takes over the streets of Dewey and host thousands for an afternoon of hugs, tears, smiles, and so much fun with music from Kristen & The Noise, then Bryen Oboyle of Mr. Greengenes. Its going to be another terrific Saturday afternoon in Dewey Beach.
Thank you for your generosity in making this event such a success for all involved. See you in PINK on October 8th!
