After yet another incredible sell-out event of nearly 4,000 people, we are looking forward to the magic of Dewey Goes Pink in 2023! New this year, we have taken our silent auction online so you do not have to be in town to join in on the fun, and you can scroll the prizes in advance of our event! We continue to try and adapt ways to make this event terrific knowing there are alot of folks onsite this beautiful October afternoon.
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 (more like a weekend!) 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 here at The Starboard who are involved to facilitate such a great day, but it’s all of you who attend that make it so memorable and special for all.
The impact we have made on the community is indescribable – and we could not have helped our local community without your support. In 2022, we surpassed the million-dollar mark when we donated $238,000, bringing our total amount donated to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition to $1,201,000.
What makes this event truly special is what we do best here in Dewey Beach…the Party! The race kicks off promptly at 11 am, 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! With the gracious support of our neighbors, The Starboard takes over Saulsbury street to host thousands for an afternoon of hugs, tears, smiles, and so much fun with music from Kristen & The Noise and Bryen O’boyle of Mr. Greengenes. It’s going to be another terrific Saturday afternoon in Dewey Beach.
We invite you to join us to remember, honor and enjoy celebrating life with friends and family.
