After yet another incredible sell-out event of over 4,400 people, we are looking forward to the magic of Dewey Goes Pink in 2024! We will again open registration for our 5K Walk/Race and 1 Mile Fun Walk on August 1st – so set your alarm as we are sure to sell out in record time.
We are excited to also open our online auction on August 1st! We will continue to add items up until the day of the race so be sure to check back. The best part about our online auction is 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 a lot 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 and increasing access to care through outreach, education, and support services, to facilitate early detection and treatment of breast cancer.”
The impact we have made on the community is indescribable – and we could not continue to help our local community without your support. In 2023, we donated $340,000 to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (almost $100,000 more than any other year!) bringing our 12-year donation total to over $1,500,000!
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 ones, their own friends, or their own family members. It’s rewarding to all here at The Starboard who are involved in facilitating such a great day, but it’s all of you who attend that make it so memorable and special for all.
What makes this event truly special is what we do best here in Dewey Beach…the Party! The race kicks off promptly at 11 a.m., 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.
