GEORGETOWN, DE (October 24, 2017) – Levin Clark presented the Fifth Annual Georgetown Breast Cancer Awareness Car Show on Saturday, October 21 to benefit the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition at 16 Mile Brewery. The event included a parade, live concert with the Glass Onion band, trophies, helicopter rides, food and craft vendors, and demonstrations by the State Police canine division and State Police mounted division. Hall of Fame NASCAR driver Harry Gant was also in attendance to sign autographs. The event was judged with a total of 66 trophies in various categories.
In total, over 250 cars, motorcycles and tractors registered for the 2017 event. Proceeds exceeded $10,000 – a record high. The funds will be used to expand DBCC’s programs in the local community which increase breast cancer awareness, promote the importance of early detection, provide access to mammograms, and provide support and resources to women and men who have been diagnosed or facing a recurrence with breast cancer.

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition is a 501(c)(3) organization offering statewide programs of education, outreach, and support services to promote the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Its vision is to create a community where every person diagnosed with breast cancer is a survivor, and fear and doubt are replaced with knowledge and hope.
Headquartered in Wilmington with offices in Sussex and Kent Counties, DBCC’s programs reach diverse communities to deliver messages that address their unique concerns about breast cancer and early detection. Recognizing the barriers of language, culture, and economics, DBCC trains community advocates to educate and encourage women to take responsibility for breast health. DBCC helps women with low incomes or those with little or no insurance to receive free or reduced-cost care.
DBCC also supports the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s advocacy efforts to end breast cancer. All funds raised for DBCC support programs in Delaware and the neighboring areas in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.
