REINVENTED: “The Year That Wasn’t”- 10th Annual Dewey Goes Pink

Reinvented! The “Year that Wasn’t”. 10th Annual Dewey Goes Pink 5k, walk, and pink party with live entertainment.

In lieu of hosting our regular event on Saturday, October 3, 2020…we’ve come up with a way to continue supporting the DBCC, and will cancel the actual live event as celebrating our 10th Anniversary of Dewey Goes Pink is not something we want to do with our hands tied on gatherings due to COVID-19.  The overall intent of Dewey Goes Pink is to gather with loved ones at this event (and gathering is frowned upon at this time) along with the fundraising done for our local Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. (Of course, we think the party we host makes it the best event ever!)  Therefore for this one year…we will do what we can to help raise funds for the DBCC.

It’s not an easy time to expect folks to be as generous as they have usually been with this event, but we’ve chosen a T-Shirt design which we will mail out to those who register, keeping the tradition of our great shirts for this year’s event.  As an added incentive to register this year, those who register here in 2020 and receive their great race shirt will be rewarded for their support next year by having the opportunity to register a full MONTH ahead of everyone else in 2021.  We’ll open registrations to those on July 1st over the public on August 1st next year.  Dewey Goes Pink has sold-out the past few years, this gives some security to those supporting this ‘year that wasn’t‘ and continues to allow us to send a nice check straight to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.  The good work they do should not be compromised by COVID, and our event is their largest fundraiser of the year!  We’ll also continue to have TEAM SIGN UPS, and present the main trophy’s which are the STARBOARD CUP and the DEWEY CUP for biggest team, and highest team raised amount.  Those trophies will be awarded after the September 30th deadline, and presented either here at The Starboard, or shipped to the winners.

Registration for this 2020 event (which is only us shipping you out a shirt then sending funds to the DBCC) is NOW officially open.  Registration for these shirts will end on September 30th so we can get your shirts in the mail to you to wear around town during the month of October.

Being that this entire effort is to support our local DBCC, we’ll continue request support from our sponsors in hopes they will continue with us in supporting our local breast cancer coalition, their logos will appear on the rear of these shirts as usual, in addition to any mailings/eblasts.  Letters will be sent to previous sponsors, anyone new interested please email me directly at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Thank you for your continued support of Dewey Goes Pink, this is the best option because we couldn’t find a way to celebrate our 10th Anniversary with a limit of 250 people, last year alone we had 3500 participants.  We’ll work hard next year to make the 10th the biggest and best ever!  Thanks for helping this year continue the support of the DBCC.
