6th annual (Save the...) BreastFest

The 6th annual (Save the...) BreastFest is Friday, September 12th at Pickles Pub on 8th Street in Ocean City, MD. We hope to make it bigger and better this year! We have a lot of fun things in the works for this year including; t-shirts, raffles, contests, games, prizes and of course the best live entertainment by the area’s hottest bands!

We are seeking raffle items from local businesses and would like you to consider donating a gift certificate or an item as one of the prizes. We appreciate the local support we’ve had and want to use the prizes, not only to help raise funds for the DBCC, but to help promote local business, not only during Bike Week but by bringing people back for future stays. The event is being promoted on radio, television, and in the newspaper so it works out beneficially for everyone!

All of the proceeds will go to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC), who assists women of the Eastern Shore. The contributions will support the mission of the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC) to empower our community through outreach, education and support services, in order to facilitate the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. The dedicated staff and volunteers will continue to provide education and raise awareness about early detection. DBCC provides services to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients through our Peer Mentor Program by providing one-on-one emotional support, education, and resources.

We want to raise breast cancer awareness with the main focus on the importance of breast self-exam and early detection, and show that breast cancer can affect women and men of any age. The DE Breast Cancer Coalition will have a booth

at the event accepting donations, giving out informational material, and selling t-shirts, coozies, and bracelets.

Pickles Pub and Semiblind Entertainment sponsor the event.
