The Starboard Restaurant is all-in when it comes to fundraising in style with a side of quirky fun. The goal of the event is to have a great time and raise awareness for breast cancer in a way that brings joy, and raise funds to find a cure. Each year, Steve “Monty” Montgomery, owner of the Starboard Restaurant, personally invites vacationers, locals and colleagues to come, enjoy the weekend, and help support a cause very dear to his heart. To quote Monty: “Whether you come out and donate a dollar or a hundred dollars, we want you know that we appreciate your contribution and participation in events like this that further research and make our community a great place.”
With breast cancer touching so many lives on Delmarva and beyond, nearly everyone knows someone affected by the disease. That’s why these types of events are important to communities on both the local and national levels. In past years the event has brought in tens of thousands of dollars which are much-needed to fund important research.
The Starboard, along with the town of Dewey Beach and Team Dash for the Cure, anticipate the community’s classic enthusiasm for embracing their fun-loving sides while also turning out to support cancer research. Starboard staff and patrons will break out the pink, getting decked out from head to toe in lavish costumery, and tricking out racing trikes in pink. They go all out, with the most decadently pinked-out tricycle winning the Decked Out Big Wheel Contest.
The day boasts a ton of great events including an OBSTACLE COURSE, DRAG RACES for both KIDS and adults, the Decked Out Big Wheel CONTEST, “BRA PONG,” accompanied by PRIZES and an AUCTION. Lots of fun trinkets are available for purchase during the event, from drink KOOZIES to T-SHIRTS and BOAS. All of the net proceeds will be donated by Team Dash for the Cure to Dewey Goes Pink which benefits the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.
There are lots of ways to participate in Big Wheel Race day and support
cancer research, whether you are racing your own Decked Out Big Wheel,
riding a donated trike, or just coming out for a drink.
