Dewey Business Partnership thanks supporters

By Kellyann Ranieri | Jan 02, 2013

The Dewey Business Partnership would like to thank the brave souls, families, dogs and volunteers who participated in the first annual Dewey Dunk into the Atlantic on New Year’s Day.

Despite the cold and cloudy conditions, well over 100 dunkers and supporters came out to celebrate this inaugural event that helps to fund the Dewey Business Partnership’s development of shoulder season events and positive initiatives in Dewey Beach.

The partnership also would like to especially thank Friends of Dewey for their support as well as the members of the Delaware Air Rescue Team, the Rehoboth Beach Fire Company ambulance, and the Lewes Fire Department marine unit all who kept a watchful eye to make sure that the dunkers were safe.

This true team effort made the event a huge success and has initiated a new tradition in Dewey Beach that we know will grow in the years to come.

The Dewey Business Partnership wishes everyone a happy new year, and we hope to see you at our many family-friendly events planned for 2013. For a calendar of events, go to
