With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Stockley Tavern hosted its 3rd annual fundraiser for the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.

This great organization provides support to men and women in diverse communities to those who have recently been diagnosed or currently battling breast cancer in Delaware. They help those with low incomes and those with little or no insurance receive free or reduced cost care.

On the afternoon of October 22nd, Stockley Tavern held a cornhole tournament, hosted by Delaware Cornhole, guest bartender competition, silent and live auctions, 50/50 raffle and more.

We are excited to announce that we raised $98,000!

Connie Holdridge, Program Director for Sussex County for Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, said: “We can’t do what we do without the support of generous people and businesses like you. The vision of the agency is to create a community where every person diagnosed with breast cancer becomes a survivor, and fear and doubt are replaced with knowledge and hope.”

We would like to thank our guest bartender teams: Nate Benson with Tony Banks, Lance Mears with Jesse Long, Josh Wharton with Will Klemkowski, “Bronco” Barry Adkins with Gino Giuliano, and Rob Meding with Shannon Morris and Max Robichaud.
