GEORGETOWN – With a 90 percent chance of rain in Sunday’s forecast, the seventh annual Georgetown Breast Cancer Awareness Car, Truck, Motorcycle and Tractor Show has been moved back one week, to Sunday, Oct. 27 at the Marvel Carriage Museum.

“We’ve got a nasty storm coming,” said Levin Clark, founder of the fundraising/awareness event supporting the nonprofit Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. “Everything is still the same. It’s just a week later.”

Admission is free, which will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Marvel Museum is on South Bedford Street in Georgetown.

Albeit seven days later than planned, the event will feature two auctions, live entertainment, food and craft vendors and several featured attractions, including retired NASCAR driver Donnie Allison, a 10-time winner in the then-NASCAR Grand National/Winston Cup series and member of the famed Alabama Gang.

Mr. Allison will be available for autographs and race Q and As, along with several local drivers, including Shawn Ward, Kerry King, Taylor King, Bobby Reid and Kirk Lawson and possibly others.

The 2019 show will mark the debut of the Pin-Up Girl Contest, where ladies dressed in late 1940s and early 50s attire canvass the grounds seeking donations to support the cause.

There will be prizes for first, second and third place in the Pin contest.

Registration for the car, truck, motorcycle and tractor show is $12 per entry and runs from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Upward of 70 awards will be given to show entrants.

Pistol Whipped, a band known for country, rock and other music genres, will provide disc jockey entertainment and perform on stage from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Other scheduled attractions include the Delaware State Police Mounted Patrol and the state police helicopter

In the first six years, the show has generated more than $41,000 in support of the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.

The funds were used to expand DBCC’s programs in the local community, which increased breast cancer awareness, promotion of the importance of early detection, increased access to mammograms, and support and financial resources to women and men who have been diagnosed or facing a recurrence with breast cancer.
