We are highlighting some of the amazing Live Auction items that will be available this year thanks to the support of our generous donors. You'll have the opportunity to bid on some one-of-a-kind items and take some amazing adventures.

We also want to take this opportunity to thank the many generous sponsors and auction donors for their support - without them DBCC would not be able to provide our life saving education and support programs.

Northern Lights of Life
, Delaware's premier breast cancer fundraising event in New Castle County, will be held on Saturday, September 12 in the beautiful setting of Longwood Gardens. Please plan now to join us for an evening of celebration, live and silent auctions, gourmet food stations, entertainment and beautiful fashions modeled by breast cancer survivors. 
This festive evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with time to stroll through the conservatory, enjoy refreshing cocktails and delicious food, and bid on great items in our Silent Auction. Later in the evening, participate in the exciting Live Auction and "oohh and aahh" over the beautiful models (and fashions!) on the runway. A raffle of a wide array of electronic products (and pink ribbon ducks!) will capture your attention, too, and the finale of delicious desserts will be irresistible!
Please visit DBCC's website at  to make your reservations for Northern Lights of Life at Longwood on Saturday, September 12!

Please remember that each sponsor, each individual contribution, each corporate and merchant donation, each winning bid, each raffle "duck" purchased, and every committed volunteer helps to support DBCC in its programs and efforts to help defeat breast cancer.
We look forward to seeing you at Northern Lights of Life at Longwood.
