Dolores Del Monte (born March 15, 1932 in Spokane, Washington) was "Playboy" magazine's Playmate of the Month for the March 1954 issue.

Del Monte was an only child of Italian ancestry and at an early age held a love for singing, dancing and music. She moved to Hollywood after graduating from high school in 1950 to pursue an acting career.

While in Hollywood, Del Monte posed for photographers Bruno Bernard and Zoe Mozert. She was happy that the work paid well ($50.00 per hour) but was hesitant at first to pose in the nude. Bernard had sold some of her photos to the Baumgarth Calendar Company in Melrose Park, Illinois, who in turn sold them to a young magazine publisher named Hugh Hefner. It wasn't until 1979 that Del Monte realized that she had been a Playmate. She found out when her son Steve, who was attending college in New Jersey, saw his mother's centerfold while leafing through the 25th anniversary issue of "Playboy".

In 1952, Del Monte married her high school sweetheart, Roy Card, and settled down to start a household in San Bernardino, California. She had three children, Greg, Steve and Lisa. Her husband had a job in the aerospace industry, and his work on the Titan II missile took the family all over the world.

By 1969, Del Monte had returned to Spokane and got a job at the Crecent Department Store as a scarf and scarf-clip demonstrator. During the early seventies, Del Monte and Card divorced. In 1974, she was hired as the senior tour guide supervisor for the World's Fair held in Spokane.

Dolores married her second husband, Al Mack, in 1977. They moved to Beaverton, Oregon, where Mack worked as an insurance broker. He died in 1987, and Del Monte moved down to Southern California.

Today, Del Monte participates in "Playboy" events and devotes much of her time to fundraising for the 18th Chromosone Registry.Fact|date=February 2007
