Hip Hop in Pink is an event that raises awareness and donations for organizations that promote breast care health. The movement was founded on the memories of family members and friends who have either been diagnosed or succumbed to the disease of breast cancer. Not wanting anymore premature deaths or diagnosis’s, the event promotes the principles of awareness and prevention by using Hip Hop culture as its vehicle.
Door price for this event is a 10.00 donation fee. Proceeds made from the event will be donated to the Tigerlily Foundation that aims to educate, advocate for, empower and provide hands-on services that support young women (15-40 years old), before, during and after breast cancer detection.
The event is geared towards the 21-40 year old demographic because learning about breast care health, and benefits of early detection at this age, can save lives. By teaching young people to be healthy and aware of their bodies, they are more likely to follow the recommendations regarding clinical exams, mammograms and regular doctor check-ups. Knowing the facts, taking action and early detection are the single most important factors in surviving a breast cancer diagnosis.
