Breast Cancer Awareness Event: Hip Hop In Pink An Absolute Success!

28 Oct

Radio Personality and Blogger for MERDJ.com Civ Jones was successful in putting on one of the most successful events for Breast Cancer Awarness Month with Hip Hop In Pink. Politic With Permiss was in the building to ring in the festivities with some of the Who’s Who of the Baltimore social scene.

Raising several hundred dollars for non profit breast cancer awarness organization Blink Pink, Hip Hop In Pink included musical performances by the likes of Carmen Camren, Si-Notes, Ashley Moore, Tiara Laniece, TT The Artist, and rock band Mzery Loves Company. As well as a live MC cypher with Jhene Tha Realer, Elle S, Tufflon Donna and Voice.

Hip Hop In Pink 2011 was also in conjunction with Eric Stewart’s Women of Power Organization. Women of Power is a collection of women that have outstanding accomplishments in various communities and industries. During the evening’s event, Women of Power inducted three new members as apart of its weekly happy hour. Each member had some sort of tie to breast cancer as a advocate of awarnessand or as a survivor themselves. Media outlets such as Street Smart Magazine, HipHopFoundry.com, HipHopCleopatra.com, The Talk Lounge with Kanika, EricaVain.com,  LPF Media, and Radio One’s 92Q Jams were all in attendance.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Let’s Celebrate Life with Hip Hop in Pink 2011

14 Oct

MERDJ.com in conjunction with E Media’s Women of Power Networking Happy Hour will be hosting the 2nd Annual “Hip Hop in Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention showcase. The event will be held at one of Baltimore’s premiere, nightlife venues, Eden’s Lounge, 15 W. Eager Street Baltimore, MD on Thursday, October 27, 2011 from 6pm-12am. The event will be hosted by Magic 95.9’s Civ Jones and music powered by 92Q Rap Attack’s Angel Baby featuring performances by: Carmen Cameron, Si-Notes, Ashley Moore, Tiara LaNiece, TT the Artist, Mzery Loves Company and exclusive all female Hip Hop cypher.

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.

Media interested in covering the event, and those interested in donating women-friendly items for inclusion in our Hip Hop in Pink gift bags can email Singleton Newman at politicwithpermiss[at]gmail. com or Civ Jones at merdjmediagroup[at]gmail. com. 

Hip Hop In Pink is brought to you by MERDJ.com, E Media, Moody Creations, Women of Power,  New Hope Management and Politic With Permiss.
