B0CA RATON, FL (WFLX) - Think Pink means many things to many people. We asked several community members as well as the Think Pink Rocks performers what it means to them.
Kody, performer: "I think a good cause for good people."
Jake Miller, performer: "Breast cancer has really impacted my family, my grandmother a few years before I was born, she died of breast cancer. So it means a lot to me and my family."
Angela Lutin, motivational speaker/author/Flywheel Sports: "I think this is a great event. The co-founders I've known for years, and I think they've done a phenomenal job. It's really excited to bring something of this caliber to Boca Raton and to be to put it on right in Mizner Park and bring it to this part of the community. I told Elizabeth today that they've done a really good job, and I'm really proud of her. They inspire to lead which is what I teach in my life, and I'm really happy to see it in people, as well."
Eddie Mady, MThree Productions president: "It means doing something for a great cause, to help something that's so terrible, in a fun way. Every mile stone that we take is a celebration with music. It's a language that everyone understands, and it's a way that we can give love and help people that are suffering from breast and ovarian cancer."
Iyaz, performer: "It's an awareness because there's a lot of stuff that's going on out there. My aunt is someone who had breast cancer, so definitely any chance I have to go out and help. Rather it's performing. Giving speeches. Giving to the charities. I'm there."
DJ Jam Master J'Son, performer: "It's just a good cause. I have a couple of family members who had cancer. One of my aunts, she beat it. So I'm here just to support the whole cause."
Shontelle, performer: "I've been doing this since day one, so as long as I'm in the country, I'm like 'Steve, call me, you know I'll always here for Think Pink'. It means a lot to me because being a woman myself, I could be potentially effected by breast cancer, as well. And I do know people who have been, and it's tough."
Melanie Fiona, performer: "Think Pink is definitely a state of mind. It's one of those things that we definitely need to keep in our mind, that we definitely need to keep in our minds especially as women. Think Pink, remember that pink ribbon. Remember all the women and men who have been affected by breast cancer and cancer in general. And do what you can to when you can all the time."
Asher Roth, performer: "From a personal standpoint, I lost an aunt to breast cancer. There's been colon cancer in my family and things like that. So Think Pink to me is really about an opportunity to come out and spread awareness about a young generation of people. It's an outlet for people to really have fun and learn something. And I think when you can combine those two things, it's a win."
Brett Loewenstern, performer/American Idol contestant: "I feel so honored to be of a special charity, because I know someone who had breast cancer, and thank God she survived. It's an amazing cause and an amazing experience."
