Think Pink: The Concert for the Cure

As some of you may have noticed, there is a new banner hanging on the upper right side of the Idaho Ad Agencies blog.

Think Pink - Because you know someone or know someone who knows someoneThink Pink's Concert for the Cure is a benefit concert to educate the community about breast cancer, and to raise funds for the Boise Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The concert is scheduled for Saturday, November 8th, and full details are available below.

Think Pink Inc. was founded in October 2004 in Coeur d'Alene by Jen Henriksen, Crissie McDowell, Melanie Adams and Katie Shamberg, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Boise chapter of Think Pink was started in August 2008 by Lindzee Frei, Kate Holgate, Michelle Caster and Crissie McDowell. From Think Pink's Our Story:

Our goal is to educate our community about breast cancer and aid in the fight to find a cure in our lifetime through various fundraising activities. 100% of funds raised are directly donated to the Boise Affiliate of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and are used to provide research grants and uninsured women in our area with mammograms, an essential tool in early detection.
To date, Think Pink Inc. has raised nearly $40,000 through events and t-shirt sales. More details about Think Pink are available on the fact sheet from their website.
