Flo Rida Helps Raise $1 Million For Breast Cancer Research
With a blitzkrieg of hits such as “Low,” “Right Round,” and more recently, “Whistle” and “Wild Ones,” Flo Rida hasn’t had a problem generating revenue the past few years.
Last week, Flo decided to give some of that money back and to a good cause. He was part of the Think Pink concert, whose proceeds go towards breast cancer screening, treatment and research. Although his exact donation wasn’t revealed, Flo helped raise around $1 million for the cause with the event.
To show their gratitude, the organizers of the event popped up at Flo’s July 3 R You On the List Tour kick off at the Bank United Center in Miami last week, thanking the hulking hitmaker for his and his manger Lee “Freezy” Prince for their efforts.
Flo took it all in stride.
"I'm so proud to be a part of the annual Think Pink Rocks concert and their mission to raise awareness about early detection and genetic testing for breast cancer,” Flo told XXL in a statement. “It’s truly an honor to participate in such an outstanding event where all proceeds are donated to fund screening, treatment and research for breast cancer. I also salute the other artists who continue to dedicate their time to the Think Pink Rocks concert, our support has assisted in raising 1 million dollars to this worthy cause.”
Appropriately, after Flo was thanked at his concert, he performed his smash, “Good Feeling.”
Flo’s R U On The List Tour continues through the end of this month, with Cee-Lo Green, B.o.B. and Kirko Bangz all on the bill as well.—Shaheem Reid (ShaheemReid)
