On Saturday, April 9th at the Danversport Yacht Club, Alexandra "Lexi" Therberge was crowned "Miss Pink 2016" at The Miss Pink Pageant, an annual event where breast cancer survivors "compete for a cause and fight for a cure". Therberg was one of nine contestants who awed the panel of judges with her story of courage and survival. Among the panel of judges were Mix 104.1’s Karson Tager, Kiss 108’s Romeo, The Bachelorette’s Dylan Petit, and Dirty Water Media's very own Julia Scaparotti.  

The benefit aids the non profit organization, Miss Pink, which supports local families affected by breast cancer by providing funds to cover the costs of medical bills and basic necessities during times of treatment. This year's Pageant profited over $15,000 that will go directly back into the community.

An Air Force veteran, wife, and mother of two boys, Therberg was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2015. In her role as Miss Pink 2016, Therberg will travel across New England heightening both  breast cancer awareness and bringing breast cancer education to the general public, as well as sharing the mission of the Miss Pink Organization.
