breast cancer in the United States alone. More than 800 women are diagnosed each day and breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women across the nation.
From September 15 through October 25, the Tanger PinkSTYLE Campaign will take place at 43 Tanger Outlets in the United States and Canada. Shoppers can purchase 25% OFF Pink Cards in Savings Packs of five Pink Cards for five dollars and save 25% on a single item at participating stores. Customers can purchase as many Pink Card Savings Packs as they like from Tanger Shopper Services. Proceeds from Pink Cards will benefit breast cancer organizations in local communities as well as nationally through The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Since 1994, Tanger Outlet Centers has contributed more than $13.5 million to breast cancer research through the PinkSTYLE Campaign, 5K races, Pink Partini Events and other breast cancer-related fundraising events across the country. In 2013, the company raised $1.5 million during PinkSTYLE, the most money raised in a single year since it began supporting this important cause.
“We are proud to join with our customers and tenants at our centers across the U.S. and Canada to bring awareness and raise much needed funds for breast cancer research and prevention,” said Steven B. Tanger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. “We remain committed to supporting these important organizations that are helping further educate women on prevention and hopefully will find a cure to a disease that has affected so many women and families.”
