The Tanger Outlet Center in Tilton raised and is donating $35,875.44 for the battle against breast cancer. During this season of hope and giving, Tanger made its local donation to LRGHealthcare during a special ceremony on Thursday, December 13, 2012 at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia.
"Tanger is committed to supporting Breast Cancer research" stated Steven B. Tanger, President and Chief Executive Officer for Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. "I am proud of our Tanger Team members in Tilton for their continued hard work in fighting breast cancer and I thank our shoppers for supporting Tanger’s mission to find a cure for this terrible disease."
Tanger’s 2012 PinkSTYLE Campaign ran September 12th - October 25th with funds being raised through the sale of the popular TangerSTYLE Pink Card. For a $1 donation to local breast cancer beneficiaries, Tanger customers received a special pink card that provided 25% bonus savings at participating Tanger Outlet stores.
In addition to the sale of Pink Cards, Tanger raised money to fight breast cancer through the 4th Annual Fit For A Cure 5K Run/Walk held on Sunday, September 30th.
With its primary mission to help save lives, Tanger’s Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign creates awareness for the importance of early detection and helps raise the money necessary to support ongoing breast cancer research. Tanger’s campaign also helps fund many important programs and facilities designed to improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients.
Since 1994, Tanger has donated over $11 million to fight breast cancer nationally.
