Pink is a bold color so significant that women everywhere know what it stands for immediately- it stands for hope! This fall, Tanger is offering its shoppers a way to join in the fight against Breast Cancer with their annual PinkSTYLE campaign.
September 12 - October 25, 2012, the 19th annual Tanger Pink STYLE campaign will take place at the Tanger Outlet Center in Tilton. As part of Tanger’s fundraising efforts, shoppers will be able to purchase Pink Cards for a $1.00 donation each. The Pink Card provides Tanger customers with a 25% discount on a single item at participating stores located at Tanger Outlets Tilton. Proceeds from Pink Card sales will be donated to LRGHealthcare breast cancer awareness initiatives and the The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
“Tanger is proud to join with our retail partners and our customers in a team effort to put an end to this terrible disease of Breast Cancer,” said Steven B. Tanger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. “Our goal is to help raise and donate the funds necessary for Breast Cancer research so that a cure and prevention can be found.”
Money raised by Tanger through its sale of Pink Cards is donated locally through the Stanley K. Tanger Breast Cancer Fund to LRGHealthcare breast cancer awareness initiatives. Customers can purchase as many Pink Cards as they would like at Tanger Shopper Services Center or online at www.tangeroutlet.com.
Since 1994, Tanger Outlet Centers nationally has contributed more than $11 million to this important cause through the PinkSTYLE Campaign, 5K races, Pink Partini Events and other Breast Cancer related fundraising events. Across the United States and now in Canada, Tanger will also raise money this year through a variety of other onsite and community activities including but not limited to sponsorships of walks and runs for a cure, early detection demonstration and prevention kiosks, fashion events and more.
The Tanger Outlets in Tilton, in conjunction with Northeast Communications, Hannaford Supermarkets, AutoServ Dealerships, Belknap Landscape Company and Skechers, will host the Fourth Annual Fit for a Cure Family 5k Run/Walk presented by Under Armour on Sunday, September 30, 2012 at 8:30 am. This is a timed and USATF Certified 5K event or 3.1 mile course (#NH10017RF) that will take place at the Tanger Outlets in Tilton. The first 500 registrants will receive a race t-shirt. All finishers will receive a commemorative participant medal, Tanger shopping discounts and more. Prizes will be awarded to division winners as well as the top three male and female winners. Runners can register at www.tangeroutlet.com/race. The registration fee is $20.00 for adults and $15.00 for children under 12 years of age and $25 day of registration. Tanger’s Fit for a Cure 5K Run/Walk will benefit LRGHealthcare’s breast cancer awareness initiatives. Tanger Outlets will also reward the most spirited team who embraces the Pink theme. The "Most Spirited" team will receive a FREE lunch courtesy of Uno's.
Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer in women (excluding skin cancer). In 2011, The American Cancer Society estimates that 290,000 women will hear the words 'You have Breast Cancer.” The chance of a woman having invasive Breast Cancer sometime during her life is 1 in 8. The chance of dying from Breast Cancer is 1 in 36. At Tanger, we want to see a cure in our LIFETIME. Join us and THINK PINK! You can make a difference when you shop and save during Tanger Outlets PinkSTYLE campaign!
