TILTON, NH-During this season of hope and giving, the Tanger Outlet Center in Tilton raised and donated $29,960.35 to LRGHealthcare for the battle against breast cancer.
“It takes all of us working together with a common focus and determination to find a cure for this terrible disease,” 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.”
Tanger’s 2013 PinkStyle Campaign ran September 12 - October 25 with funds being raised through the sale of the popular TangerStyle Pink card. For a $5 donation to local breast cancer beneficiaries, Tanger customers received a 'five-special' pink savings card providing 25% bonus savings at participating Tanger Outlet stores.
In addition to the sale of TangerStyle Pink cards, Tanger raised money to fight breast cancer through the 5th Annual Fit For-A- Cure 5K Run/Walk, held in September. More than 900 hundred people participated, and over 25 businesses sponsored the race to benefit breast cancer awareness initiatives at LRGHealthcare.
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.
“The doctors and staff at LRGHealthcare understand and value the importance of early detection in regard to breast and other cancers. Funds raised from this year’s Tanger 5K and PinkStyle Campaign will help LRGHealthcare as we continue to provide state-of-the-art technology to patients right here in the Lakes and Three Rivers Regions," stated LRGHealthcare President and CEO Tom Clairmont. "We are extremely grateful to Eric Proulx and the entire Tanger team for their dedication and generosity."
