Tanger Outlets raises funds to help fight breast cancer
Tanger made its local donation to the American Cancer Society/Watauga County Relay For Life chapter during a special ceremony at Tanger on Dec. 16.
"It takes all of us working together with a common focus and determination to find a cure for this terrible disease," Steven B. Tanger, president and chief executive officer for Tanger Factory Outlet Centers Inc., said.
"I am proud of our Tanger team members in Blowing Rock for their continued hard work in fighting breast cancer, and I thank our shoppers for supporting Tanger's mission to find a cure," he said.
Tanger's 2013 PinkStyle Campaign ran from Sept. 12 to Oct. 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 five special pink savings cards that provided 25 percent bonus savings at participating Tanger Outlet stores.
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 programs and facilities designed to improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients.
Since 1994, Tanger has donated more than $13.5 million to fight breast cancer nationally.
