Tanger’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign
For millions of shoppers, a trip to a Tanger Outlet Center means a fun-filled day of bargain hunting with friends and family. This fall, a visit to Tanger can mean so much more… it can help save lives. Tanger Outlet Centers’ Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign is taking place now through Oct. 31, at 37 Tanger shopping centers in 23 states. For the 11th year, Tanger is supporting the American Cancer Society in the fight to put an end to breast cancer and improve the quality of life for cancer survivors and their families. Tanger shoppers can make a difference in their community by purchasing special Breast Cancer Benefit Scratch and Save Cards. By simply scratching the special box on each card, a shopper will automatically receive an instant discount of 10 percent-25 percent on any single item at any participating Tanger Outlet Center store nationwide. Breast Cancer Benefit Scratch and Save Cards can be purchased through Oct. 31 for only $1 in all TAnger management offices. Proceeds from sale of scratch and save cards will directly benefit American Cancer Society chapters in tanger markets nationwide. “With more than 20-million shoppers visiting Tanger outlets this fall, we have a tremendous opportunity to raise money and also create much-needed awareness about the importance of self-examination and early detection,” remarked Stanley K. Tanger, chairman and chief executive officer of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. “We are proud to support the work of the American Cancer Society. By working together we can put an end to this terrible disease,” tanger added. According to statistics provided by the American Cancer Society, more than 215,990 women and 1,450 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 40,580 women and 470 men will die from the disease this year alone.
