GAB: Outlets donate to fight breast cancer

COMMERCE -- The Tanger Outlet Center in Commerce is donating $13,622 it raised for the battle against breast cancer.

Tanger made its local donation to the Northeast Georgia Chapter of the American Cancer Society during a special ceremony at its annual Merchant Luncheon and Awards program Feb. 7.

"Tanger is committed to supporting breast cancer research" said Steven B. Tanger, President and chief executive officer for Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. "I am proud of our Tanger Team members in Commerce 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 Sept. 12 to Oct. 25 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 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.
