Tanger discount cards aid breast cancer fight

The Tanger Outlet Center in West Branch is making a big commitment again this fall to help save lives.

As part of Tanger's annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, outlet shoppers in West Branch and across the nation can use the power of pink to battle breast cancer by purchasing Tanger 25% off Pink Style Savings Cards.

In its 16th successful year nationally, Tanger's campaign to stop breast cancer has donated more than $6.1 million dollars to the cause. Last year alone, Tanger centers raised more than $1 million in four weeks. With the campaign's mission to help find a cure for the disease and to help fund programs that improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients, funds raised by Tanger Outlet Center West Branch are being donated to the Tolfree Foundation "Cowgirls Wear Pink" campaign to obtain the area's only piece of digital mammography equipment through the Stanley K. Tanger Breast Cancer Fund. The fund is named in honor of Stanley K. Tanger, the company's founder. To learn more about the Cowgirls Wear Pink campaign, visit www.tolfreefoundation.org or call (989) 343.3690.

Tanger customers can purchase a special Pink Card for a $1 donation that gives them a 25% bonus discount at many participating brand name outlet stores at Tanger. The 25% off Pink Style Savings Cards can also be purchased at the Tanger Shopper Service Center; on-line at tangeroutlet.com, West Branch Regional Medical Center Gift Shop, 2990 Cook Road, Suite 128, West Branch, MI 48661, (989) 345-2594 or the Tolfree Foundation office.

"Our Pink Style Savings Card campaign is providing tremendous added-value to our shoppers' visit this fall," stated Steven B. Tanger, president and chief executive officer for Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. "Tanger customers can feel good knowing that each and every Pink Card they purchase is going to make a big difference to help in the fight against breast cancer in their community."

A free community health fair is scheduled at Tanger Oct. 10 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Representatives from the Tolfree Foundation, West Branch Regional Medical Center, Mid Michigan Medical Center - Gladwin, Health Access and District Health Department No. 2 will be on hand to provide free health related information.

The Earleen Fox/Tanger Outlet Center Memorial 5K Walk/Run to promote breast cancer awareness will take place at 9 a.m. Oct. 3 from the Diebold Insurance Agency parking lot in West Branch. For registration forms, visit the Tanger Outlet Center office. Proceeds will be donated to the Earleen Fox scholarship at Ogemaw Heights High School.
