Tanger contributes to American Cancer Society

Shoppers at the Tanger Outlet Center in Park City last fall helped to support the American Cancer Society, by contributing to a $8,709 donation to the organization.

October 10, 2005, the center donated one percent of the day’s total sales to the American Cancer Society in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. That contribution was added to the proceeds from the sale of special commemorative bracelets during September and October.

Tanger reports it has supported the fight against breast cancer since 1994. Through its annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, the center has raised over $3.5 million to benefit American Cancer Society chapters across the country. Last year’s fund was Tanger’s second donation to Utah’s office for the American Cancer Society.

Funds raised will support the American Cancer Society’s programs including "Reach to Recovery," a one-on-one peer support for breast cancer patients, as well as "Look Good Feel Better," a program where local cosmetologists help cancer patients with beauty and nutritional techniques.

The American Cancer Society identifies its mission as a commitment to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by saving lives, diminishing suffering and preventing cancer through research, education, advocacy and service. Founded in 1913 and with national headquarters in Atlanta, the society has 14 regional divisions and local offices in 3,400 communities.

Distribution will begin in the fall for Marker Ltd.’s entire retail network.

According to Marker Ltd. President Daryl Santos, the center in Reno will be clothing-specific.
