REHOBOTH BEACH, DE (Dec. 20, 2016) – Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. recently donated over $21,000 in the Rehoboth Beach-area, to help in the fight against breast cancer during the 23rd annual Tanger PinkSTYLE Campaign. In the spirit of the holidays and the season of giving, funds were donated to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC), a local organization offering statewide programs and services of education, outreach, and early detection and treatment of breast cancer. The mission of the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition is to empower our community by raising awareness of breast health issues through outreach, education and support services, in order to facilitate the early detection and treatment of breast cancer.

Headquartered in Wilmington with offices in Sussex and Kent Counties, the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s programs reach diverse communities to deliver messages that address their unique concerns about breast cancer and early detection. Recognizing the barriers of language, culture, and economics, DBCC trains community advocates to educate and encourage women to take responsibility for breast health. DBCC helps women with low incomes and those with little or no insurance to receive free or reduced-cost care.  The vision of the agency is to create a community where every person diagnosed with breast cancer becomes a survivor, and fear and doubt are replaced with knowledge and hope.

DBCC also supports the National Breast Cancer Coalition and their research efforts by helping to facilitate participation in local clinical trials. All funds raised for DBCC support programs in Delaware and the neighboring areas in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.

“We are proud to join forces with our valued shoppers and retailers across the U.S. and Canada to raise awareness and much-needed funds for breast cancer research and prevention,” said Steven B. Tanger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. “We empathize with every customer, retailer, and employee who has been affected by this disease. We are fully committed to supporting these important organizations, with the goal of finding a cure to a disease that has affected so many families.”

Since 1994, Tanger Outlets locations across the country have raised more than $14 million to battle breast cancer, and planned to raise another $1 million in 2016. Throughout October, Tanger Outlets sold shoppers a “Pink Card” for $5 which provided customers with 25% off a single item in select Tanger stores, with unlimited use through October.  Proceeds from the Campaign supported the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition locally.  On the national level, the Campaign also supported the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), the highest-rated breast cancer organization according to Charity Watch in the U.S.
