Outer Banks, NC –Pink is a bold color so significant that women everywhere know what it stands for immediately- it stands for hope! Last fall, Tanger Outlet offered their shoppers a way to join in the fight against Breast Cancer with their 21st annual PinkSTYLE campaign.
The Tanger Breast Cancer Fund through the Outer Banks Relief Foundation was established in December 2012 with a donation of $14,229 from funds raised by Tanger Outlet’s 2012 Breast Cancer Awareness campaign and the locally supported Pink Partini event. The Fund has grown through other Tanger Outlet Fundraising events, public support and most recently with the 2014 Tanger Outlet Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign donation of $7,154.
The Outer Banks Relief Foundation’s Tanger Breast Cancer Fund is designated to financially assist people living in our Outer Banks community who are struggling with breast cancer. Since its inception, over $63,000 has been raised for the Fund and over $20,000 in assistance has been awarded. Breast Cancer warriors assisted through the Fund while undergoing debilitating regimes of chemotherapy and testing have benefited by: having tests or medications not covered by insurance or Medicaid paid for; having their rent or mortgage, utilities and other living expenses paid; and getting financial help for prescribed therapies such as compression garments for the treatment of lymphedema, a common side effect from breast cancer treatment.
For information on getting assistance from or donating to the Tanger Breast Cancer Fund, contact the Outer Banks Relief Foundation at 252/261-2004.
