Pink Style Campaign Raises Funds For People’s Health Clinic
Tanger Outlets of Park City is once again offering shoppers great savings, as part of an effort to end breast cancer, during the annual Pink Style campaign in October.
Locally the funds go to help out the Peoples Health Clinic.
The director of the Peoples Health Clinic, Beth Armstrong, said they’ve been working with Tanger for three years.
“We were actually approached by them originally three years ago to be their benefactor if you will for the pink cards.” Armstrong explained, “The money that we sell on the pink cards goes to people’s health clinic and breast cancer research.”
“Our shoppers can purchase an unlimited use Pink Card for a $10 donation to this breast cancer research.” Candice Ford said, “That pink card gives them unlimited use throughout the whole month of October and about two-thirds of our stores are participating. So, they can receive a 25% discount off a single item at all of those stores throughout the whole month.
That’s Candice Ford, general manager at the Tanger Outlets, who said that nationally, Tanger has been running the Pink Style campaign for nearly 25 years.
“Tanger started this in 1994 and we like to keep the money for breast cancer research and for assistance with those currently fighting it and some of the survivors that need assistance in overcoming their challenges as they fight this ugly disease. We love to keep that money in our community, so we’ve raised over $17 million since we began the program and all of those funds stay within our local communities and also a portion of it goes towards the breast cancer research foundation.”
Aimee Armer, development director with the Peoples Health Clinic, said they’re grateful to be the local beneficiary of the campaign. The organization provides health care for the uninsured.
“We see women, we help diagnose them we want to keep them healthy. We have a patient now who is undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer and so the fund that we get from Tanger helps us with our women services to provide this essential care to them and also helps us with this particular patient in helping treat them and keep them healthy. Basically, we work on a voucher system. So, people can come in and be seen and get screened. We also work with intermountain hospital who has been so wonderful for us to get mammograms and to also make sure that if they need chemotherapy that they can provide that. It is income based but certainly we want to make sure they’re getting the care they need.”
Armstrong added that the clinic has had an office in Heber since February.
“So, our Heber campus is open on Mondays 8-12 and it’s a women’s clinic. If there’s a need for a mammogram then its done at the Heber hospital. We are having the clinic every other Monday. We ask that you call the Peoples Health Clinic at Round Valley make your appointment all the appointments are made through 435-333-1850. You can make the appointment for either Monday mornings in Heber or at the Round Valley Clinic.”
To get a pink card, you can go online to PeoplesHealthClinic.org or visit the Tanger Mall offices.
They added that next week, Friday October 19th, they’re hosting a Girls Night Out, from 3:00 to 8:00 pm.
“Start in the shoppers services office, pick up your pink card we have all kinds of bonuses and perks with that for the night.” Ford said, “We also have a gift with purchase program. If you spend $100 or more that night throughout any of our stores, we will give you a Samsonite Yacht tote and it’s bright pink it’s very fun.”
