How to Save Money While Fighting Breast Cancer This Month

Share

 

Beach-area yogis will say “Namaste” to a month of savings on Sunday, Sept. 30, when Rehoboth’s Tanger Outlets launches its annual Pink Savings Card campaign with an outdoor yoga session.

Local teacher and cancer survivor Shannon Sugrue will lead the class, which starts at 10 a.m. at the plaza in Tanger Seaside near the shopping services. The first 100 people will receive a free yoga mat.

“We chose to kick off this year’s Pink campaign with a yoga event because we thought it would be fun, inclusive and interactive,” says Amy Schnerr, general manager of Tanger’s Rehoboth location. “The yoga event will be a morning of inspiration, connection and community. We welcome people of all ability levels—and not just cancer survivors.”

Tanger raises money for local charities by selling a $10 card that gives users 25 percent off at participating Tanger stores through Oct. 31.

In 2017, the campaign donated over $420,000 to local charities in Tanger markets nationwide—$37,650 of which went to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC), the local beneficiary.

In addition to doing yoga and buying cards, participants on Sunday can learn more about the DBCC as well as tour the mobile women’s health screening van.

“By joining us this Sunday, people are demonstrating that none of us are alone, that we are part of a larger community who cares and has hope,” Schnerr says.
