Tanger Outlet Mall is looking ahead to outfit Charleston shoppers and supporters in October’s hottest color. The mall will host “Pink Night Out” on Thursday, September 26 from 4 – 7 p.m in North Charleston to support finding a cure for breast cancer. The event features music, local cuisine, drinks and a shopping incentive–a $5 book of five 25 percent discount coupons for items at select stores.
Local sponsors include Jim’N Nick’s BAR-B-Q, famous for their “low and slow” pork in North Charleston, the quirky wine and art social experience Fear No Easel in Mt. Pleasant, Paul Mitchell the School in Charleston, Dr. R. Jason, J. Hehr, DMD and the award winning Low Country Plastic Surgery Center. The fundraiser will benefit Charleston’s Hollings Cancer Center, South Carolina’s “foremost cancer treatment and research center,” and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, an organization funding breast cancer research since the early 1990s.
For over 25 years, women and men affected by breast cancer have designated October as the month to rally around finding a cure. Still, according to the American Cancer Society, over two hundred thousand women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States this year alone. And the disease is not gender specific—more than two thousand American men will also be diagnosed this year. But the sobering statistics have only united passionate participants, from walkers and runners to designers and fashionistas, in the fight against breast cancer.
Come get an early start to Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the changing season by adding charitable style to your fall wardrobe and giving hope and support to the twenty seven thousand South Carolina residents who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
