Miss A Columnist

Mollie Gabriel is the Charleston Editor for Miss A. She has always admired people who can focus on one thing. Raised in San Diego, she eagerly left for the University of Missouri's School of Journalism, on a whim transferred to Smith College in Massachusetts and graduated with a degree in Cultural Anthropology--but not before being introduced to Geography, which led to a certificate of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from the University of Denver. In June she quit her job as a GIS Analyst in San Diego for her Navy Submariner's military orders to Charleston, and left for a road trip across America to see as many national parks, monuments and baseball games they could reach. Starting a blog about their adventures, she remembered how much she loved writing, and how much she missed exploring, interviewing and story telling. A big proponent of healthy and active lifestyles, Mollie can be found pounding pavement miles away from home training for a marathon, building mind and body strength in the yoga studio, or blending the produce section in her Vitamix. She instantly loved the class and sass of Charleston southerners and is completely addicted to shrimp and grits.

Pink Night Out In Charleston

pinkpartini-charlestonTanger 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.

WHEN: Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 4 – 7 p.m.

Tanger Outlet Mall
