Minnesota’s Simon shopping centers today announced they will be participating in a national engagement with Susan G. Komen to support the fight against breast cancer, engaging employees, retailers and shoppers in ‘Mission Pink’ events throughout the month of October.
“As active members in this community, Albertville Premium Outlets, Twin Cities Premium Outlets, and Southdale Center provide an ideal backdrop for raising awareness and encouraging support in finding a cure for breast cancer, a disease we know affects many of our employees, retailers and shoppers every year,” said Krystal Zell, Simon’s senior vice president of field marketing.
“We are delighted to be working with the dedicated people at Simon,” said Dr. Judy Salerno, Komen President and CEO. “With one case of breast cancer diagnosed every two minutes in the U.S., programs like Simon’s ‘Mission Pink’ play a key role in bringing our mission to people in communities across the country. The support of Simon and their customers will help us fund research, provide support to women, men and families suffering from breast cancer, and move toward a world with no breast cancer.”
Visitors to Albertville Premium Outlets, Twin Cities Premium Outlets and Southdale Center will notice that the Guest Services booth will be outfitted in pink and staff will be honoring National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by donning pink accessories. Other planned activities include:
Albertville Premium Outlets Voucher Program: $10 voucher cards, available at Guest Services, will offer 25 percent off one item at all participating retailers. One hundred percent of these donations will benefit Komen. During October 2015, Simon is proud to support Susan G. Komen through various fundraising initiatives, and along with the help of generous customers, will guarantee a contribution of at least $250,000.
