Simon®, a global leader in premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations, today announced its fall campaign to support Susan G. Komen, the world’s leading nonprofit breast cancer organization. More than 150 Simon Malls®, Mills®, and Premium Outlets® nationwide will be participating in a range of activities during the month of October including at Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets.
“We are thrilled to launch our More Than Pink initiative and have been overwhelmed by the ongoing positive support this movement has garnered with our shoppers, retailers, and employees to support Susan G. Komen in its tireless efforts to save lives and end breast cancer forever,” said Jessica Vrbanoff, director of marketing and business development, at Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets.
Through this campaign, Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets is helping support Komen’s work to save lives and reach its Bold Goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the United States by 2026. Simon is joining the fight against breast cancer by starting a conversation and challenging people to help create a renewed movement in the fight against breast cancer, a disease that will kill more than 42,000 people this year.
Visitors to Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets can participate in a variety of programs to help support Susan G. Komen throughout the month of October. As part of the Discount Pass Program, shoppers who make a $10 donation will receive a discount valid for 25 percent off one single item at participating retailers including Banana Republic Factory Store, Columbia Sportswear, GUESS Factory Store, Le Creuset, Old Navy Outlet and The North Face, among many others. Also, shoppers can purchase a specially marked Visa® Simon Giftcard® at Guest Services and Simon will donate one dollar to Komen for every giftcard purchased.
In 2018, Simon raised more than $550,000 to benefit Susan G. Komen, all generated through the support and participation of shoppers, retailers, and employees.
