News Release, Arundel Mills Mall
HANOVER, Md. – 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 Arundel Mills.
“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 Gene Condon, Mall Manager, Arundel Mills.
Through this campaign, Arundel Mills 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% 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. Taking place throughout October at Arundel Mills:
- Discount Pass Program: Shoppers who make a $10 donation to the Susan G. Komen foundation the month of October will receive a discount pass for 25% off one item valid at participating retailers including Banana Republic Factory, Cole Haan Outlet, J.Crew Factory, kate spade new york, Michael Kors, Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store, True Religion and Under Armour Factory House.
- Gift Cards: Simon will donate $1 to Susan G. Komen for each specially marked Visa® Simon 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.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
