White Oaks Mall today announced its Spring 2017 More Than Pink movement in support of Susan G. Komen and the fight against breast cancer. As part of its pledge to donate $1 million each year in 2017 and 2018, more than 180 participating Simon Malls, The Mills and Premium Outlets nationwide will be participating in a range of activities during the months of April and May.
“It has been wonderful to see the positive response that the More Than Pink movement has generated over the past year,” said Sophia Piersma, Director of Marketing and Business Development at White Oaks Mall. “Our shoppers, retailers and employees have embraced the opportunities we’ve offered to support Susan G. Komen in its tireless efforts to reduce breast cancer deaths, and we look forward to continuing that momentum this year.”
Visitors to White Oaks Mall will notice the pink theme carried out at the Mall Management Office and staff will be donning pink accessories. Other planned activities include:
Discount Card Program: In exchange for a $5 donation to Susan G. Komen, shoppers will receive a Discount Card, available at the Mall Management Office at participating centers, providing 15 or 25 percent-off one item. All Discount Card donations go to Susan G. Komen.
