“Our shoppers, retailers and employees have demonstrated their support and commitment to Susan G.

”We’re honored to continue our partnership with the Washington D.C.-area Simon centers and are inspired by their dedication in raising funds and awareness in the fight against breast cancer,” said Christina Alford, SVP of Development at Susan G. Komen. “The generosity of Simon is making an incredible impact on the lives of countless women and men and we look forward to what this partnership will bring in the year ahead.”
