According to Partners Card 2017 Co-Chairs Brynn Bagot Allday and Jennifer Burns,
This year, we look forward to celebrating 25 years of shopping with a purpose during Partners Card 2017 presented by Bank of Texas. The annual Partners Card program is the signature fundraiser for The Family Place and over the past 24 years has become one of the most popular shopping events in the Dallas Metroplex. The Family Place saves thousands of family violence victims each year with the help and support of our community through the Partners Card event, which would not be possible without the support of our participating retailers, sponsors, volunteers and of course, our community.
With the purchase of a $70 card, cardholders will receive a 20 percent discount at more than 750 of their favorite stores and restaurants while supporting The Family Place, Dallas’ largest family violence agency. One hundred percent of the proceeds from card sales directly benefit The Family Place and its programs. The purchase of a $70 Partners Card provides one night of shelter for a woman and her child escaping a violent situation. Since the Partners Card program started, we have provided 257,511 nights of shelter to men, women and children.
As we celebrate the Partners Card 25th anniversary, we are thrilled to have longtime supporters Joanne and Charles Teichman serving as honorary chairs, and we are both honored to serve as event chairs. Excitement for this year’s Partners Card event is building quickly, and we are pleased to announce several new features this year. First, we are excited to roll out the Partners Card App, where you can buy or gift a card, view participating retailers, learn about upcoming Partners Card events and more. The Partners Card App is free and available for both iPhone and Android users. We hope having this digital option will make it easier to shop at your favorite retailers!
Another new feature this year is the limited edition Silver Card, which will be sold exclusively at Partners Card pre-events or can be purchased through The Family Place for $250. Only 100 Silver Cards will be sold. The Silver Card will not only grant cardholders 20 percent off at participating retail locations, but cardholders will also receive a 25 percent discount at more than 85 select Silver Card locations. The Silver Card also grants cardholders two extra days of shopping at participating Silver Card retailers, Wednesday, October 25 and Thursday, October 26, in addition to the standard Partners Card 10-day shopping event from Friday, October 27 through Sunday, November 5. A list of retailers that will honor the Silver Card can be found at www.partnerscard.org.
We hope you will mark your calendars, make your lists and plan to shop October 27 through November 5, 2017, with your Partners Card! For more information, visit www.partnerscard.org, contact the Partners Card Hotline at 214.443.7754, or email [email protected]. Happy shopping!
