DALLAS (July 3, 2018) – Dallas-based family violence agency, The Family Place, raised a glass to the start of their signature fundraiser, Partners Card. The non-profit agency, celebrating its 40th anniversary this year kicked off festivities for the 26th annual Card at upscale Oak Lawn boutique, Nuvo.
“We are thrilled to be part of this Dallas fundraising tradition!” enthused co-chair Julian Leaver, who spoke to the jovial patrons, alongside fellow co-chairs Leigh Danley and Tierney Kaufman Hutchins as well as this year’s honorary chair, Max Trowbridge.
The Family Place CEO, Paige Flink was joined by board members, family and longtime supporters at Nuvo. The cheerful crowd delighted in sips and scrumptious bites from Parigi – Chef-Owner Janice Provost was on the scene looking pretty in pink, of course. Guests enjoyed visiting with esteemed artist, Kris Ammon (of KCA Design) who was on the scene hand painting an assortment of items purchased by patrons, including candles, picture frames and coffee table books.
The Family Place is leading the charge with a mission to empower victims of family violence by providing safe housing, counseling and skills that create independence while building community engagement and advocating for social change to stop family violence. As its signature fundraiser, Partners Card is a 10-day shopping event that will run from Friday, October 26th to Sunday, November 4th this fall.
