North Texas’ annual shopping extravaganza benefitting The Family Place will take place October 27 through November 5, 2023
The Family Place – Texas’ largest family violence service agency now in its 45th year – has opened card sales for its annual Partners Card fundraising event. This year, Partners Card takes place Friday, October 27, and lasts until Sunday, November 5, 2023, throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Cards can be purchased online at partnerscard.org, with cards shipped early October.
The event is presented by Bank of Texas, who is celebrating its 15th year as a supporter of Partners Card.
Leading this year’s efforts are tri-chairs Katy Brooks, Sharon Lee Clark, and Kameron Westcott along with Honorary Chair and Board Member of The Family Place, Tom McCollum of Audi Dallas.
“Partners Card unites our community to support survivors of domestic violence on an unprecedented scale,” said Mimi Sterling, CEO of The Family Place. “With local vendors, passionate shoppers, and dedicated volunteers, it achieves resounding success. As we launch sales this year, I’m enthusiastic about the transformative impact. Together, we help The Family Place protect, prevent, and persevere—driving positive change for those in need.”
Partners Card raises crucial funds for The Family Place, allowing the organization to continue its mission of building brighter futures for survivors of family violence. 100% of each individual $75 Partners Card purchase directly supports their programs and services that save lives. With the card, shoppers receive a 20% discount at participating retailers and a 10% discount at participating restaurants at 750+ locations during the 10-day event.
In 2022, Partners Card raised $1.2 million, which equates to 15,350 nights of shelter and safety for survivors of domestic violence. The impact Partners Card has had since it started in 1993, has been tremendous, raising more than $21 million in contributions.
