Now in its 18th year, funds raised through the Partners Card program have made it possible for The Family Place to grow into one of the longest-serving family violence service providers in the state. Since its launch in 1993, the program has grown into the largest fundraiser for The Family Place and has become one of the most popular shopping events in the Dallas area. Beginning with 175 participating stores and growing to more than 750 participating retailers and restaurants in 2009, the community has helped raise more than $10 million in the past 17 years. Each year, with the purchase of a $60 Partners Card, cardholders participate in the 10-day shopping event and save 20 percent at more than 750 retail venues and restaurants throughout the Dallas area. For more information, visit www.partnerscard.org, contact the Partners Card Hotline at (214) 443-7754 x 221 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Individuals interested in becoming card sellers can contact Maggie Cooke Kipp at email@example.com.
Here's how Partners Card works:
An individual purchases a $60 Partners Card from a participating retailer or restaurant, Tom Thumb, card selling individual, direct mail or through The Family Place website.
100% of the $60 card purchase goes directly to support The Family Place programs and services for victims of domestic violence in our community as Partners Card sponsors underwrite all administrative and production costs of the program.
The Partners Card entitles the cardholder to a 20% discount at more than 750 participating retailers and restaurants for a ten-day period.
Merchandise cannot be discounted in advance or held for purchase.
Partners Card is not valid with any other offer. Sale merchandise is not discounted. Special orders are not subject to discount unless permitted by the individual store.
Card bearer must present ID and signed card at time of item purchase. Card is not transferable.

Join Cadillac in our quest to increase awareness for The Family Place! “We can all take responsibility for helping bring about change and keeping our family members, friends and colleagues safe from domestic violence,” said The Family Place Executive Director Paige Flink. “People don’t realize how prevalent this problem is, and the money raised through the Partners Card program is essential for us to help the many women and children fleeing from domestic violence every day.” The Partners Card 2010 Co-Chairmen are Maggie Cooke Kipp, Molly Nolan and Gina Roidopoulos. “We are incredibly proud to be part of this charitable event, and we are excited to try and surpass the million dollar mark in card sales. To date, Partners Card has raised more than $10.2 million for The Family Place, and we want to keep this momentum going,” Maggie said.
