2014 Partners Card Co-Chairs Announced

The Family Place is excited to announce that Lisa Bhattacharya, Andrea Cheek and Diana Hamilton will serve as 2014 Partners Card co-chairs of the annual shopping event, which will be held Friday, October 24 through Sunday, November 2, 2014

Partners Card is proud to recognize Bank of Texas and their six years of support as the presenting sponsor. This annual fundraising event offers an exciting opportunity to receive a 20 percent discount at your favorite stores while, at the same time, contributing to a worthwhile cause – family violence intervention and prevention. The 10-day shopping extravaganza, with more than 750 participating retail locations and restaurants, ensures cardholders will find something for everyone while shopping throughout the Metroplex.

Partners Cards will go on sale in mid-September for $70 each, and 100 percent of the proceeds will directly benefit The Family Place, Dallas’ longestserving family violence agency.
