For the last five years, I’ve supported the crazy shopping frenzy that happens throughout Dallas and the metroplex every Fall, and now that PinkMemo rests deep within the Internet cemetery, I’ve decided that I will continue to support my favourite charities—especially Partners Card that benefits The Family Place.

I couldn’t attend this event, but I am happy to share photos of all the charitable peeps and friends that celebrated the 21st Annual Partners Card kick-off party at Galleria Dallas on June 5th. This year, co-chairs Annika Cail, Katy Duvall and Sara Friedman will face the challenge of beating last year’s $1,115,854.00 achievement, no small feat I might add.

So just a reminder—when it’s time to purchase your Partners Card 100% of your purchase goes directly to The Family Place, which is the largest fundraiser of the year that helps support survivors of family violence. This year, save the date for all those holiday shopping gifts and shop between October 25 and November 3, that 20% discount can go a long way. Stay tuned, and I’ll let you know when Partners Card goes on Sale.
