The 10-day charity shopping event, Partners Card, runs Oct. 24-Nov. 2. It has become the largest fundraiser for The Family Place, raking in $1,150,884 last year for domestic violence intervention and prevention. More than 750 retailers participate, including many of our Preston Hollow shops and restaurants. Here’s how it works: Buy a Partners Card at any of the participating retailers for $70, all of which goes straight to The Family Place. Then, use the card to receive 20 percent off purchases.
