This year’s Partners Card is a landmark year celebrating 30 years of saving money and
lives. With one hundred percent of each Partners Card purchase going directly to support
the mission, the funds raised have been a critical part of supporting the life-saving
programs and services of The Family Place.
Started by a small group of dedicated volunteers, Partners Card has become one of the
most impactful fundraisers for The Family Place and a highly anticipated shopping event in
Dallas. Since its launch in 1993 with founding chairs Sally Hoglund and Sally Johnson, the
fundraising program has grown from 150 participating stores raising $90,000 to more than
715 participating retailers raising over $1 million annually. To date, Partners Card has
raised more than $20 million for The Family Place.
