We love that the Dallas-based family violence agency, The Family Place, is gearing up for another exciting year of Partners Card with their annual Seller Soirée event. Recently, this year’s event took place at the new Alexandre Birman store at NorthPark Center. The evening kicked off the card selling season and recognized the 2019 card sellers and sponsors that make it possible to continue the premier fundraiser each year.
Inside the jewel-box of a store, Partners Card Co-Chairs Rachel Michell, Nina Sachse and Stephanie Seay, along with Honorary Chair Robert Weatherly, mingled with almost 100 guests in attendance. A longtime favorite cause, now in its 27th year, the annual fundraiser has accumulated a steady group of longtime and loyal supporters. The event has raised over $1 million for The Family Place in recent years, a goal the 2019 team plans to reach as they “Save Money & Save Lives!”
Of course, guests enjoyed sips and bites from Proper Catering while shopping inside the stylish spot and admiring the Brazilian designer’s stunning selection of shoes. Outside the shopping center sat a beautiful car from Audi Dallas, the event’s automotive sponsor. Attendees picked up gift bags filled with goodies from NorthPark Center retailers.
You likely know that NorthPark Center is the top shopping center sponsor of the fundraiser and has hosted a Partners Card party for over ten years. The shopping center boasts over 70 retailers and restaurants who will be offering generous holiday discounts from October 25 – November 3, 2019. In fact, customers who purchase a $70 Partners Card receive a 20% discount at retailers and a 10% discount at restaurants. Over 750 participants from all over the DFW metroplex will partner with The Family Place this fall. The Card is a direct donation to The Family Place and equates to providing one night of safety for a victim of family violence at the organization’s shelters, as the co-chairs reminded the crowd.
