Dallas shoppers are giddy as school girls this time of year, when the Partners Card comes to town for 10 days to help us save on early holiday purchases while supporting the Family Place. Now is the time to buy them, and Galleria Dallas is the place.

A longtime supporter of the Partners Card program, Galleria Dallas is doing a little extra this year to help. There are overachievers in every group, and, in this case, they are welcomed and appreciated.

Starting October 18, the Galleria will donate an additional $5 to the Family Place for every card sold at one of its retailers. Dozens of Galleria stores participate in the Partners Card program, including Thomas Pink, Karen Millen, Michael Kors, Bachendorf’s and many others.

“This year, we wanted our donation to be felt by thousands of families,” said Galleria Dallas director of marketing Martha Hinojosa in a statement. “Every $5 donation we’re able to make results in two additional meals for a child while in safe shelter.”

Now before you go running to one of the more than 700 participating retailers and restaurants around Dallas, remember that just because the Partners Card is available for purchase doesn't mean it's ready for action quite yet. The 20 percent discount doesn't start until October 25 and runs through November 3.

Partners Card is the largest fundraiser for the Family Place. All proceeds from $70 card go directly to the Family Place to support its mission to eliminate family violence through intervention and proactive prevention, extensive community education, advocacy, and assistance for victims and their families.
