On Top of the World
Family Place toasts Partners Card record-breaking success with towering party
Those involved in the Partners Card program are on top of the world after this year's successful fundraising campaign. So where better to celebrate than a penthouse overlooking the city?
Supporters gathered at Museum Tower to toast top card sellers and contest winners as revealed by Family Place executive director Paige Flink. She was joined by Bob White from Bank of Texas, which served as this year's presenting sponsor. All proceeds from the sale of each $70 Partners Card helped fill the coffers at the Family Place, one of the longest-serving family violence providers in the state.
The real highlight came when co-chairs Annika Cail, Katy Duvall and Sara Friedman announced that Partners Card 2013 raised a record-breaking $1,150,884. Elated by the news, attendees — including Barbara Buzzell, Robert Weatherly, Lynn McBee, Sam Saladino, Sara and Cass Robinson, Nancy Scripps, and Paula Davis —raised a glass to everyone whose hard work helps Family Place in its mission to end the epidemic of family violence.
