About 200 shops and restaurants throughout Central and Northwest Arkansas will offer discounts Oct. 29 – Nov. 7 with Partners Card, a fundraising project of the volunteer auxiliary of the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).
For ten days, shoppers and diners who purchase the $50 cards will receive a 20 percent discount at nearly 200 area stores and restaurants in Central Arkansas, Conway and Northwest Arkansas. All proceeds from the sale of Partners Cards benefit the Cancer Institute Auxiliary, and are used to fund projects that support cancer patients in Arkansas. Past projects have included free wigs for patients experiencing hair loss; housing and transportation assistance; oncology massage; patient and caregiver yoga classes; and cancer screening events.
This marks the 18th year for the Cancer Institute to offer Partners Card in central Arkansas, the 14th year in Northwest Arkansas and the sixth year in Conway. During that time, the fundraiser has raised more than $2.9 million for programs and services benefiting cancer patients in Arkansas.
