LITTLE ROCK — More than 140 stores in central Arkansas and more than 60 stores in Northwest Arkansas will offer discounts on their merchandise Oct. 27 through Nov. 4 as part of the Partners Card, with proceeds benefiting cancer patients at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).


Partners Card is a fundraising project of the volunteer auxiliary of UAMS’ Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, formerly the Arkansas Cancer Research Center. This is the fourth year for the Cancer Institute to offer Partners Card in central Arkansas and the second year in the northwest part of the state.


For nine days, shoppers who purchase the $50 cards will receive a 20 percent discount at dozens of their favorite stores. All proceeds from the sale of the Partners Cards will go to the Cancer Institute’s volunteer auxiliary to fund projects that directly benefit cancer patients. The auxiliary provides information, services, compassion and hope to those touched by cancer.


“The auxiliary’s Partners Card is great for both shoppers and for retailers,” said Kelly Harbert, Partners Card chairman. “Shoppers who purchase a card receive a 20 percent discount on items such as furniture, gifts and clothes. Plus, they are supporting a great cause by helping Arkansas cancer patients.”


Shoppers will be able to save on everything from the latest fashions for the whole family to antiques, home furnishings, fresh flowers, gift items, jewelry, outdoor gear, children’s toys and more.


To purchase the auxiliary’s Partners Card, or for more information, call (501) 580-8670 or visit www.uams.edu/acrcpartnerscard. Cards also may be purchased in Room 150 on the first floor of the Cancer Institute. Many participating retailers will be selling the Partners Cards in their stores. These stores are listed below.


UAMS is the state’s only comprehensive academic health center, with five colleges, a graduate school, a medical center, six centers of excellence and a statewide network of regional centers. UAMS has about 2,538 students and 733 medical residents. It is one of the state’s largest public employers with about 9,600 employees, including nearly 1,000 physicians who provide medical care to patients at UAMS, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, the VA Medical Center and UAMS’ Area Health Education Centers throughout the state. UAMS and its affiliates have an economic impact in Arkansas of $5 billion a year. For more information, visit www.uams.edu.
