Shoppers can Jumpstart Their Holiday Shopping With UAMS Cancer Institute’s Partners Card


LITTLE ROCK — Dozens of shops and boutiques in central and northwest Arkansas will offer discounts on their merchandise Oct. 26 – Nov. 4 as part of 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). 

To purchase the auxiliary’s Partners Card, or for more information, call (501) 686-8286 or visit www.cancer.uams.edu/partnerscard. Many participating retailers will be selling Partners Cards in their stores, which are listed below.

For 10 days, shoppers who purchase the $50 cards will receive a 20 percent discount at more than 170 area 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 in Arkansas. The auxiliary provides information, services, compassion and hope to those touched by cancer.
 
Just in time for the holidays, 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.

This is the ninth year for the Cancer Institute to offer Partners Card in central Arkansas and the seventh year in the northwest part of the state. During that time, the fundraiser has raised more than $566,000 in central Arkansas and $100,000 in northwest Arkansas.

UAMS is the state’s only comprehensive academic health center, with colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Health Professions and Public Health; a graduate school; a hospital; a statewide network of regional centers; and seven institutes: the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute, the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy, the Harvey & Bernice Jones Eye Institute, the Psychiatric Research Institute, the Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging and the Translational Research Institute. Named best Little Rock metropolitan area hospital by U.S. News & World Report, it is the only adult Level 1 trauma center in the state. UAMS has more than 2,800 students and 775 medical residents. It is the state’s largest public employer with more than 10,000 employees, including about 1,000 physicians and other professionals who provide care to patients at UAMS, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, the VA Medical Center and UAMS’ Area Health Education Centers throughout the state.
