Here’s how it works: Purchasing a $50 Partners Card gets you 20% discounts and specials to nearly 200 of your favorite local shops and restaurants in central and northwest Arkansas. Full proceeds go toward the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Auxiliary’s work for UAMS, having raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of the fundraiser’s history for things like transportation, nutritional support and housing assistance.

“Patient needs change from year to year, but we have seen a pretty consistent need for transportation and housing assistance,” says Susan Jones, assistant director of volunteer services for the institute. “The funds raised through Partners Card really help take some of the burden off of patients so they can focus on their treatment.”

The milestone UAMS Partners Card Week is set for Oct. 27 – Nov. 5. To get you ready for those 10 days of excellence, here’s a very abridged look at some of the establishments joining UAMS.
