Heart Guild marries shopping and dining for philanthropy
The American Heart Association’s highly anticipated Shop with Heart Card shopping and dining fund-raising event returns this spring with more than 400 Houston and surrounding area top retailers and restaurants participating.
The Shop with Heart Card event, presented by the Heart Guild of Houston, marries shopping and dining with philanthropy to help fund ongoing life-saving research by the American Heart Association.
The Shop with Heart Card arrives just in time for shoppers looking for spring fashions, prom and wedding essentials, presents for graduation and Mother’s Day.
For a minimum donation of $40 and 100 percent of all proceeds benefitting the American Heart Association, shoppers will receive the Shop With Heart Card. It provides two ways to save: 20 percent off regularly priced merchandise at participating retailers and patron’s choice of a complimentary appetizer or dessert with the purchase of an entrée at participating restaurants. Cards are available online now at www.shopwithheart.org or by phone at 844-210-4541 through April 10. Cards can also be purchased at the participating retailers starting on April 10.
“The Heart Guild of Houston is pleased to lead this premiere spring shopping and dining fund-raising event for the American Heart Association,” said Julie Haralson, president of the Heart Guild. “We created this shopping event to offer a fun experience for Houstonians, to raise awareness for the American Heart Association, to improve the heart health of our community and to support local businesses. Our work is two-fold through this program. We are able to support the important work of the American Heart Association, while supporting local businesses.”
Shopping with the 2015 Shop with Heart Card starts April 24 and continues on until May 3.
Local merchants interested in participating may contact the Heart Guild at 844-210-4541. This fund-raising event is generously underwritten by the Paul and Deborah Adams Family Foundation, Beth Wolff Realtors, Hines and CityCentre.
