UC Cancer Center 'Shops' for a Cure
Published October 2005
The UC Cancer Center and Cincinnati Magazine have collaborated to create the Partners Card, a new fund-raising program that supports local cancer research efforts while also giving shoppers a hefty discount at local businesses.
The Partners Card, similar to a retail discount card, offers shoppers a 20 percent discount on purchases made now through Nov. 6 at more than 150 merchants in Clifton, Hyde Park, O'Bryonville and adjacent neighborhoods.
Cardholders also will receive a free, one-year subscription to Cincinnati Magazine.
"Our scientists and cancer specialists are among the most talented in their field, and they're not just delivering the best treaments--they are developing them," says Jack Gluckman, MD, director of the UC Cancer Center. "Partners Card is an easy, quick way for the UC family--and the community--to support important cancer research being conducted right here in Cincinnati."
The Partners Card costs $50, and all card sale proceeds will benefit UC cancer research. Cards can be purchased in the UC MainStreet Connection Center in Tangeman Hall or at http://giveto.uc.edu/partnerscard.
For a full list of vendors, visit www.cincinnatimagazine.com or call Rachel Whisner, UC Cancer Center, at (513) 558-8624.
Partners Card is made possible with support from Cinco Credit Union, Cincinnati Magazine, WCPO, Basco Franklin Savings and Ulmer & Berne.
