The Program - ACS Holiday Shopping Card

The Program

 

 

The Holiday Shopping Card, one of Houston’s premier fall fundraising events, is celebrating its 25th Anniversary! Over the past 25 years, in partnership with the American Cancer Society, the women of the VICTORY volunteer organization have raised more than $18.7 million through the sale of The Holiday Shopping Card.

 

With the purchase of The Holiday Shopping Card, shoppers not only receive a 20% discount from October 20, 2022 through October 30, 2022 at more than 475 participating retailers throughout the Greater Houston area, but you help make a difference in the battle against cancer. One hundred percent of the $75 card purchase directly benefits the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

A Letter from Our Chairs

 

Dear Friends,

 

We are honored to serve as the Chairs for the 25th Anniversary Year for The Holiday Shopping Card for VICTORY because we each have been impacted by cancer in different ways. We recognize the life-saving gift that each donation truly is, and the life-saving research and programs that are funded by this event.

 

Cancer knows not race, age, gender, or socio-economic standing. It affects us all. We come together to fight side by side with the American Cancer Society to fund patient resources, services, and research in an effort to lessen the burden of cancer on our community as a whole. The mission never stops, so we must not either. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Holiday Shopping Card. We are looking for sponsors, retailers, purchasers, and donors. All donations will be recognized throughout the Greater Houston area. Every dollar raised contributes to the life-saving work of the American Cancer Society, and 100% of money raised through The Holiday Shopping Card stays right here in Houston! Won’t you give the gift of life today?

 

With love and gratitude,

 

Kathy Bennett, Krista Borstell, and Kathryn Noser
