Azuz boutique in Rice Village hosted the Champion Card Kick-off Party Thursday evening. Similar to The Holiday Shopping Card, The Champion Card is a fundraiser card that may be purchased for $40 online or at any participating merchant. Exclusive discounts can be applied to all purchases during the Shop For a Cause weekend, May 15 through May 17. Retailers include Azuz boutique, Baanou, Carrie Ann Boutique and dozens of other local businesses around Houston. One hundred percent of card purchases will be donated directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Nina Gutierrez-Garcia was the originator of the Champion Card, an idea inspired by her mother’s boutique Azuz and other local shops around the city. “We wanted to focus on quality not quantity when selecting our boutiques. Our goal was to create a list of partners we could be proud of and support stores throughout the city.” The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is a cause Garcia understands both personally and professionally. “I work in cancer research and was approached to help fundraise. I didn’t hesitate. My grandmother passed away from Lymphoma so there was a deep professional and personal connection.”
