HOUSTON – For the fourth year, upscale Houston merchants and restauranteurs are participating in Shop With Heart to raise money for the American Heart Association.

The public is asked to purchase a $50 Shop with Heart Card, presented by the Heart Guild of Houston, at any participating stores or restaurants. The cards go on sale Thursday, April 13. 

One hundred percent of the money from the sale of the cards goes to the American Heart Association.

When the card is presented at a participating store, shoppers get a 20 percent discount. At participating restaurants, diners get a free appetizer or dessert. 

Discount days begin April 28 and run through May 7.
