Guests are encouraged to bring new or gently loved dresses, shoes, handbags and accessories to donate. Beach-to-ball gown-to-bridal…GAP to Gucci… are all accepted as they. In lieu of a donated item, guests may donate five dollars to PACE Center for Girls, Lee. The dresses and accessories collected will be included in the “Love That Dress!” event on August 27th from 6-9pm at Embassy Suites in Estero, which is open to the public.
All of the proceeds from Love That Dress! 6 will benefit PACE Center for Girls, a non-residential prevention and intervention program targeting the unique needs of girls, ages 12 to 18, facing challenges such as physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, foster care, neglect, death of a parent, family history of incarceration and declining grades.
PACE is a 501c3 organization and works with young women between the ages of 12-18 living in at risk situations. PACE provides guidance and educational opportunities providing them with a path to a successful life.
