ATTEND LOVE THAT DRESS!8
This year’s Love That Dress!8 will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 24 at the Embassy Suites in Estero, located at 10450 Corkscrew Commons Drive. In the months leading up to the event, members of the Southwest Florida community are asked to donate new and “gently loved” dresses and accessories at collection events and convenient drop-off locations across the county.
Tickets for all events are available at LoveThatDress.org. This year’s goal is to generate an inventory of over 4,000 dresses and raise $120,000. All proceeds generated by the Love That Dress! events benefit PACE Center for Girls of Lee County.
Anyone interested in participating in a collection event in support of Love That Dress!8 may contact Allyson Ross, special projects associate for PACE Lee, at Allyson.Ross@PACECenter.org. For more information about the event, call 239-470-7548 or visit PaceCenter.org/Lee.
ABOUT PACE CENTER FOR GIRLS
PACE Center for Girls is a Florida-based, nonprofit organization and the only statewide prevention program for adolescent at-risk girls in the nation. The non-residential program targets 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. In the past year, the Lee County program provided 106 girls with education, counseling, training and advocacy, resulting in 96 percent of girls in the program having no involvement with juvenile justice within one year of leaving PACE, 93 percent improving their academic performance and 76 percent remaining in school or obtaining employment three years after leaving PACE. As a result, PACE reduces the significant long-term costs associated with teen pregnancy, substance use, unemployment and long-term economic dependency.
