By Staff | Aug 11, 2022

Pace Center for Girls, Lee will host its popular Love That Dress! fundraising event on Wednesday, Aug. 24, in Estero.

Described as the ultimate feel-good shopping spree of the year, Love That Dress! features shopping, music, silent auctions and cocktails with all proceeds benefiting Pace programs and services. The shopping event kicks off at 6 p.m. Aug. 24 at Embassy Suites by Hilton, 10450 Corkscrew Commons Drive in Estero.

Tickets went on sale Aug. 1. Admission is $30 in advance of the event and a limited number of VIP passes are available for $150. VIP shoppers will enjoy early access to the shopping and exclusive access to the VIP Suite Level, which features private dressing areas, express check-out and complimentary beverages, hors d’oeuvres and desserts.

In August 2021, the fundraiser featured a record-breaking collection of 9,000 high-quality, brand-new boutique and gently used dresses, shoes, handbags and accessories, helping raise $65,000 to support Pace Center for Girls in Lee County. Pace Lee also brought 15 Pace girls to join the Love That Dress! fun, providing a special shopping session with opportunities for the girls to dress up, shop and honor the female spirit.

Proceeds from the event provide academic programs and counseling services to girls and young women ages 11 to 18 who are working to overcome risk factors such as poverty, substance abuse, domestic violence, foster home placement, neglect, grief, incarceration of a family member, mental health and physical, emotional or sexual abuse.
