Pace Center for Girls, Lee County recently raised more than $21,000 during its “FUNky Fashion Show” Love That Dress! collection event on June 19.
The event was hosted by IBERIABANK and presented by the Gunterberg Charitable Foundation at the Cape Coral Yacht Club.
It featured a fashion show of one-of-a-kind recycled or repurposed pieces created by individuals and businesses and “ready to wear” looks from Razzle Dazzle, as well as food, signature cocktails, music, and a raffle drawing. More than 190 dresses were collected during the gathering to be sold at deeply discounted prices during Pace’s 11th annual Love That Dress! event on Aug. 21.
All proceeds benefit Pace Center for Girls, Lee County, which provides academic programs and counseling services to girls and young women ages 11 to 18.
