Over thirty local businessmen, "amateur chefs," cook and serve individual culinary delights in four categories: Appetizers, Sides, Mains and Desserts. Each category awards a winning chef, and the overall "Top Chef" is chosen from these, as well as a “People’s Choice Award”. Past winning dishes include Vietnamese Pho, Maker’s 46 Shrimp and Grits, and Key Lime Coconut Mousse. NO women are allowed to help in the cook-off. This annual fundraiser features live music by Tommy & The Song Byrds and includes both a silent and live auction.

On March 5th, we invited supporters in our area to PACE to show them our appreciation on Thank Pensacola Day. Mayor Ashton Hayward spoke and honored us by proclaiming March as Believing in Girls Month!


Our girls had a wonderful time traveling to Tallahassee for the annual PACE Day at the Capitol. They were able to meet with Florida Senators, Representatives and visit with PACE girls from other centers. A big THANK YOU to our board members who were able to join us in Tallahassee - we are so appreciative of your constant support!


Dreama has set the stardard of what a PACE girls should be. She exhibits all the PACE principles that guide us each day. She is doing great academically but what stands out most about Dreama is here ability to create partnerships with her PACE sisters. Dreama is always one of the first people to welcome a new face to PACE. She exhibits a warm smile and postive attitude towards everyone at the Center and is truely a GEM to our program! You go girl!

There is no better time than the Holidays here at PACE Center for Girls. The girls faces light up when it's time to start decorating the classroom doors, Christmas tree and most importantly their Christmas shoe boxes. 

This year we were overwhelmed by the amount of donations we received to fill the girls show boxes with!

Laurie, our Executive Director said it best, "Who needs Dasher, Dancer or even Rudolph to "deliver" for Christmas when we have our board, community, and PACE friends involved?"

The girls were estatic when they receive their gifts before they left for break, and we were so excited to watch them open them.

The people who gave really made 2014 the best PACE Christmas EVER!



Through our partnership with the Gulf Coast Diplomacy Council we were able to host a visit by some of what we now consider “our friends” from Brazil.

This experience was so meaningful to all – our guests, the staff and the girls.  These type experiences are what makes PACE so awesome.

Our girls got to connect on a personal level with people from another country – that never would have happened for them had they not been here.

Thanks for supporting PACE and our girls allowing growth and learning to happen every PACE day.
