You're invited to PACE's annual Believing in Girls Luncheon on February 25, 2015 from 12:00p-1:00p at the West Palm Beach Marriott located at 1001 Okeechobee Boulevard. This is a free event for people to learn more about our program. The luncheon is a fundraiser and guests will be asked to consider making a contribution. We want people to come and find out about the great programs offered at PACE and, more importantly, hear first hand from PACE girls the positive difference PACE has made in their lives. We limit this event to one hour and during the luncheon, people will be informed and inspired by the PACE success story. So much can be accomplished in a short time period and it makes a tremendous difference to PACE.
Seating for the luncheon is limited. We have a few openings left for individuals that might be interested in serving as Table Captains who invite guests to fill a table of 10. Table Captains are people who are inspired by PACE Center for Girls and who can relay their passion and belief in our mission to others in the community. If interested in serving as a Table Captain or attending the Believing in Girls Luncheon, please contact Angela Clarke at 561.472.1990 ext 1955 or [email protected].

Giving to PACE means
giving to GIRLS!
Sponsor a Girl Description
Breakfast: Many of the girls that ride the bus may leave their homes at 6:00am and transfer buses several times to be able to arrive at school on time. We ensure each girl has something to eat when entering the building in the morning. Annually we project needing $4,000 a year for this need. Your sponsoring a girl gift of $250.00 supplies a light breakfast for one girl every morning for a year.
School Supplies: As in any school adoptions of new textbooks and related supplies are necessary to keep the curriculum current. Our book budget is $5,000 per year. Classroom supplies such as paper, pens and notebooks average $4,000 per year. We want each girl to have quality supplies and materials leaving no additional barriers to their academic success. You can help us make sure that happens for one girl a year with your commitment to sponsor a girl.
Incentives: Assisting our girls with developing personal skills for success means celebrating with them when they do. Our behavior management system measures their new behaviors and allows them to “buy” things they need or want with points they earn. One girls success incentives for a year are included in your sponsor a girl gift.
Uniforms: 5,000 a year is budgeted for use from our community support dollars to supply each girl with PACE T-shirts. Although the girls like their individuality wearing a PACE T-shirt takes the pressure off of not having name brand clothes and deciding how to dress for school. You can supply 5 PACE shirts for one girl as part of your $250.00 gift.
What you are giving –
What she is getting –
Your gift makes a difference in the life of a girl every day!
