What is Love That Dress!?

Love That Dress! is the ultimate feel-good shopping spree of the year benefiting PACE Center for Girls. This year, Palm Beach County’s inaugural LTD! will take place on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 (location to be determined).

An estimated 300 fashionistas (and a few brave men) are expected to stake their claim on a thousand new and gently worn dresses for nominal prices. Guests will also enjoy a silent auction, camaraderie and cocktails. Major sponsors will have access to the VIP section offering private dressing rooms, clothing hold, express check-out service, complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and a private selection of decadent chocolates.

Who benefits from the proceeds?

PACE Center for Girls, Inc. provides girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy. PACE is the only non-residential gender specific, not-for-profit intervention and prevention program for at risk girls in Palm Beach County. PACE Palm Beach opened its doors in 1996, and has since offered over 1,700 girls the unique opportunity to develop into healthy and positive individuals while furthering their education, developing their confidence and finding their voice.

How can I help?

There are several fun ways to support Love That Dress!

  • *Donations of new or gently worn dresses are accepted at collection parties leading up to the main event. In November, several drop-off locations throughout Palm Beach County will also be receiving dresses. All kinds of dresses are suitable from sundresses, to formal gowns to bridal!
  • *Donations of specialty goods or valuable gift cards for products and services are also needed for the silent auction. Examples include jewelry, hotel stays, beauty baskets and gift cards for cosmetic services, retailers and restaurants. Items favorable to women are preferred. Donations of this type may qualify for an in-kind sponsorship. To help, contact Sandy Salazar at sandy.salazar@pacecenter.org.
  • *Anyone can host a dress collection party to spread the word, collect dresses and raise funds for PACE. Collection parties are organized by the host, yet PACE may be able to assist with guidance, volunteer support and spreading the word. Contact Angela Clarke at angela.clarke@pacecenter.org.

PACE's annual Believing in Girls Luncheon is scheduled for February 24, 2016 from 12:00p-1:00p at the West Palm Beach Marriott located at 1001 Okeechobee Boulevard. We are looking for individuals that might be interested in serving as Table Captains. 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.

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. 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 angela.clarke@pacecenter.org.

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.
