Love That Dress! is an annual campaign soliciting donations of new and gently loved dresses, handbags, shoes and accessories. A series of social events helps build inventory, and the campaign culminates with what's described as "the ultimate feel-good shopping spree" in which supporters enjoy an evening of shopping, music, cocktails and a silent auction.
Proceeds from Love That Dress! events support Pace Center for Girls' programs and services, which assist girls ages 11 to 18 who have multiple risk factors impacting their academic achievement, including family income, substance abuse, domestic violence, foster home placement, neglect, grief, incarceration of a family member and physical, emotional or sexual abuse.
In August 2018, more than 450 fashionistas and community supporters attended the 10th annual Love That Dress! fundraiser, helping raise more than $157,000 to support Pace Center for Girls, Lee County.
