FORT MYERS, Fla. - March 27, 2024 - PRLog -- Pace Center for Girls, Lee has named Constance White-Davis, Deanna Hansen and Fran Myers as the honorees of its 2024 Grande Dames Tea, to be recognized for their significant impact on the community at a sold-out event on April 18 at Broadway Palm in Fort Myers.

Each year, Pace's Grande Dames Tea honors women who exemplify the organization's guiding principles and have made a significant impact through their roles in business, community and philanthropy. The inspirational event recognizes the unique perspectives and powerful insights that these women have gained throughout their life journeys, and the importance of passing this knowledge along to future generations. With the event's theme, "The Wisdom of Time – Honoring the Female Spirit," honorees will share their wisdom during a Q&A session led by the young women of Pace. Guests will also enjoy special performances by the Pace girls, and a prize drawing featuring an array of packages from local businesses.

Constance White-Davis is a beacon of educational leadership, known for being a driving force for academic excellence across the region. A proud graduate of Dunbar High School, she served 45 years as a dedicated educator before retiring as a school principal. Davis is recognized for her impact on Sarasota's most challenging schools, transforming two D-rated public schools into thriving A-rated schools during her time as principal.

Deanna Hansen is a lifelong devotee to service, whose roots run deep in Fort Myers and LaBelle. After graduating from Fort Myers High School and Edison Community College, she married her high school sweetheart, Wesley, and became a pillar of the LaBelle community. Years later, while facing the loss of her husband and their family citrus business in the same year, she channeled her resilience into co-founding a horticulture recycling facility with her children.

Fran Myers is a model of civic dedication, whose tireless efforts have made a lasting mark on Fort Myers Beach since making it her home in 1975. Alongside her late husband, Tom, Myers co-owned the Red Coconut RV Park from 1982-2023, a place that also served as a launchpad for countless annual volunteer initiatives.

Proceeds from the event benefit Pace Lee and its strength-based programs that guide Pace girls in finding their voice and achieving their potential. Programs are based on the belief that all girls and young women, regardless of race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status, should be uniquely cared for, supported and encouraged to become the best versions of themselves through a path of healing and recovery.

While the event is sold out, donations for Pace Lee are being accepted at (
