Pace Center for Girls, Lee is bringing fun and fashion to the stage with the return of its popular FUNky Fashion Show, to be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 9 at the Moose Lodge #2199, located at 155 Santa Barbara Blvd. N. in Cape Coral.
Featuring the creativity of Southwest Florida, the FUNky Fashion Show showcases one-of-a-kind fashions made completely from recycled and repurposed items created by individual artists and businesses in Lee County. Razzle Dazzle will also present a selection of “ready to wear” looks from its Cape Coral-based boutique. In addition to the show, guests can enjoy food, cocktails, music, a silent auction and prize drawings throughout the evening.
The fundraising event supports Pace Lee in providing girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy. Pace 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. Through Pace Lee, 100% of students improved their academic performance, 96% had no involvement with the juvenile justice system within one year of exiting the program and 89% were either in school or gainfully employed after leaving Pace Lee.
A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are available for the FUNky Fashion Show, including the Presenting sponsorship at $5,000, Fashionista sponsorship at $2,500 and the VIP Table sponsorship at $1,000, all of which include an 8-top table, recognition in event promotions and during the event, and a celebrity table waiter for the evening of the show. Reserved tables ranging from $300 to $500 are available for groups of four to eight people.
Eco-friendly fashionistas can also enter a dress in the FUNky Fashion Show competition. Entries are $100 per person and include event admission, food and a complimentary drink.
