PACE Center for Girls, Lee County recently raised $19,400 during ‘FUNky Fashion Show,’ a Love That Dress! collection event, on June 20, hosted by IBERIABANK at Cape Coral Yacht Club.

The FUNky Fashion Show featured one-of-a-kind pieces made completely from recycled or repurposed items.

Marie C. Dyer was this year’s featured designer who’s “Charting the Course for Success” creation, inspired by the PACE Girls, won People’s Choice. Vector & Ink’s “Southwest Florida Destination” dress won both FUNkiest Fashion and Runway Ready.

Nearly 125 dresses were collected during the gathering to be sold at discounted prices during Lee County’s 10th Love That Dress! event on Aug. 22. All proceeds will benefit PACE programs and services, which impact girls and young women ages 11 to 18.
