PACE Center for Girls – Lee Announces Love That Dress! 5 Year Anniversary

PACE Center for Girls Lee County is pleased to announce this year’s Love That Dress 5 Year Anniversary Event Chair and Committee.  

Kendra Sutton, a Strategic Marketing Consultant with WINK-TV, who serves on the Board of Directors for PACE Center for Girls Lee County, has been named Chair of LTD! 5. Sutton and her committee will serve to lead all fundraising efforts, dress collection parties, and the planning and execution of Love That Dress! 5. This is one of the organization’s biggest fundraisers, now celebrating its 5th anniversary.

All dresses collected will be included in the “Love That Dress! 5” event held on August 28th from 6-9 p.m. at Embassy Suites in Estero. For the fourth year, White House Black Market is the Title Sponsor. It is one of the most anticipated shopping events of the year with thousands of new and gently-loved dresses on sale to the public at incredibly low prices. In addition, various new surprises are planned at the event in honor of the 5-year milestone anniversary.

“Guests are really going to have fun and see new additions to the event this year.  It is definitely a do not miss event of the year!” says Sutton.  Tickets go on sale August 1st. All proceeds stay in our local community and benefit PACE Center for Girls Lee County. “I am honored to work with such dedicated, hard-working men and women who give their hearts, time and talents to this huge endeavor,” states Kendra Sutton.

Joining Sutton as LTD! 5 Co-Chair is Jennifer Nelson of Goodwill who handles Retail and Logistics. Allie Ross, Dress Collection Chair, is heading up the multitude of Dress Collection Parties that take place prior to the big event.  Other Committee Chairs are: Stefanie Ink-Edwards of Alliance Financial Group as the Volunteer Chair, Kelsey Thompson of Markham, Norton, Mosteller, Wright and Co., PA serving as the Silent Auction and Donations Chair, Shelly Starner-Pritt, Assistant GM at Miromar Outlets is serving as the VIP Suites and Vendor Chair, Kathy Toll of Lee Memorial Health Systems as Dress and Drop Off Collection Logistics Chair, and Jonathan Gabel of Priority Payments South Florida as the Check Out Logistics Chair.

Special thanks also goes to the following volunteer committee members: Amy Sanford (venue and logistics), Theresa Ayers of The Get Smart Web (internet-SEO), Ingrid Molina of Fuller Online Solutions (Constant Contact and Paypal), Stephanie Davis of The Florida Weekly (social media and editorial), Connie Ramos-Williams and Angeli Chin of CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing (press releases and promotions), and Margo Brewster of First Bank (volunteers and silent auction).

“We have a very talented committee that is dedicated to making the 5th Anniversary of LTD! a huge success,” says Sutton. She adds, “Our committee would be lost, however, were it not for the tireless efforts of key business professionals in our community who have stepped up to buy sponsorships, VIP suites, donate silent auction items and volunteer their services, to help ensure we have the most successful year ever,” adds Sutton.
