Kendra Sutton, Chair of Love That Dress! 6, is pleased to announce that McGarvey Development has generously donated a spacious 7,600 square foot commercial building located at 13130 Westlinks Terrace in Gateway. This space will be used as this years’ LTD! 6 Dress Processing Center for the PACE Center for Girls of Lee County’s 6th Annual Love that Dress! event. Thousands of new and gently loved dresses will be collected at various dress collection parties held in the next few months leading up to the big annual Love That Dress! event in August.
Beach to ball gown to bridal, GAP to Gucci are all accepted. Ladies, children’s and plus sizes are all needed. In addition, LTD! accepts new and gently loved handbags, shoes and accessories so a great deal of space is needed to house the inventory and prepare for the event. “One of the PACE board members heard of our desperate need for a large storage space and introduced McGarvey Development to us. The location McGarvey has been so gracious to donate is ideal for this. Many volunteers work countless hours to prepare the dresses for sale. This building gives them enough space to work, improves the process and allows for efficient use of their time by being able to move about so freely. It is also a straight shot up I-75 to the Embassy Suites for the main event on August 27th,” Sutton happily stated. “We could not have been more blessed this year!”
As this location was formally an upscale fitness facility. Equipped with dressing rooms and mirrors, it will also serve as fabulous space to host the post event “Storage Unit Sale” in September.
An estimated 800 fashionistas (and a few brave men) are expected to stake their claim on these thousands of new and gently worn dresses and accessories selling for nominal prices at LTD!6 held on August 27, 2014, 5-9pm at The Embassy Suites in Estero. Guests will also enjoy the event’s popular silent auction, camaraderie, and cocktails. Major sponsors will have access to the VIP shopping offering private dressing rooms, clothing hold, express check-out service, complimentary adult beverages, hors d’oeuvres and a private selection of decadent chocolates. In addition, White House Black Market is again the Title Sponsor, offering new dresses, accessories, shoes and handbags at unbelievable bargain prices.
