Dear Women’s Organizations,
The Women’s Foundation of PBC is excited to share a coalition opportunity. PACE Center for Girls is holding their first Love That Dress! event in PBC to raise critical funds for underserved girls. The idea is simple. Organizations like yours and individuals collect dresses and donate them to PACE. Then on April 6 PACE is holding Love That Dress! Guests get to shop and raise funds for PACE programs.
In order to bring the women’s community together, the Women’s Foundation of PBC is partnering with PACE and the Gardens Mall to organize a DRESS COLLECTION PARTY on March 10 from 6-8pm at the Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. This fun event is an opportunity for the community to bring lots of dresses to donate and enjoy networking and cocktails.
Will your organization join us on March 10 as a co-sponsor of the Dress Collection Party? It’s a fun and easy way to help girls. If you want to be a nonprofit co-sponsor, please email your name and logo to Angela Clarke, the Executive Director of PACE, by Friday, February 5. Your logo will be added to the flyer and we ask that you promote the Dress Collection Party and encourage your network to attend and donate a dress.

Please send your logos by Feb 5 to:
PACE Center for Girls, Palm Beach

Thanks so much for your support.
It has been two years since the National Council of Jewish Women and the Jewish Women’s Foundation co-sponsored the symposium “Out of Bondage: Combating Sex Trafficking in South Florida” that was supported by 20 diverse groups and attended by almost 400 people!
Since then, a great deal has happened in Florida and it is time to take stock of how much progress we have made. Click here to register for this event and learn from our excellent speakers.
Today, I’m going to be sharing another The Mary Sue article, which covered the importance of the wording you use when you advertise an event.
The main subject of this article is an Orlando Elementary School created a STEM night at the local science museum geared towards boys and their mothers as a parallel to their annual Father/Daughter dance.
While this event was created with the innocent intent to offer Mother/Son bonding, it does so at the expense of girls who enjoy STEM. Even though their is a disclaimer on the flyer the school sent that they would not deny any student the ability to purchase a ticket, the fact that they explicitly advertise to boys in the flyer creates the understanding that the girls who do end up attending the event are the exception, not the norm, especially in comparison to boys.
To understand more about the problems that come from advertising a boys only STEM event and this situation with the FL elementary school, please visit the following Mary Sue article: Florida School Creates STEM Night Geared Towards Boys, Offers Dance for Girls.
