Over 400 men, women, PACE girls and honored guests attended the Annual “Throw a Girl a Lifeline” luncheon and fundraiser at the Naples Grande Beach Resort on March 3, raising over $95,000 for PACE Center for Girls, Collier at Immokalee.

“Thank you to all of our supporters and to everyone who contributed to making this years ‘Throw a Girl a Lifeline’ Luncheon a tremendous success. With the community’s help, we raised over $95,000 towards providing our PACE girls and young women an opportunity for a better future. I’m very proud to be a part of PACE and our amazing community,” said Pat Patterson, who chaired the event, serves on the PACE Board of Directors, and is a Broker Associate at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty in Naples.

One of the highlights of the luncheon was the presentation of the Annual PACESetter Award to Stock Development, as well as the presentation of the Volunteer of the Year Award to Melissa Speach of The Players Club & Spa at Lely Resort for her ongoing support.
