PACE Believing in Girls Luncheon
This week I had the honor of photographing the PACE Center for Girls Broward, Believing in Girls Luncheon.
It was my first time at this particular event and I was overwhelmed with emotion and very proud to see our community turn out in such high numbers for such a wonderful cause. PACE Center for Girls is an academic and social services center in the state of Florida, that focuses on providing a safe and nurturing environment. The organization celebrates girls and teaches them to love themselves so they can be a fulfilled person inside and out. The luncheon is a fundraising event that highlights the girls that have gone through the program over the past 20 years and the girls that are currently enrolled in the program. This year is particularly special because it is PACE's 20th Birthday! A few brave girls got up on stage and shared with the audience what brought them to PACE and how PACE helped them deal with what was going on in their life and develop into confident, successful women. Their stories definitely brought tears to more than a few eyes, including my own. If you haven't been involved with this organization I encourage you to find out more and help in your own way.
