Love That Dress!9 will present the Funky Fashion Show from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday, June 21, at the Cape Coral Yacht Club, 5819 Driftwood Parkway.

It will feature entertainment, food, raffles and prizes.

The fashion show starts at 7 p.m. and features one-of-a-kind pieces created by individuals and businesses, completely from recycled/repurposed items. The entrees will strut down the runway to compete for the titles in these categories: “Runway Ready,” “FUNkiest Fashion” and “People’s Choice.” The prize includes two tickets to Love That Dress!9 and a $100 gift card. Additional fashions from Loki Designz and Razzle Dazzle Boutique will provide ready-to-wear looks.

Event admission is $40 in advance or $45 at the door with a donation of new or gently loved item. Tickets include heavy hors d’oeuvres from Big Blue Catering. Event admission includes two complimentary drinks with additional cocktails available for purchase, and $1 from every signature cocktail will go to PACE Center for Girls of Lee County. Guests can participate in silent auction packages and raffle items featuring the best Cape Coral has to offer.

Featured at all the Love That Dress!9 collection events is a car raffle, giving guests a chance to win a two-year lease on a luxurious 2018 Infiniti QX30 donated by Fort Myers Infiniti. Only 150 tickets are available for $100 each (a fundraising goal of $15,000) which will benefit PACE Center for Girls of Lee County.

“We are so thankful to Fort Myers Infiniti for this opportunity,” says PACE Lee Executive Director Meg M. Geltner. “It is our community partnerships with businesses such as Fort Myers Infiniti that help make this event such a success in support of the PACE mission.”

The winner of the car raffle will be announced during the main Love That Dress!9 event on Aug. 23, at 6 p.m. at the Embassy Suites, 10450 Corkscrew Commons Drive in Estero.
