Thursday, May 9, 2019 - The Riley brothers put on their brightest pair of pants and joined PACE Collier for an inaugural event to celebrate the Notable Men in Southwest Florida as they model their Crazy Pantz for a good cause.
Twenty of our community’s most distinguished men walked the runway, in hopes of generating the highest bid to benefit PACE Center for Girls.
PACE provides girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, advocacy and training. Pace programs in Immokalee enable young women to complete their education, build self-esteem, and develop relationship skills.
