PACE Center for Girls – Menu of Giving

Posted on: April 1st, 2021 by brent

Pace Center for Girls

Despite not hosting our annual crowd-pleasing amateur chef competition, we wanted to uphold the spirit of Men Who Cook with our Menu of Giving, proudly presented by The Bear Family Foundation. 

Each year, we ask our event guests to “Raise A Paddle” to sponsor a Pace girl. These dollars make it possible for Pace to give the girls those “extras” outside of just academic and therapeutic support.

This year, you have the opportunity to select HOW you want to support Pace girls! 

It may not be as filling as tasting 40 different bites but we promise that it will be FULLfilling as you help change the lives of young women in our community.

We look forward to seeing you at our event in April 2022!
