Dear Treasured Friend,

We greatly appreciate your ongoing support, which has been essential in providing vital assistance to underprivileged children through the Beth Dillinger Foundation. Unfortunately, we've had to postpone this year's "Value Me" luncheon due to the passing of our beloved leader, Bob. We intend to resume this event in the Spring of 2025. However, as we take a temporary break from our traditional gathering, our dedication to serving the children of Pinellas County remains steadfast.

Instead of attending our fundraising event, we kindly ask for your generous contribution to support essential services such as feeding, clothing, and education to those in need. Your donation will enable us to uphold our mission, continue our scholarships, and create a lasting impact on the lives of these children. You can make contributions online with this link.

Your support is invaluable in this critical moment, and we are deeply grateful for your continued kindness and compassion. With heartfelt gratitude,

Kay Dillinger

The first "Value Me" Luncheon & Fashion Show fundraiser was held on Valentine's Day 2007 to benefit Beth's Closet and the Pace Center for Girls. The event was a resounding success with over 300 in attendance. Now into our fifteenth year, there is even more excitement and anticipation than ever before. The event is more than just raising funds for the organization. It also focuses on the accomplishments and rewarding the efforts of girls from PACE.

Those PACE girls who have demonstrated good behavior while also maintaining good grades will be selected to attend and fitted with a prom gown and new shoes donated by members of our community and the Beth Dillinger Foundation. Six girls who have made the greatest improvement have been chosen to participate in the fashion segment and will be modeling clothes and accessories from Beth's Closet!

Thanks to all our friends and supporters for making this a successful event in helping our Foundation support these deserving youth in our community.
