Saturday, March 8th, students held the annual PACE Service Learning fundraiser!  A “Creative Slam” that included a talent show, bake sale, and silent auction.  Students each had a job to do in preparing for, and carrying out the event.  This year the fundraiser benefits the Joy of Success organization - http://www.joyofsuccess.org/

The event was the most successful Creative Slam in PACE’s history, raising almost $4,000!!  Congratulations PACE students- your hard work paid off!
