Portland, OR. William Temple House celebrated sustainable fashion and thrift store style at its fundraising luncheon on June 19th at the Multnomah Athletic Club. KGW’s Cassidy Quinn showed off her thrift store finds during the benefit’s fashion show. Special guest, thrift store fashionista Jessi Arrington, entertained over 300 guests with a presentation about how thrift store style helps the planet. The benefit, called Style & Sustainability for Social Good, raised over $89,000 to further the mission of William Temple House to provide social services, mental health counseling, and spiritual care to individuals and families in need.
