Portland, OR. The William Temple House “Style & Sustainability” live-streamed fashion show raised $89,000. Proceeds benefit the mental health counseling, food pantry, and emergency assistance services of William Temple House. The event was supposed to be a fundraising luncheon, but because of the COVID-19 crisis organizers shifted to an online experience that was streamed-live on May 21st. It was the second annual fundraiser celebrating sustainable fashion, thrift store style, and the work of William Temple House.

The event featured the live fashion show, guest speaker Kelly Raynor of Modify Style, and a special message from Executive Director Carrie Hoops.

Designers featured included: Patty Armstrong, Amy Daileda of Vivid Element, Sundari of Minnie Opal and Irene Veldstra.
