“The 6th annual Hope’s In Style celebrated the return of founder Courtney Quigley McGovern and the many people who have been touched by their involvement in the organization.
Graduating early from New York University, McGovern came back to take on the role of Executive Director of Hopes In. The organization she founded after became close to a girl she met while on a mission trip with Potter’s House, an organization that helps those living in the Guatemala City Garbage Dump. She returned home that summer hoping to build a home for the girl and her family.
