The Barrington community is rallying together for the third consecutive year to raise funds for the thousands of people living in the Guatemala City garbage dump.
The giant fundraising effort, the Hope’s in Style Fashion Show, takes place Sunday, March 8 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Stonegate Conference Centre in Hoffman Estates.
Created by Barrington High School graduate Courtney Quigley, Hope’s in Style has given many BHS students a chance to design their own outfits based on photos taken of the garbage dump community. This year, two Barrington middle school students and students from Loyola Academy in Wilmette and Warren Township High School in Gurnee are also participating.
“We’re really branching off this year,” said Laura Mena, a BHS student and coordinator for the fashion show. “We’ve got more sponsors, more donations and more stylists.”
