CHICAGO (WLS) -- A high school trip has now inspired a years-long passion for two women from Barrington.
"I actually got an internship when I was 16 years old and I was in Guatemala City," said Courtney McGovern. "Just being there taught me such a huge lesson about how dignified housing is a human right."
That trip inspired Courtney and her twin sister Ashley to do something. They formed a fundraiser called "Hope's In Style," a fashion show.
"I knew after Courtney came back we had to do something," said Ashley Quigley.
Now, the sisters have a nonprofit called HOPE'S IN, which works to empower families living in Guatemala City.
This weekend, the group is hosting its annual Hope's In Style fundraiser. You can learn more here.
