PEGGY HOAG REAL ESTATE Gives Back!
Here at PEGGY HOAG REAL ESTATE, we’ve been giving back to the Portland community for years. Let’s take a look at a few of the great causes that are so important to us and we’re proud to support.
Abby’s Closet is an Oregon-based nonprofit with a great mission. They provide free formal wear to young women for proms and other special events. Each year they host a huge prom dress giveaway at the Convention Center. PEGGY HOAG REAL ESTATE is proud to be an official drop-off location for Abby’s Closet.
Our very own Nannette Troutman wrote about why Abby’s Closet is such a special cause to her:
When I was 16, I went on my first date to my junior prom. My family didn’t have money for a prom dress, so I made mine from a Simplicity pattern. In Home Economics class, I worked very hard making an A-line dress of pink dotted swiss that had short sleeves with white daisy edging.
When my date and I got to the prom, all of the other girls were in beautiful, formal dresses. I felt very out of place. What should have been a rite of passage fell very short, and I was embarrassed by my homemade gown. I never went to another prom.

Classic Wines Auction
The Willamette Valley is a wine lover’s dream come true. Pinot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon blanc, and Syrah are just a few of the varietals that thrive in our area’s unique terroir.
PEGGY HOAG REAL ESTATE knows wine and has helped many wine aficionados and oenophiles discover the vineyard properties of their dreams. If you’re looking to buy or sell a vineyard property, let’s talk!
For years, the Classic Wines Auction has been recognized as one of the nation’s top charity wine auctions. It’s also one of the longest-running charity wine auctions around. Since 1982, the Classic Wines Auction has raised almost $50 million for great local causes.
We love this event so much that every year we donate a glamping weekend package to the auction!
William Temple House Wall of Wine
The William Temple House, located in NW Portland, is one of the area’s most revered nonprofits. Since 1965, the William Temple House has provided low cost (and free) services to Portland’s most at-risk families and individuals.
PEGGY HOAG REAL ESTATE is proud to donate to the Wall of Wine for their annual fundraiser and auction. For just $25, fundraiser attendees can pick a mystery bottle of wine. Who knows what treasures you’ll find?! This $25 donation is enough to help provide a warm winter coat to a child in need.
