Two, fun-filled events that support those in need in our community

Each year Assistance League of Bellingham holds two annual fundraising events.  Our Yule Boutique is held in the Fall.  Spring brings our Fashion Show and Luncheon.  Proceeds from these fun-filled events help fund our five community programs that positively impact the lives of children and adults in Whatcom County.


Yule Boutique - first weekend in November

Our Yule Boutique is an annual stop on any holiday shopper’s list!  Assistance League volunteer members and friends work year-round to create unique handcrafted gifts for the Boutique. Also featured are holiday decorations, soup mixes and vintage collectibles & linens.

An assortment of delicious baked goods are made the week of the event.  Our famous 15-foot long table, loaded with cookies, candies, and cakes is hugely popular.

Our upcoming Yule Boutique will be held Saturday, Nov. 2nd, 2024 at Grace Center, Trinity Lutheran Church, 2408 Cornwall Avenue, Bellingham. We look forward to seeing you at this fun-filled event!

A very successful “Struttin into Spring” fashion show event was held Saturday, April 20, 2024.

Assistance League of Bellingham celebrated the coming of Spring with fashions from stylish boutiques in Whatcom County.  This event is a seasonal hit with the socially minded, well-dressed set, drawing an attendance of over 200+ annually.

This year’s fashion show was held at the Bellingham Golf and Country Club.  The day’s events included a delectable lunch, runway fashion show and the opportunity to buy raffle tickets for fabulous gift baskets. A highlight of the festivities was the ever-popular shopping at the Boutique Marketplace featuring high quality items from our Thrift & Gift Shop.

We are happy to report that the successful event was completely sold out! Thank you to the community for your support.
