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.


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.

Yule Boutique will be held Saturday, Nov. 4th, 2023 from 9 am-3 pm at Grace Center, located at Trinity Lutheran Church, 2408 Cornwall Avenue, Bellingham. Free admission and parking.  We look forward to seeing you at this fun-filled event!

We are sorry to announce that our “Struttin into Spring” fashion show event, is postponed until Spring of 2024.

Assistance League of Bellingham celebrates 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.

It will be held at the Four Points by Sheraton Bellingham Hotel and Conference Center. 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 is the ever-popular shopping at the Boutique Marketplace featuring high quality items from our Thrift & Gift Shop. Request your tickets early as this event sells out quickly!

Enrichment Scholarship Winners Provide Music at Yule Boutique

This year’s Yule Boutique shoppers were entertained with beautiful music by last year’s Enrichment Scholarship Winners. Performing on cello and violin were Alma, Lilly and Maddie from Whatcom Middle School.
