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.
Two, fun-filled events that support those in need in our community
Yule Boutique - first weekend in November
Due to the Pandemic, no plans have been made for Yule Boutique 2021. As soon as a decision is made, it will be advertised on this website.
Our Yule Boutique was an annual stop on any holiday shopper’s list! Assistance League volunteer members and friends worked year-round to create unique handcrafted gifts for the Boutique. Also featured were soup mixes, holiday decorations and vintage collectibles & linens.
An assortment of delicious baked goods were made the week of the event. Our famous 15-foot long table, loaded with cookies, candies, and cakes was very popular.
This festive day included complimentary refreshments which were available to all shoppers while they relaxed and enjoyed music provided by Assistance League’s Enrichment Scholarship program recipients.
In the past, Yule Boutique has been held on the first Saturday in November of each year at Grace Center, located on the campus of Trinity Lutheran Church, 2408 Cornwall Avenue, Bellingham. There was free admission and parking. We look forward to the time when we can once again, hold our annual Yule Boutique.
"Struttin’ into Spring” annual fashion show event
Due to the Pandemic, our Fashion Show & Luncheon 2021 has been cancelled.
In the past, our “Struttin into Spring”, a chic fashion show was scheduled for a Saturday in April. Assistance League of Bellingham celebrated the coming of Spring with fashions from stylish boutiques in Whatcom County. This event became a seasonal hit with the socially minded, well-dressed set, drawing an attendance of over 200+ annually.
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. It was suggested to request tickets early as this event sold out quickly!
