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 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.

Due to Covid, no refreshments will be served this year. Face masks are required.

Yule Boutique will be held on Saturday, Nov. 6th, 2021 from 9 am-3 pm at Grace Center, located on the campus of Trinity Lutheran Church, 2408 Cornwall Avenue, Bellingham. Free admission and parking.  We look forward to seeing you at this fun-filled event!

"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!
