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 four community programs that positively impact the lives of children and adults in Whatcom County.


Yule Boutique - first weekend in November

Our Yule Boutique is now 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 soup mixes, holiday decorations and vintage collectibles & linens.

An assortment of delicious baked goods is made the week of the event.  You won’t want to miss our very popular and famous 15-foot long table loaded with cookies, candies, and cakes.

This festive day includes complimentary refreshments which are available to all shoppers while relaxing and enjoying music provided by Assistance League’s Enrichment Scholarship program recipients.

Yule Boutique, 2020 will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7th, 9 am – 3 pm at Grace Center, located on the campus of Trinity Lutheran Church, 2408 Cornwall Avenue, Bellingham. Free admission and parking.  You won’t want to miss it…it’s a very popular event!
