“Light the Night” in the Secret Garden, a Whatcom Hospice Foundation Gala Auction

The 21st Annual “Light the Night” Gala Auction to benefit Whatcom Hospice will be held Saturday, November 13, 2021. Last year more than 430 community members participated in the 20th Anniversary Light the Night Auction, our first auction held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our generous community contributed $314,000 to support excellence in end-of-life care, Thank you! At this point, to ensure the safety of our guests, we are once again planning for a virtual event.

The event will feature both live and silent auctions! We hope you consider joining us on November 13, 2021 as we Light the Night, once again, in honor of Whatcom Hospice. More details on ticketing packages and event features coming soon.
