Light the Night at the Grand Ole Opry” Raises $454,000 for Whatcom Hospice

The 18th Annual “Light the Night” Hospice Gala Auction held November 10, 2018 at Four Points by Sheraton raised a record $454,000 for Whatcom Hospice! Over 370 guests attended the sold-out auction, which was organized by Whatcom Hospice Foundation and presented by Birch Equipment Rental & Sales.

The Nashville-themed event featured live music, a sit-down dinner sponsored by WECU, and live and silent auctions. Tammy Yorkston and Lesa Boxx served as this year’s co-chairs.

The “Fund-A-Need” portion of the event raised more than $126,000 in outright donations, thanks to a touching video sponsored by Peoples Bank. The popular dessert dash sponsored by First Federal Bank raised an additional $35,500. Please visit our corporate partners page for a complete list of sponsors.
