“Light the Night” Whatcom Hospice Foundation Gala Auction

The 2022 Light the Night Under the Sea Gala Auction will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at the Four Points by Sheraton in Bellingham, WA.  The event will feature both live and silent auctions, a dessert dash, and an eventful program hosted by longtime Hospice friends, Gaye Godfrey and Dave Walker.

More than 420 community members participated in the last year’s virtual 2021 Light the Night in the Secret Garden Gala Auction.  Our generous community contributed $393,000 to support excellence in end-of-life care. It was truly a memorable and impactful event in support of the Whatcom Hospice program.  If you missed the livestreamed event you can watch the entire event on the Whatcom Hospice Foundation YouTube channel.
