The 17th annual “Light the Night” Hospice Gala Auction held Saturday, November 11, 2017 at Hotel Bellwether hosted 300 guests and raised over $438,000 for Whatcom Hospice.
Presented by Whatcom Hospice Foundation, “Light the Night on the Banks of the Seine” featured a Parisian theme —and violin music greeting guests certainly set the mood! The event included a silent auction, dessert dash, and live auction. A touching video sponsored by Peoples Bank was the focus of the “Fund-A-Need” portion of the auction, which raised over $137,000 in outright donations for the Hospice program. Mobile Bidding was included for the third year, allowing guests to bid on silent auction items prior to and during the auction using a cell phone, tablet, or computer. The dinner was sponsored by Whatcom Educational Credit Union.
Other sponsors of the event included Yorkston Oil Co, Trico Office Interiors, Icy Strait Seafoods, CSS Communications, Chmelik Sitkin & Davis, Larson & Gross CPAs & Consultants.
