non profit dinner and auction

On November 4th, Growing Alliances hosted its first annual Feast for Our Future Benefit at our favorite venue, the Bellingham YWCA. We prefer this venue because we strongly support the mission of the YWCA, which is to “eliminate racism and empower women” and are happy to support their mission through renting their beautiful facility.

The delicious meal served by Calypso Kitchen and local chef, Arlen Coiley, was a fusion of Caribbean and Northwest flavors, with vegetables grown by our youth employees this summer. Beverages included local beer, wine, spirits, and kombucha!

Through ticket sales, the auction, sponsorship and donations, we raised $8,521.50!! This event helped us raise 13.3% of our 2018 needs!

Our live and silent auction items were heavily experience based, because quality time together is what we all cherish during this chilly season. Our two top selling auction items were three tickets to the New Year’s Eve Seahawks Game and a Personal Gourmet Dinner for 6! Two GREAT items!
