Benefit/Fundraiser, Community Event, Social Event

Take part in one of Bellingham's most anticipated fundraiser. The Women's Professional Network 2018 Gala & Raffle Dash is a fast-paced, fun-filled breakfast event featuring mimosas and a waffle bar while you run like mad to claim one of over a hundred prizes donated by fantastic members and local businesses. Prizes include items such as spa packages, jewelry, vacation get-a-ways, outdoor adventures, gift certificates, baskets and more. Featured this year is artwork created by local artist Kevin Coleman. Please be sure to visit KFC Art & Design on Facebook and at to view Kevin Colemanís amazing art. This year's proceeds benefit "Skookum Kids" an organization the community resource that supports foster children and families in Whatcom and Skagit Counties. Their goal is to repair the broken foster care system one child at a time and have over 200 new foster homes in Whatcom County by December 31, 2020. It costs $100 per night to care for a child in Skookum House and most kids spend about 5 days in Skookum House. So it costs about $500 per child. There are about 400 children in foster care in Whatcom County. There are about half as many foster homes in Whatcom County as there are kids in care. Become a hero and help us reach our goal of $7,500. You do not have to be a member of the WPN to attend. Purchase your tickets now and be sure to RSVP for this amazing event. Call for donations: Donate a raffle prize to benefit Skookum Kids. If you would like to donate a prize please contact Krista Jones at By donating your business will receive mentions on our WPN Social media pages, Facebook and our Member E-Blasts and online.
