Come join in the spirit of giving! The Whatcom Give-a-thon – A Party in Honor of Giving is happening today Friday Dec 10 from 12-8pm. downtown at O’Donnell’s Bellingham Flea Market, 1522 Cornwall Avenue. 45 local charities will be there accepting donations and sharing their stories. Come support your favorite charity and meet the wonderful people that make it happen.
There will be great local music, including high school choirs and local singer/songwriters. Socialize with great people, and have a cup of coffee and a cookie on the house. You can even enter the raffle for some fabulous door prizes. It promises to be the warm fuzzy event of the season.
The annual Whatcom Give-a-thon was created in 2009 by the Whatcom County Association of Realtors, the Whatcom Volunteer Center, and several other local businesses and non profits. The event allows the public to connect with local charities in a fun way, and also for the charities to better connect with each other and share ideas and resources.
The first Give-a-thon in 2009 raised approximately $52,000 for local charities!
