Collide at Christmas: A Gala for Good

Ladies and gents, we invite you to be a part of our 8th annual Collide at Christmas: a Gala for Good! 

We’re delighted you’re here! We’ve packed our auction full of incredible items that we can’t wait for you to see! Some of our favorites include Pacific Northwest trips, a sunny escape to Arizona, and a luxury Cabo house getaway. You’ll also find experiences like a San Juan sightseeing boat tour, a weekend at a beautiful Lake Whatcom home, an amazing wine-tasting night, Kraken and concert tickets, wreath-making and pottery classes, and more! Plus, we’ve got some of the finest gift baskets around! We have more diverse items than ever (over 200 items✨), so you are guaranteed to find something for everyone on your Christmas list and maybe something for you too!

We are also thrilled to be returning to the Bellingham Cruise Terminal on Friday, December 8th from 7-10pm for our Gala event! This fundraising event will include a full display of the items from our online auction plus some exciting items only available LIVE at the event. On top of that, when you join us in person you’ll experience music, fun games, entertainment, photos with Santa, and stories of life change. Come on out in your holiday best and be a part of this cheery, festive night at the beautiful Bellingham Cruise Terminal. (Event will offer dessert, coffee, tea, and a no-host bar).
