Whatcom Give-A-Thon will feature live music, treats and Santa

The fourth annual Whatcom Give-A-Thon will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 29, at the Bellingham Elks Lodge, 710 Samish Way.

The fundraising event will feature live holiday music, treats and Santa Claus.

The Whatcom Give-A-Thon is organized by the Whatcom County Association of Realtors.

Thirty local nonprofit groups will be present at the free event to outline their service to the community and list their specific needs, according to Kelly Jeffrey, a member of WCAR’s Give-A-Thon committee.

“The Whatcom Give-A-Thon has raised more than $100,000 for local nonprofit groups in the past three years,” Jeffrey said, in a press release. “This has been another challenging year for our community, so we encourage everyone to give as they are able to these local and respected charities.”

The Whatcom Give-A-Thon also is supported by the Bank of the Pacific, the Bellingham Herald, Cascade Radio Group, Cicchitti’s Pizza, KVOS TV and Starbucks.
