Events

Handbags for Housing

Thursday June 6th, from 5PM-9PM Barkley Village Green.


Lydia Place, along with event partners Barkley Village, Whatcom County Association of Realtors, Labels Consignment and Wise Buys Thrift Store present Handbags for Housing! Bellingham’s largest ladies (gentlemen welcome) night, fashion show extravaganza and handbag exchange. Hundreds of handbags, a beauty bar, cocktail and wine vendors, along with local boutiques and retailers all come together under one (tented) roof, to showcase the sheer power of local fashion and philanthropy. Tickets go on sale April 1st, with all proceeds benefiting Lydia Place services working to break the cycle of homelessness for this generation and the next.

This years’ runway theme is Circus with the fabulous Shannon Day as ringmaster!

Bowling for Beds

Join in the fun at this charitable bowling event by participating on 1 of 5 “KingPin” teams competing to become the ultimate champion at this year’s Bowling for Beds event! A fun, family-friendly bowling event to help raise emergency hotel funds for Lydia Place. Sign up to bowl with your family, friends, or make new friends while supporting a great cause for our local neighbors in need.

Last year Lydia Place spent over $30,000 in hotel expenses to remove families with children and expectant mothers from inhabitable and/or dangerous living conditions. Although these emergency hotel stays are not allocated in our budget, we felt we had to step and do the right thing. We need your support to help build our emergency fund for 2019, so when a crisis involving children arises, we can keep saying “Yes,” and be a immediate lifeline to families in need.
