Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to help ensure hundreds of children and their families experiencing homelessness in Whatcom County have access to safe, stable, and secure housing, mental health counselors, and parenting support services.
All agents will have access to our virtual auction to bid on our carefully curated packages from Friday, March 25th until Sunday March 27th at 5pm PST from anywhere on the globe. This year’s auction is filled with great deals on vacations, staycations, one-of-a-kind experiences, art, jewelry, spa treatments, activities for kids and pets, and so much more!
Our community is undoubtedly stronger together, and that’s why we’ve decided to make this notoriously sold-out event FREE for everyone to attend this year. More than raising essential funds, year after year Hearts for Housing has been a special evening filled with love and hope for our community.
Includes a four-course dinner for TWO, one bottle of wine or two specialty cocktails, early access to the auction, and a VIP goodies!

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.

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 up 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.

*No bowling skills required, just a healthy pinch of competition for a good cause. Sign up to bowl with your family, friends, or make new friends while supporting a great cause for our local neighbors in need.

Each ticket includes 2 games of bowling, shoe rental, food, and 2 drink tickets.

We have 1 lane reserved for children 12 and under (free). Supervision is required.

Tickets are available now at
