The Lopez Island Hospice and Home Support’s ninth Annual Jingle Bell Dinner and Auction is Saturday, Nov. 25 at the Lopez Center. It’s your chance to bid on some of the finest our community has to offer.

This year, artists, businesses, and residents have generously donated more than 25 amazing items to raise money for the organization. Just a few of the offerings:

Look to bid on a Westport Beach Weekend, monthly floral arrangements by Lilies in the Valley, and a wood sculpture by T.J. Anderson. If you’ve never flown to Seattle on Kenmore Air, now’s your chance to bid on a flight. And we have a gift certificate from Ursa Minor, not to mention massages, meats and produce, and beautiful jewelry.

Whet your appetite with an Italian Dinner with Kim and Ciro Pasciuto, a real Texas barbecue dinner by Martha and Brian Gooding, and a pie a month from our own Pie Queen, Jan Sundquist.

Of special interest is a pastel by Lopez artist Christa Malay – a beautiful aerial view of Lopez Sound.

New this year, are lighted lantern centerpieces created by Elizabeth Landrum, Judy Dern, and Kathleen Pallansch, with help from Debbie Collins. Available for sale at the dinner, the centerpieces will add holiday cheer to any décor.

“Lopez has been so generous and happy to help,” said Fons Wynen, co-chair of the auction. “The Jingle Bell Dinner is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We’re hoping people really ramp up the bidding to raise money for Hospice and Home Support.”

Proceeds from the dinner and silent auction will benefit Lopez Island Hospice and Home Support.

For 20 years, Lopez Island Hospice and Home Support has provided hospice and home support services and resources to the Lopez community experiencing illness, injury, and/or loss. All services are free of charge.
