Foundation raises more than $128,00 for student scholarships and college programs at sold-out gala

Post Date:05/18/2016 9:42 am

The Whatcom Community College Foundation raised more than $128,000 for student scholarships and college programs at their sold-out gala fundraiser over the weekend. The Magic of Whatcom event was held at the Hotel Bellwether Ballroom, and included a dessert dash, raffle, live auction and performance by Bellingham magician John Walton. Phillips 66, a longtime donor to the college, was the presenting sponsor.

The real magic is the power of education to transform lives, coupled with the open-hearted generosity of friends who gave to support our students. Thank you to those who helped make the magic happen!
