Laugh Your Tail Off Comedy Show and Auction @ Tulalip Resort and Casino

The NOAH Center’s Laugh Your Tail Off benefit comedy show and auction at the Tulalip Resort and Casino is gaining steam, and for our 6th year we are thrilled to have booked comedian Steve Trevino. This year’s show is shaping up to be the best yet, and would love to have you be a part of it! Doors open at 6pm and we will take our seats at 7:15 for dinner when the silent auction closes.

The NOAH Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to stopping the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable and treatable homeless dogs and cats. Since opening in 2003, we have conducted over 103,025 spay/neuter operations and have helped more than 37,000 animals find their forever home. The average cost per animal rescued through NOAH is $650. Events like Laugh Your Tail Off ensure we have the funds to continue saving animals in need.

Benefit for the Bellingham Food Bank @ Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship

On Saturday, April 13th, the Social & Environmental Justice Committee of the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship will sponsor songwriter Linda Allen, daughters Jen and Kristin Allen-Zito, and a host of special musical friends in a concert in celebration of Linda’s arriving at the half century mark as a working musician. In addition to an evening of wonderful music, every dime after expenses will benefit the Bellingham Food Bank.

The concert will be held at the Bellingham Unitarian Church, 1207 Ellsworth in Bellingham. Tickets are a suggested donation of $15.00 and are available at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please consider bringing non-perishable food items for the Food Bank. Dessert will be served after the concert.

Linda has been a working musician beginning in 1969, writing and singing powerful songs of hope and history, spirituality and death, love and whimsy in a style the writer Studs Terkel once referred to as “true and delightful”. In this concert, she will be celebrating the release of her eleventh and twelfth recordings as well as sharing a retrospective of her life’s work…so far.

Linda’s special guests, in addition to daughters Jen and Kristin, to date include Janet Stecher and Susan Lewis (Rebel Voices), Phil Heaven, Jeff Wilson, Tom Rawson, Jan Peters, Laura Smith, Chad Petersen, Kitty King, Sonny Lowe, Scott Slaba, Meryle Korn, Marie Eaton and Ellen van der Hoeven.
