LAW Advocates Dinner and Auction @ Settlemyer Hall

Our annual Lawyers Take Orders Dinner and Auction fundraiser is October 18th. This event raises nearly a quarter of our budget, helping us provide critical legal assistance to more than 1,300 low-income families and individuals each year in Whatcom County.

LAW Advocates is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in downtown Bellingham. We have provided free civil legal for over 30 years. With the help of generous donors like you, we are able to offer our Tenant Clinic, helping those facing eviction or unlivable conditions. We are able to assist domestic violence victims and survivors to obtain court-ordered parenting plans, allowing them to keep themselves and their children safe. We are able to maintain Street Law, a drop-in legal advice clinic at the Bellingham Public Library and Whatcom Community College that allows those with any kind of civil legal question to speak with an attorney for free. These programs are provided through the tireless work of volunteer attorneys, paralegals and students, as well as that of our small but dedicated staff.

Kid Pickford: Moomins and the Winter Wonderland @ Pickford Film Center

Pickford Film Center is excited for the fun to continue with Kid Pickford, a monthly family-friendly film series for kids at the Pickford for $1. Formally named Pickford Family Matinees, this series shows a classic family film each month on Saturdays at 1 pm. From an epic children’s quest spanning 50 years, rousing debates for the history books, some mysterious mythical cursed rabbits, gifted aspiring ballet stars, a quest to secure a stolen book, and a special winter in Moomin Valley, this year’s Kid Pickford slate is full of excitement and a joy to watch!

No matter if you’re 30 and want to see a classic favorite childhood film, have kids, want to host a birthday party, or simply want a relaxed and enjoyable Saturday afternoon, Kid Pickford is always a lot of fun. Bring your kids, bring friends or a date, and catch a classic Saturday afternoon movie.

Closing our Kid Pickford 2019 slate is Moomins and the Winter Wonderland (2017). The winter seems extraordinary in Moomin Valley, so Moomintroll decides to stay awake instead of having his typical winter slumber. Moomintroll discovers that strange creatures wander amidst the snowdrifts in the midwinter darkness, and all of the new hints imply that an eccentric guest is soon to arrive. This new guest is called Christmas, and an astounded Moomintroll learns to experience the true meaning of this wonderful holiday.
