Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.”

Jun 20 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Van Gogh for the Youth - An Art Auction benefit for Growing Alliances @ Lightcatcher Museum

Garden of Life, Studio UFO – Trish Harding and friends, and Growing Alliances get together to create a fundraiser for the At-risk youth of Whatcom County.
Growing Alliances provides youth professional development training and gardening skills to foster responsibility and independence. Using mankind’s oldest way of bonding and creating strong friendships that carry through life, youth are taught to grow, cook and share food.
Join us for an evening of classical music, friends, friendly upbidding, Appys and beverages served.
Studio UFO, Trish Harding and friends, have created beautiful art pieces in a theme of After Van Gogh, for the Youth for this exciting live auction.
Garden of Life, Bellingham WA is a movement which supports gardening as a way to build community. Bern Jacqueline was inspired with Trish, to create the theme; Vincent Van Gogh was a struggling artist, a marginalized individual, similarly we respect the value put in by the donors, the artists and commit to supporting their effort by returning 30% of final sales to them.
Our goal of raising $18,000 will cover the employment at minimum wage for youth to grow food this season, 2019.
