Get your green on and join Meals on Wheels and More for their 3rd Annual Irish Dinner and Silent Auction on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal. Enjoy a traditional Irish Dinner of corned beef and cabbage provided by Haggen Market Street Catering (vegetarian option available), Celtic music by Drowsy Maggie, a variety of local brews from Boundary Bay Brewery, a silent auction, a photo booth, and more. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at the Bellingham Senior Activity Center, Village Books – Fairhaven, the Community Food Co-op, and at BrownPaperTickets.com.

All proceeds of the event benefit Meals on Wheels and More, a program of the Whatcom Council on Aging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Meals on Wheels and More supports the health and independence of local seniors by providing freshly prepared, nutritionally balanced lunches at 12 senior centers and senior residences in Whatcom and San Juan Counties, and by delivering “Meals on Wheels” to homebound seniors throughout the two counties. Despite flat levels of federal funding, the demand for Meals on Wheels by the area’s most vulnerable seniors has increased by over 40% in just 3 years. “A successful Irish Dinner fundraiser will help ensure that all local seniors who need the Program’s services will receive them without being placed on a waiting list,” says Program Director, Julie Meyers.
