Getting into the spirit of the Christmas season will also mean contributing to a good cause this weekend.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m., attendees of the black-tie event will enjoy hors d’oeuvres and dancing while bidding to purchase the dozen decorated trees, nine wreaths and more than 20 other auction items donated by the community and Whidbey Island businesses.
