FACES Autism Auction and Diner

Families for Autism Care, Education and Support (FACES) is pleased to announce our 9th Annual Autism Auction & Benefit Dinner, April 1st starting 5:30 pm at the Bellingham Golf & Country Club. Proceeds from this event will go towards sustaining educational and recreational programs for children with autism. In 1997, FACES Northwest was formed by six families living with autism in response to a vital need for year round education and support for autistic children and their families. FACES Northwest has now grown to provide 25 children the only summer camp experience specifically for children with autism in Whatcom County. Our camp provides community involvement, independent living skills, academic enrichment and positive social relationships for autistic children and support for their families. Due to the intensive intervention and support provided at FACES, the cost for families can be challenging but the value is priceless. The cost of the program is about $5000 per student, with each requiring a one-on-one aide to participate in a summer school/camp. The auction is a major source of needed revenue. Beyond the FACES Summer Program, the organization provides emotional support, resource navigation, autism awareness events, and an Autism End of Summer Party, which serves all families in Whatcom County who have a child or children on the Autism Spectrum. With 1 in 68 children now on the autism spectrum, FACES Northwest's focus has never been more important than now. For Tickets and Info, please visit

For the First Friday Art Walk Make.Shift Gallery presents Capturing Community on the Road: Photography by Marilyn Montufar. Marilyn Montufar was born in Los Angeles, CA and received her B.F.A in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. She currently teaches photography to urban youth and is a program assistant for a teen art studio in Seattle, WA. Her work explores the transitions inherent in gentrification and human relationships through a practice of portraiture and an exploration of the evolving urban and natural landscape. Capturing Community on the Road is an ongoing photo essay with an emphasis on sharing stories about individuals who are underrepresented in mainstream culture and the arts. The exhibit consists of photographs from 2016 when Montufar traveled and photographed in various cities in the U.S. and throughout the Mexican Border to Juarez, Mexico by car for two months. She photographed in the outskirts of major metropolitan cities, such as Compton in Los Angeles, California, to capture the lives and essences of underserved and underrepresented communities -like youth, women, and immigrants. This project was supported in part from a grant from Artists Up.
