Evening of elegance

Wine Reception, Silent Auction, Dinner & Live Auction

Evening of Elegance is Walla Walla Community Hospice’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event is held annually at the historic Marcus Whitman Hotel and Conference Center. Incredible items are donated by generous supporters while many other supporters come together to celebrate with gourmet food and award winning wine. Festivities include a silent auction, live auction, raffles, spin-the-bottle wine game, and photo booth.

This year's theme was Viva la Vida (Live the Life). A brief, yet inspiring presentation focused on examples of "living your best life”, even during hospice care. The theme was a very subtle nod to 60's era Vegas.

A self-guided tour of lovely gardens featuring art & music

The Pond and Garden Tour provides a day for Walla Walla residents to take a peek at the gardens, ideas and hard work of others. It has grown into a tradition for many residents who come back year after year. Tour goers discover ideas that they can use themselves, and hopefully get in the mood to start digging around in their own gardens! On the self-guided tour, properties may be visited in any order that you choose. Your ticket includes a map and descriptions of all the gardens.

Each of the gardens offers a distinctive style reflecting the tastes and personalities of the homeowners. Some of the gardens are small, quaint and eclectic, while others are large, expansive with mountain views. We showcase a wide variety of styles and locations to appeal to all tastes.

In addition to the gardens, tour goers can shop for garden art from northwest vendors, listen to live music, observe artists in the gardens, learn from Master Gardeners and enjoy refreshments along the way.

Tree of Life

The Tree of Life Ceremony and fundraiser is a long standing Hospice tradition. During the months of November and December, individuals may dedicate a light on the tree in memory of or in honor of a loved one. The name of the honored person is printed on a paper ornament and placed on the tree. The names are also inscribed in the Tree of Life book. In December we host the Tree of Life Ceremony which includes a reading of all the names in the Tree of Life book followed by a candle lighting ceremony with music and refreshments. This is a wonderful way to memorialize loved ones during the holiday season.

Commemorative ornaments from previous years can be purchased for $10. Please contact the office to find out which years are available.
