Last night, I had the sincere pleasure and joy to attend the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services of Whatcom County (DVSAS) annual auction fundraiser with my incredible family. That’s Erik (or as we affectionately call him ‘ELF’), Otion’s retail store manager, me, my fabulous husband Chris and my sister in law (and frequent hiking buddy), Cheriss. DVSAS supports individuals affected by domestic violence and sexual assault and provides community education. Last year, in Whatcom County, they provided services to over 3,000 people. We were thrilled to be able to support such a worthy organization.
