2023 Fundraising Campaign
My name is Steve Paul. Many of you know me as Bernie!
I am the Chief Elf Officer, Executive Director, and President of Northwest North Pole Adventures.
We are asking for your generous support to ensure our 27th Spokane Fantasy Flight delivers the love, magic, and memory-making moments at the North Pole for another sixty area under-served children.
Unfortunately, for the children of Spokane Fantasy Flight, anxiety, stress, and the feeling of not belonging due to the misfortune of homelessness can consume their lives. The necessary levels of security and stability that every child deserves are often denied to these beloved children.
Through the kindness of your support, we will continue to create a magical day of joy, ensuring each child feels treasured and important. Our day of North Pole festivities is intended to remind every child that THEY are the magic we “believe” in.
Our volunteer elves, over 250 in number, discover that they too, receive the gift of a JOYFUL day in their own life’s journey.
While we would be honored to deliver this community-supported gift to every child, our mission is to invite children who are of greatest need from Social Agencies in our area. Visit our Agencies link to learn more about the agencies we support.
As we enter our annual cycle of procurement for the big day, as with everyone these days, we are navigating the challenges of rapidly rising costs. We invite and appreciate your partnership to share in our mission of bringing magic and joyful memories to these specially chosen children.

Annual Donor Celebration DISCONTINUED!
Northwest North Pole Adventures’
has been discontinued!
This event was created in 2005 on the Friday evening before the Spokane Fantasy Flight to provide our existing and potentially new donors and supporters a peek into the magic of our North Pole experience created with their support.
In the board’s full review, we evaluated these factors:
- Escalating costs with falling attendance
- Facility and safety risks
- Volunteer resource constraints
Our new offering will be private guided tours of the North Pole for our donors (existing and potentially new) by request only.
These tours will enable discussions on every aspect of our event and the planning necessary around the child’s journey and experience. Please use the CONTACT US! feature to submit your request!
We appreciate your understanding.
