Holiday Sculpture Fund

The Holiday Sculpture Fund is a gift to our community from renowned sculptor Georgia Gerber and her husband, Randy Hudson.

In their words:

We are excited to bring you our 25th annual Holiday Sculpture. This is the seventh year we have collaborated with Whidbey Community Foundation (WCF), and collectively we have raised over $150,000 from sculpture sales. We thank WCF for all they do. We also thank the Rob Schouten Gallery for helping us with distribution once again, Ben Cordsen for his skilled pewter casting, and especially all the generous collectors who have supported this effort over the years.

What started out long ago as Christmas gifts for family and friends expanded into an annual fundraising venture in support of local social service organizations on Whidbey Island. The project has helped make a difference in the lives of many people — particularly children since our main focus has been providing for organizations that assist families during the holiday season.

How to Order

Important: If you require shipping you need to contact Georgia and Randy separately from placing your order. See “Optional Shipping” below.

If you would like to become a collector, or add to your growing collection, your donation will be made to Whidbey Community Foundation. Georgia and Randy will work with WCF to decide where to direct the proceeds.  The price for each sculpture is $250. The materials cost is $90 per sculpture, which means that $160 of your contribution for each sculpture is tax-deductible and will go to nonprofits. 

Donors have the option to purchase the 2023 Cat Tales (3”H x 3.5”W x 2.5”D). Also available are the 2022 Loon with Chicks (2.25”H x 4”W x 3.2”D), the 2021 Penguin Pair (4”H x 2.6”W x 2.2”D), the 2020 Three French Hens (2.4”H x 4”W x 3”D), the 2019 Dashing Turtle (1.4″H x 3.6″W x 2.7″D), the 2018 Sheepish Rabbit (2.5″H x 2.75″W x 1.5″D), and the 2017 Settling Owl (2.75″H x  3.4″W x 3″ D).

The 2024 sculpture will be announced in November.

You will receive an email confirmation which includes a statement for the IRS indicating what portion of your contribution is tax-deductible and instructions should you require shipping.
