Imagine if every time you spend the night at Sleeping Lady Resort, dine in one of our gourmet restaurants, relax at the spa or have a drink at the bar, it supported a good cause. Today, it’s not just a dream, it’s a reality.
Effective January 1, 2019, our beloved owner, Harriet Bullitt transferred her ownership of the Sleeping Lady business to Icicle Fund. This means that every time you spend money at Sleeping Lady, you're increasing the impact of the Icicle Fund right here in North Central Washington, where you love to visit.
Icicle Fund is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit that was founded by Harriet to enhance the health and quality of all life in North Central Washington by engaging people with arts, history and the natural environment. Their work includes the support of the Fund's six partners, and ensures that local non-profit organizations whose work aligns with the Icicle Fund's mission continue to grow and thrive. The results have included access to the arts for kids and adults, increases in wildfire preparedness, expanded hiking trails, open spaces, and much more.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Icicle Fund. In that time, the Fund has invested more than $40 million in over 100 organizations in our region. And now, you have the ability to advance this important work when you stay, dine and relax with us.
The resort will continue to operate under the same management team and staff you’ve come to love. Kevin, and his teammates in Guest Services will provide their usual warm welcome and smooth check in to your clean, well-appointed guest room. Executive Chef, Christian Mikkelsen and his culinary team will continue to prepare gourmet meals, with the freshest local ingredients; served with a smile by Hans, Aaron and the rest of the Kingfisher team. Leticia, at O'Grady's and Chava at the Grotto Bar will make your piping hot espresso or Whispering Pine (if you haven't tried one, it's a must). And, Tram and the Aspen Leaf Spa team will continue to guide you on your relaxation journey. The main difference is that now a portion of your dollars will support our region through Icicle Fund's giving.
We are so thankful to Harriet for her vision to create Sleeping Lady in this special place and her gift, ensuring it will continue to nurture all who visit!
