Fund the Future Auction

This year, Circle of Caring guests will raise a paddle to support Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities renovations. The construction expands Hattie Larlham's respite and short-term health care services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These in-demand services often have waiting lists up to a year, keeping families from much needed care. Supporting the Fund the Future auction increases Hattie Larlham's respite capacity fivefold and ensures community families will get the care and services their loved ones need.

Mobile Auction Bidding

Circle of Caring’s silent auction features free mobile bidding from BidPal. Guests can bid on silent auction items, purchase raffle tickets and make donations directly from their smartphones. Because bidding is mobile, Hattie Larlham supporters can bid ahead of the Circle of Caring, as well as from home the night of the event. Download the BidPal app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The app is not required to use the BidPal technology.
