Hattie Larlham to honor Kotkowski family of Lakeside Sand & Gravel at 2018 Circle of Caring
Hattie Larlham will honor the Kotkowski family of Lakeside Sand & Gravel at its 18th Annual Circle of Caring fundraiser on Sat., Oct. 20. The marquee event hosted by Betsy Kling, Chief Meteorologist for WKYC-TV 3 will be held at Signature of Solon at 39000 Signature Drive in Solon, Ohio. Proceeds from the event will support programs and services for the children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities Hattie Larlham serves.
Longtime neighbors of the Hattie Larlham Center for Children with Disabilities in Mantua, Ohio, the Kotkowskis and their family-owned company have been generous supporters of the organization for more than 50 years. Through personal giving, corporate sponsorship, and third-party fundraising events, the Kotkowski family and Lakeside Sand & Gravel have helped Hattie Larlham grow and thrive since the very beginning. Owner Ron Kotkowski currently serves on the Hattie Larlham Board of Directors, and the family hosts an annual Open House at their site to benefit Hattie Larlham.
The Circle of Caring will feature a VIP and cocktail reception, live entertainment, food stations and a wine pull. Live, silent and Fund a Need auctions will be hosted by Auctioneer Rob Telecky. The 2018 Fund a Need auction will support the growth of Hattie Larlham’s community engagement initiatives, including Constant Companions, Addventures, resident trips and outings, and work training programs. These programs create opportunities for people with disabilities to explore their community, interact with the world around them and discover what it means to be a good neighbor.
Tickets and sponsorship information are available on the event website. For more information, contact Hattie Larlham Development Officer Wendy Voelker at 330-840-6845 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
