Honoree: Judge Joseph Giulitto
The 19th annual Rudolph H. Garfield Circle of Caring hosted by the Hattie Larlham Foundation is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we raise more than $225,000 annually at this event. The event features dinner, drinks, as well as live, silent and fund-a-need auctions. Proceeds from the 2019 Circle of Caring will benefit Hattie Larlham and help create opportunities for 1,600 children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Northeast and Central Ohio. Our founder, Hattie Larlham, had a dream that all people with developmental disabilities should receive the highest quality of care possible. We’ve seen first-hand, through our 50+ years of serving the community, that what’s possible is always changing when it comes to caring for those with disabilities. Funds raised through Circle of Caring allow Hattie Larlham to do more - to effectively serve more individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families, and to continue providing the highest level of comfort, joy and achievement.
