Celebrate community engagement at the Hattie Larlham Friendship Luncheon.

Friendship Luncheon

The 2018 Hattie Larlham Friendship Luncheon is Fri., June 15. This event recognizes the individuals, groups and businesses who share their experience, talents and financial support to enrich the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. During the luncheon awards are given in different categories in honor of milestones or achievements. The event recognizes our community's participation in the lives of the people Hattie Larlham serves.

We will also present Trailblazer Awards to a person who achieved employment through Hattie Larlham's community employment program and to a business who partners with Hattie Larlham in providing community employment opportunities for the people we serve.

The 2017 Friendship Luncheon was hosted by Sara Shookman, WKYC-TV anchor as we recognized the following individuals and organizations:
