Light of Hope Auction

Light of Hope Auction

"After my father died, it felt like my life was over; I didn't know how I could go on living. At the Caring Place, I found the light of hope."
— Megan, 14, Caring Place participant

Join us for our second annual Highmark Caring Place Light of HOPE Online Auction taking place May 14-21!

The Light of HOPE Auction raises awareness and funds for the Highmark Caring Place, with proceeds helping to bring the Light of HOPE to the lives of children grieving the death of a loved one. To help even more children, Highmark Inc. matches all proceeds dollar for dollar, allowing us to offer all services at no cost to the families.

Please consider supporting the children through a sponsorship, or by donating a unique item or gift certificate for this online auction. Check out the donor and sponsorship opportunities to see how you can join us in bringing HOPE to these children at a dark time in their lives.

If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Vargas at the Highmark Caring Foundation at (412) 544-1679 or

Thank You, 2023 Sponsors!
