Children’s Hospital Online Charity Auction

For the last ten years, Ravenwood Castle has been raising money for children’s hospitals. We have primarily done this through Hoop & Stick Con, an annual four day, three night gaming convention.

Hoop & Stick Con is an amazing event, and has allowed us to raise over $100,000 for children’s hospitals. The only issue is that the convention is limited by the capacity of the property itself, meaning only 50 or so people are able to participate each year.

We are adding something new this year which will allow us to involve more of our great guests like you. We are excited to announce Hoop & Stick Con Online, an online charity auction featuring a variety of great experiences and activities throughout Ohio.

The Hoop & Stick Con Online auction will begin accepting bids at 8:15 AM on Tuesday February 14th, and will remain active until 7:00 PM Monday February 20th. Like our onsite silent auction, 100% of the proceeds from the online auction will go directly to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Over the next two weeks we will be sharing more information about some of the individual auction packages as well as our wonderful donors and sponsors on our Facebook page. You can also check out the auction site right now at You can browse through some of the amazing packages that will be available, and even add those that interest you to your watchlist. Feel free to share the auction link with your friends and family, as the more people that are aware of and involved with this effort, the more successful it will be!

Be sure to set your calendar for the opening bell of the Hoop & Stick Con Online charity auction. Stay tuned between now and then for more details, and as always thank you for your support in our efforts to raise funds for children’s hospitals!
