HANLEY FOUNDATION’S GOLF CLASSIC REACHES 20th YEAR MILESTONE

Foundation’s annual benefit returns to the prestigious Admirals Cove in Jupiter on April 22

 

(JUPITER, FLA.)  For the 20th year in a row, Hanley Foundation supporters will swing their clubs on behalf of the Foundation’s Golf Classic. The benefit will once again take place at the prestigious Admirals Cove in Jupiter on Monday, April 22nd. Co-Chairs Nellie Benoit and Liza Pulitzer Calhoun will lead the half-day event which starts with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start, followed by 18-holes of competitive play. Winners will be announced during the awards ceremony and always popular “Luncheon with the Suits” at 1 p.m.

“We are thrilled to be back again at Admirals Cove for the 20th Annual Golf Classic,” said Jan Cairnes, CEO for Hanley Foundation. “Thank you to this year’s leadership for all they are doing to raise awareness of the event and the Foundation’s mission. Addiction is a disease that affects one in four people in the United States, which is why we allocate all proceeds from the Golf Classic to help provide access to quality treatment to those who otherwise could not afford it.”

 

In addition to the Co-Chairs, leadership for this year’s Golf Classic includes Honorary Chairmen Suzanne Holmes and Gary Harris, Junior Chairmen Justin Claud and Greg Etimos, Golf Venue Chairman Jack Barrett, and Donna and Bob Goldfarb will once again Chair “Luncheon with the Suits,” which invites business leaders and community partners to join the awards ceremony, luncheon and auction portion of the day. Committee members include Carol Anderson and Eric Yorlano.

 

Sponsors for the Golf Classic include Hanley Family Foundation; Amy and Drew Rothermel; Critton, Luttier & Coleman, LLP; Robert Garrison and The Palm Beacher and Jupiter Magazine.

 

“There are few places across the country which have been hit harder than Palm Beach County when it comes to the opioid epidemic,” said Mrs. Benoit. “More people are in need of quality treatment than ever before. With your support, the Hanley Foundation can continue its life-saving work with individuals and families. I am proud to be chairing the event with Liza Pulitzer Calhoun for this milestone year and look forward to seeing you all on April 22.”

 

In the early 1980s, Mary Jane and Jack Hanley retired to Palm Beach County to discover the absence of any facilities dedicated to quality substance abuse treatment. Through the couple’s visionary leadership and great support from the community, Hanley Center and the Hanley Center Foundation were established. Nearly 40 years later and now expanded throughout Florida, the community continues to recognize the stand-alone Hanley Foundation with great support for its thought leadership, grantmaking and evidence-based programming. The charitable 501(c)(3) organization provides statewide resources for substance use disorder advocacy, education and access to quality treatment. The organization’s prevention programming is available to schools, churches and community groups through grant funding provided by the Florida Department of Children and Families, office of Substance Abuse and Mental Health. With support from the community, the Hanley Foundation is taking critical steps to change the conversation around substance use disorders.
