Benefit raises critical dollars for Lifesaver Scholarship Fund helping Florida patients receive treatment

(PALM BEACH) Forget that they called it a Gala. The only formality at the recent Caron and Hanley inaugural benefit could be found in the traditional beauty of The Breakers venue. From the initial invitation encouraging guests to come dressed in Palm Beach casual, to the deconstructed Caesar salad and comfort-style truffle mac ‘n cheese, to the very un-stuffy Marcia Mitchell Band setting a dance-till-you-drop tone from the moment Breakers staff opened the ballroom doors, to the heartfelt speeches by Gala co-chairs Liza Pulitzer and Nellie Benoit, the combined Caron and Hanley benefit left the formality of its separate selves behind and joined forces for a FUN night to remember raising funds for addiction treatment.

“The evening was especially meaningful to us,” said Pulitzer. “The proceeds from our combined event will be used for the Lifesaver Scholarship Fund which supports people who want help, but need financial assistance. About 40 percent of Caron and Hanley patients receive assistance and thanks to our guests’ generosity, even more will be helped.”

As a finale, an hour-plus performance by former Foreigner rock-God, Lou Gramm, capped the evening as guests scooped up still-warm sweets from the Donut Divas, and snacked on sliders as they rummaged through swag bags overstuffed with goodies from Letarte, Alex and Ani, Christopher Kennedy Lawford, Lilly Pulitzer, OPI and more.  Entire tables of the Mangrove Group – Hanley’s young friends’ organization – and guests in the after-party kept the dance floor moving past midnight.

Seen at the sold-out event were Turner and Whitmore Benoit, Chris and Bobby Leidy, Dede Merck, Lou Hager, Alice and Chris Holbrook, Christopher Kennedy Lawford, Judith and Jarrett Kling, Wendy and David Novack, Ali and Lee Hanley, Michael McCarty, Angela Culveyhouse and Michael Vecellio, Kim and Payson Coleman, Bill and Nancy Rollnick, Chris Cook, Julie and Howard Rudolph, Francis and Sarah Fabrizio, Joanie and Paul Van der Grift, Les Daniels, Dick and Sally Robinson, and Holly and Michael McClosky among others.

“We wanted to create a setting where our guests could have a good time and learn about addiction,” said Benoit.  “It’s really the last taboo. People just don’t want to think about it. But the truth is that one in four Americans will be touched by an alcohol or drug problem at some point during their lifetime.  The good news is that addiction is preventable and treatable. And the earlier treatment begins, the better the outcome.”

Sponsors for the Caron and Hanley event included Kim and Payson Coleman, Heidi Cox, Marvin H. Davidson Foundation, Florida Power & Light, Lydia and Robert Forbes, Gary and Dee-Dee Harris, Anne S. Keresey and Thomas Hazard Keresey, Donna Kress, Joan and Charles Lazarus, Kathy and Paul Leone, Mark Edward Partners, Sally M. Marks, Adele S. Merck, Catalina and Thomas A.N. Miller, Sean F. Conaboy - NSM Insurance Group, Margaret and Michael Picotte, Kitty and Hank Price, E. Burke Ross, Jr., Lesly Smith, Caroline and Bailey B. Sory, Louise H. Stephaich, Tom McCarthy, Ralph and Mary Gesualdo, and Duane Morris.

Caron and Hanley Treatment Centers have joined forces. As a result of this alliance of industry leaders, Caron and Hanley together are the largest and most comprehensive nonprofit addiction treatment provider in the country, focused on a 12-Step recovery program with a powerful clinical component. Caron is well known for pioneering addiction treatment that is gender-specific and specialized for adolescents, young adults, families, as well as in instances of relapse. Hanley has forged new ground creating programs focused on baby boomers and senior citizens. Combined, these innovators will now offer the country’s most comprehensive continuum of treatment ranging from adolescence through older adulthood.  In South Florida, Caron and Hanley Treatment Centers operate lifesaving addiction treatment centers at Hanley Center, Caron Ocean Drive and Caron Renaissance in Palm Beach County; and Gate Lodge in Vero Beach.
