CARP, Inc., 17th Annual Spring Luncheon




CARP, Inc. to hold the 17th Annual Spring Luncheon and

Cathleen McFarlanE Ross Emeritus Award presentation


actor, writer, lawyer, activist and public speaker

West Palm Beach, FL – On Sunday, February 5, 2012 CARP, Inc. (Comprehensive Alcoholism Rehabilitation Programs) will hold its 17th Annual Spring Luncheon and Cathleen McFarlane Ross Award Presentation at the Ritz Carlton Palm Beach in Manalapan, Florida.

This year’s featured speaker is Christopher Kennedy Lawford, author, actor and activist. Barbara Katz, Dr. William Adkins and Xiomara Ordoñez chair the event. Park Miller, Patty Dean and Margaret Donnelley will serve as Honorary Chairpersons.

The Cathleen McFarlane Ross Emeritus Award is awarded to an individual or corporation that has exhibited exceptional effort in working with and supporting the recovery community. Her husband, Walter Ross, and her daughter, Bridget Healey, will present
the award.

Speaker Christopher Kennedy Lawford has spent much of his life in Hollywood and Washington, navigating these two worlds as an actor, writer, lawyer, activist and public speaker. However, before his successes, Lawford battled a drug and alcohol addiction for much of his early life. In recovery for more than 24 years, he shares his experience, strength and hope to make a difference in people’s lives. Presently Mr. Lawford is working with the United Nations, the Canadian Center on Substance Abuse, and the World Health Organization in efforts to raise awareness globally about addiction and hepatitis.

Mr. Lawford’s speech will focus on changing people’s view of alcohol and drug abuse and that it is a public health issue and not a stigma. Mr. Lawford states, “Addicts can be treated and live a better life through recovery. “If you really have to overcome something, you not only appreciate life, but you have wisdom and you can really achieve great things.”

Executive Director and CEO of CARP, Inc., Robert P. Bozzone wants to make sure that the focus of the event to be on the population that is served and not just to be another fundraising gala. According to Mr. Bozzone, “The purpose of CARP is to serve those who have lost everything because of chronic addiction disorder and have no other alternatives, and no place else to turn. CARP gives them that opportunity to turn their lives around.”

All CARP treatment services are based on a sliding scale and no one is turned away solely on the inability to pay. CARP’s funding comes from state, county and local funding but much more is needed to fill the gap between what clients are able to pay and what it costs to run the programs. In 2010-2011 alone, CARP treated 4221 unduplicated clients with the 93% of the clients presenting at or below the poverty level.

Mr. Lawford explains, “CARP does amazing work for folks who need services and does it on a level where it affects people from all different kinds of economic backgrounds. It is critical that these organizations are supported and that we do everything we can in order to get their attention, so people can see the kind of work they’re doing, so that they contribute.”

This Spring Luncheon is one of the major events CARP holds each year to raise much-needed funds to help those struggling with addiction. CARP Inc., now in its 44th year, offers individualized care to clients with alcohol and substance abuse problems and their families achieve an abstinence-based recovery.

Tickets to this event are $150 each or a table of 10 is $1500. Sponsorships are also available. The event includes a silent auction.. Donations are welcome.
