Hanley Family Picnic

February 10, 2013


February 10 benefit to raise funds for Hanley’s substance abuse prevention efforts in local schools

(Wellington, FL) – What happens when you appoint child chairmen and committee members for your upcoming benefit event. A whole lot of fun, according to Hanley Family Picnic child chairman, Jack Thomas, age 8. Son of event chairmen, Dan and Lisa Thomas, The King’s Academy second-grader says that the upcoming Sunday, February 10 event at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington will offer something fun for all ages!

Raising funds earmarked for Hanley Center's research-based prevention programs in local schools, the annual family picnic is in its 18th year. Traditionally held during Wellington’s Winter Equestrian Festival, the picnic offers a chance for families to expose kids to the excitement of the world-class jumping competition with premium seating, all with the backdrop of a casual lunch, animal encounters, a magic show, kids’ crafts and a silent auction geared just for children.

“We are excited to work with and support the Hanley Center,” said event chairman, Dan Thomas. “Our family believes in educating children about the dangers of substance abuse and supports families that are dealing with addictions. We are committed to youth prevention and to being a part of this great organization. We also have the honor of partnering with Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, his wife, Dorothy, and their two-year-old grandson, Noah, to raise awareness about the disease of addiction.”

Led by the Thomas family, along with honorary chairmen, Dorothy and Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, with child honorary chairman and grandson, Noah LoFaso; the Family Picnic event committee includes: Vasti Amaro, Lyanne Azqueta, Robin Wheeler Azqueta and Norberto Azqueta, Krista Basore, Kimmie and Steve Cury, Lindsay Del Campo, Lauren and Brett Elam, E. Mike Gelin, Suzanne Holmes, Sabra Kirkpatrick, Monte Lambert, Lauren and Daniel Lieberman, Cinde and Craig Martin, Michelle McGovern, Mary Katherine Morales, Elizabeth Parker, Esq.; John Riordan, Esq.; Kellen Smith, Linda and Jared Soper, Cassidy and Jim Sullivan, and Ian Zinn.

Event sponsors include Platinum Medal Sponsors: Sunny & Abe Rosenberg Foundation, in memory of Michael Rosenberg; Gold Medal Sponsors: Florida Crystals Corporation, Florida Power & Light Company, Hanley Family Foundation and Lisa and Dan Thomas; Silver Medal Sponsors: Chilton Trust Company-John C. Rau and Leopold Law, P.A.; Bronze Medal Sponsors: John Kime/Allstate Insurance and Steve Cury Construction; Valet Sponsor: 1st United Bank; Children’s Luncheon Sponsor: Sheriff Ric and Dorothy Bradshaw; Ice Cream Sponsor: South Florida Fair; Cupcake Sponsor: Mary and Mark Freitas; Children’s Goody Bag Sponsor: Lauren and Brett Elam; Photography Sponsor: Lauren Lieberman, LILA PHOTO; Public Relations sponsor, Slatkow & Husak Public Relations; Children’s Craft Sponsor: Suzanne and Michael Holmes; Children’s Critter Sponsor: Peggy Brown; Children’s Silent Auction Sponsor: Lesser Lesser Landy & Smith, PLLC; and Media Sponsors: Wellington, The Magazine and SeaView Radio.

Tickets to the Family Luncheon are $195 for adults (18 and over), $50 per child (7-17 years of age), and children 6 and under are free. Family tables are $500 per table.

“Hanley Center understands the importance of prevention and through our research based prevention programs, we have helped many children and adults have a better understanding of the disease of addiction,” said Dr. Rachel Docekal, Hanley Center Foundation CEO. “Funds from events like the Family Picnic are critical to our outreach. We are so grateful for the support from our Family Picnic chairs and sponsors to be able to continue to provide programs for parents, caregivers and older adults as well as elementary, middle, and high school students.”

Located in West Palm Beach for more than 25 years, Hanley Center recently joined the Caron Treatment Centers network. As a result of this alliance of industry leaders, Caron and Hanley Center together become 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 Center 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.
