Golfers teed off at the prestigious Admirals Cove for Hanley Foundation’s 19th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, April 16th. More than 100 supporters attended the yearly benefit which raises funds to provide access to quality treatment for those suffering from a substance use disorder who otherwise could not afford it.
Jan Cairnes, CEO for Hanley Foundation thanked this year’s leadership including Chairs Gary Harris and Suzanne Holmes; Junior Chairs Justin Claud and Greg Etimos; Golf Venue Chair Jack Barrett; Host Committee Chair Barbara Shafer; and Donna and Bob Goldfarb, who served as Chairs for the unique “Luncheon with the Suits,” which invited business leaders and community partners to join the awards ceremony, luncheon and auction portion of the day.
“With the nation in the midst of the largest opioid crisis in history, and Palm Beach County especially hard hit, now more than ever people are in need of quality addiction treatment,” said Turner Benoit, Chief Development Officer for Hanley Foundation. “Because of your participation in today’s tournament, we can ensure that more people in Florida receive access to quality care.”

“Today’s tournament brings awareness and resources to patients and families in their journey to recovery,” said Bob Goldfarb. “I support the Hanley Foundation because I have hope that my daughter will get the help she needs one day.
