Hanley Foundation’s Golf Classic Raises $200K For Lifesaver Scholarships

Hanley Foundation’s 24th Annual Golf Classic last week at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach raised more than $200,000 for the organization’s Lifesaver Scholarship Program, providing financial scholarships for individuals struggling with substance use disorders who could not otherwise afford quality treatment.

More than 100 golfers participated in the scramble tournament, including several celebrities, such as NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor and former NFL player Tucker Frederickson; President, NFL Player’s Association, SFC Don Silvestri; actor Kevin Sorbo; Major League Baseball stars Rick Cerone and Rick Ankiel; professional golfer and Long-Drive Champion Mike “Ziggy” Zeigler; and Joe Franco, the drummer of rock band, Twisted Sister.

Event co-chairs were Ira Fenton and Sherry Sammons-Fenton, and Rob Thomson.

 “With community support of our Lifesaver Scholarship Program, hope will be restored, families will be reunited, and lives will be saved,” Rachel Pappert Docekal, MBA, Ed.D., Hanley Foundation’s CEO said.

 The prize for ‘Lowest Gross’ score went to Mark Parthemer, Mark DeLeo, Gordie Keith, and Chris Hubman, and the ‘Lowest Net’ score was awarded to Ben Ripstein, Don Silvestri, and Jimmy Guardino.
