Baskets of lemons, limes and oranges topped the gingham-covered picnic tables where guests sat on the terrace of the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach during the Hanley Foundation Family Picnic on March 10.
More than 200 supporters came out to help the organization’s fundraising toward research-based prevention programs in public and private schools, many of which are in Palm Beach County.
During the event, families enjoyed a bounce house, life-size Jenga and other lawn games, a kids’ musician, face painter, balloon artist, photo booth and a meet and greet with animals from the Palm Beach Zoo.
“At Hanley Foundation, we know that the best thing we can do to help keep our children safe from drugs and alcohol, is to spend time with them,” said Turner Benoit, chief development officer for Hanley Foundation. “Our main focus in prevention is to reduce underage drinking and to delay the age of first use.”
