PALM BEACH, FL – Palm Beach residents Liza Pulitzer and Nellie Benoit will serve as co-chairs for the Caron Hanley Treatment Centers Gala 2013.

The gala will be held January 11, 2013, at The Breakers, Palm Beach, and will benefit the newly combined organizations’ Lifesaver Scholarship Fund, which helps fund addiction treatment for those who can’t afford it.

“It is an exciting time for Caron and Hanley. Uniting the two nonprofit organizations now provides unmatched care in the addiction treatment field, offering more comprehensive care and accessible treatment. Uniting our galas allows us to help even more people seeking recovery,” said Andrew Rothermel, Florida Market President for Caron Treatment Centers.

Pulitzer, a third-generation Palm Beacher, is a real estate agent for Brown Harris Stevens. Prior to her real estate career, Pulitzer was a dress designer for Lilly Pulitzer, designing the company’s junior line under the leadership of her mother, Lilly. Pulitzer serves the Junior Committee of the Cleveland Clinic, the Publicity Hound magazine committee for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and the committee for the Preservation Foundation Gala. She has also served as co-chair of the Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation Dinner Dance for the past two years.

Benoit is currently the Vice President for the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. She has chaired the organization’s Doggy Ball and also produced the Publicity Hound magazine for the past five years. Previously, Benoit worked at the Palm Beach Day School for 10 years. In addition to her involvement with Hanley Center’s Annual Family Luncheon, she has also served on event committees for the Arthritis Foundation, Young Friends of the Red Cross, Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults and Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation.

Pulitzer and Benoit follow other notable Hanley and Caron Gala chairmen Isabel and Richard Furlaud, Anne Keresey, Anita Hamilton Michaels, Barbara and Doyle Rogers, and Caroline and Bailey B. Sory. The combined gala will be the first of several joint events for the two organizations in the 2013 season.
