(PRESS RELEASE)_West Palm Beach, FL (August 2, 2023)— Hanley Foundation, Florida’s largest provider of grant-funded prevention programs and recovery scholarships to combat addiction, will officially launch the ‘Cory Bartle Memorial Fund’ on Saturday, August 26, with a skateboard and BBQ event at the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach. The ‘Bartle BBQ Hang’ was conceived by the Bartle family, their close friends, and Sandy James Catering, in honor of Cory Bartle, a 34-year-old skateboarding enthusiast and rising culinary star, who lost his battle with addiction in October 2022.
“This is an opportunity for our friends in the skateboarding and culinary communities to come out and ‘get on board’ to support this critical cause,” said James Bartle, Co-Founder and Proprietor of Sandy James Catering. “It’s heartbreaking that too many young people in our community fall victim to addiction, but we want anyone suffering to know that help is available, which is why we partnered with Hanley Foundation.”
The event takes place on Saturday, August 26, from 3PM – 6PM at the National Croquet Center, 700 Florida Mango Rd, West Palm Beach, FL. Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased at hanleyfoundation.org/bbq. Admission includes a BBQ feast catered and donated by Sandy James Catering, activities, community comradery, skateboard half pipe competition with prizes, and a demonstration by skateboard pro, Kai Canduba. All proceeds from the event will benefit Hanley Foundation’s Cory Bartle Memorial Fund.
