2022 Caron Greater Philadelphia Gala

On November 1st, friends of Caron came together to celebrate family and recovery at the 2022 Greater Philadelphia Gala. More than $1.4 million was raised to support Caron’s mission of Recovery for Life. This will increase access to treatment through the scholarship program and support programming to significantly improve recovery outcomes.

Thank you to our honoree, the Forst Family, for sharing their personal journey, providing inspiration, and continuing to generously support our community. The Forst Family was selected for demonstrating the same spirit of caring and compassion exemplified by Caron’s founders Dick and Catherine Caron, and for their ongoing support of Caron’s mission.

During this season of gratitude and giving, we thank you with all our hearts for supporting the lifesaving addiction treatment Caron provides. For those attending the Gala, we hope you enjoyed the experience. Whatever way you provided support – sponsorship, donation, event ticket, or auction item – you are making a significant impact on a family’s life.

For those who wanted to support the event, but have not had a chance,
donations can still be made through 12/31/22.

Ways to Donate

  • Donate Online
  • Mail a check payable to Caron Treatment Centers: Attn: Caron Development Office, 120 Stayman Drive, North Wales, PA 19454

While the Gala is our largest fundraiser for the Greater Philadelphia region, many of you support Caron in so many ways throughout the year, and for that we are very grateful. Every gift makes a difference in someone’s life.
