WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Friday, February 15, 2013) – The doctors at Digestive Health Specialists are sponsoring Mount Tabor High School’s participation in the nationally recognized Safe Sober Prom Night program for the third year in a row. Lead by Dr. William Bray, who has two daughters at Mount Tabor High, the donation from Digestive Health Specialists will cover the cost of pledge cards and t-shirts for the juniors and seniors at the school.
“We recognize that our youth today are the future of our communities tomorrow,” says Dr. Bray. “We are proud to be part of the circle of encouragement and support of our young people. The Safe Sober Prom Night message combined with positive peer pressure is making a difference!”
It costs approximately $5000 for each of the 38 high schools to participate, a cost mostly shouldered by a founding sponsor of the program, Daggett Shuler, Attorneys at Law.
Safe Sober Prom Night is a non-profit organization co-founded in 1991 by attorney David Daggett of Daggett Shuler, Attorneys at Law. The goal of Safe Sober Prom Night is to provide ongoing awareness of the dangers of drugs and alcohol and to encourage positive peer pressure to reduce underage drinking and drug use among young people. The program is currently active in the greater Triad region of North Carolina.
Safe Sober Prom Night encourages high school students to be safe with a written pledge to stay drug and alcohol free on prom night. Each student who signs a pledge card receives a Safe Sober Prom Night t-shirt. Students are given incentives to keep their commitment, including scholarships and a chance to win $1,000 for their school. To date, more than 400,000 students have signed the Safe Sober pledge.
