“Many hands make light work” goes the old saying. We saw that in action over the past six weeks during prom season – and it makes a huge difference!
The 23rd year of the Safe Sober Prom Night program has been an unmitigated success! We visited 40 high schools in eight counties in just over six weeks distributing approximately 15,000 t-shirts to students who made the commitment to be safe and sober on prom night. That’s a lot of shirts!
Of course, distributing this many shirts to 40 schools is a large project. For the second year our distribution partner, Allen Tate Realty of Winston-Salem, has gone above and beyond in their service and commitment to making the Safe Sober Prom Night program a success.
Allen Tate had realtors at each and every high school helping coordinate the distribution of pledge cards and t-shirts to juniors and seniors. Indeed, over the past 23 years, pledging to “Do it right!” on prom night and receiving a Safe Sober Prom Night t-shirt has become a rite of passage for Triad teenagers. The environment of encouragement and support that the realtors of Allen Tate helped create for our young people undoubtedly touched the lives of these teenagers as they attempt to navigate through tough decisions and choices at this exciting time in their lives.
Thank you, Allen Tate realtors for donating your time, energy, lunch hours and so much more to the success of Safe Sober Prom Night. More than that, you make the future brighter for all of us!
