On Saturday, March 19th, attorneys David Daggett and Griff Shuler of Daggett Shuler Law appeared on Triad Today to share information about the 2022 Safe Sober kickoff event, including a big surprise! Watch the segment:
When the Safe Sober Prom Night program began in 1991, it was based on three founding principles:
- Raising awareness of the dangers of drugs and alcohol
- Creating an environment of “positive peer pressure”
- Getting the entire community to wrap their collective arms of support around its young people
The program has been going strong, making a big difference and reaching over 600,000 kids in the past 32 years. However, Daggett Shuler isn’t stopping there! With the events of the past few years, school events such as proms were not held, and David and Griff saw an opportunity to expand and evolve the program. Now known as Safe Sober, the program has always been more than just about prom season. The mission remains to encourage young people to make the right choice, year-round.
New this year is the partnership with local YMCAs. Studies have shown that the pressures of drugs and alcohol are affecting kids at younger and younger ages. By reaching out to middle-school-aged youth, the Safe Sober program hopes to help mitigate these stresses in their lives and help them make good decisions. The Y’s afterschool and sports programs provide healthy outlets and Safe Sober aims to support and reinforce these positive influences.
However, the really big news is the 2022 Kickoff Event at Truist Stadium for the April 9th Winston-Salem Dash game! Presented by Safe Sober, it’s the first Saturday game of the season complete with fireworks. The famous Safe Sober T-shirts will be available for everyone, and the Dash will even get into the spirit wearing specially designed Safe Sober jerseys. Look for David and Griff in their matching jerseys as well! David will be throwing out the first pitch, and there will be surprises throughout the evening to keep the whole family entertained. Don’t forget to get your tickets now!
Later in the episode, David Daggett also participated in the Roundtable discussion with Ogi Overman and Keith Grandberry. They talked about current news items and political issues.
