Alcohol Responsibility Month 2017 Comes to an End
April is coming to an end, and we wanted to close out Alcohol Responsibility Month with a bang!
The fourth Thursday of April is one of the most exciting days of the year for us – it’s National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day! For the eleventh year, the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility celebrated the day by hosting an event on Capitol Hill for Congressional staffers, their families, and kids from surrounding schools, including our partners at DC Scores. Gymnast Simone Biles and the Washington Nationals Racing Presidents were on hand for pictures, autographs, and a few shenanigans.
This fun-filled event is the perfect opportunity to talk to both parents and kids about the importance of having conversations early and often about saying YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking. Attendees also learned how vital it is to be active, set goals, and make smart choices.
Masters of Ceremony Tommy McFly, Jen Richer and Kelly Collis from The Tommy Show on 94.7 Fresh FM kicked off the event, and kids young and old went wild over meeting our celebrity guests, playing games, winning prizes and enjoying ice cream and snacks.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day and to all of you who helped spread our message during Alcohol Responsibility Month. Just because the month is ending does not mean we will stop encouraging a lifetime of conversations about responsibility—and we hope you continue to support us along the way.
