I'll never forget the morning after our senior prom many years ago. We got a call from someone telling us that one of my friends was killed in a head on collision. It was horrible!

Every year, hopefully adults will be generous in donating financially to alcohol free after prom party projects because it truly does save lives. It also keeps kids off the roads when they get sleepy in the wee hours of the night. My friend had not been drinking; he fell asleep while driving. If you have donated financially, then on behalf of our son who will be graduating, we thank you.

It's good to see that adults are stepping up and really making it clear to these kids just how dangerous alcohol is for them. Thank you for all the effort you've put into this.
