The evening will open with a teen’s inspirational story on the impact alcohol had on his life. Youth will gather in one room to participate in the POWER of YOU(TH)/SMART presentation while parents, in another room, learn how to be empowered with the POWER of PARENTS
The evening will conclude with a panel of speakers motivating those in attendance to take action relating to underage drinking in our community. Parents will be charged to Start the Conversation and youth will be given an opportunity to sign up for a Sticker Shock event happening on April 26.
