Sheriff Mike Evans selected the lucky winner of a trip for four to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg on Monday, April 23 in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office.  Joining the Sheriff was Richard Hall and Glen Horsmon, Regional Sales Manager, both of Bob Hall LLC, which offered the Busch Gardens trip. 

The winning card, belonging to Sherry Taylor of St. Leonard, was taken from the pledge cards entered by citizens who signed up to be Designated Drivers at this year’s annual opening of the Tiki Bar.  Bob Hall LLC, sponsoring the drive to encourage designated driving, also supplied coolers, radios and t-shirts, among other items, for the designated drivers to win throughout the weekend.  

Anheuser Busch’s “Who’s Your Bud? Choose a Designated Driver” program promotes the concept. The Tiki Bar, Catamaran’s and Bad Fish Bar and Grille retailers on Solomons Island participated this past weekend by providing free non-alcoholic beverages and snacks to designated drivers. 

Each of the 135 designated drivers this weekend averaged three passengers for at least 405 safe rides home.  A large number of the drivers said they had 5 to 6 people riding with them.  A designated driver plan continues to be the most successful deterrent to driving while under the influence.  It puts the responsibility of safe driving back on the individual.
