Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for teenagers. When you add to that the excitement of having finished high school, and the peer pressure to consume alcohol or drugs, the combination can be lethal.
That's why parents in the Monterey Peninsula -- and throughout the country, really -- put together Sober Grad nights, alcohol free, late-night extravaganzas where graduates can let their hair down in a safe, supervised, atmosphere.
And like most events sponsored by PTA, the events rely on donations from the community.
All 3 of MPUSD Sober Grads are the evening of June 7. All three are organized by the PTA. They all need cash donations and prizes for the prize wheel and games etc.
So please donate! For more information you can call Joanna Greenshields, Monterey PTA, at firstname.lastname@example.org, Constance Constable, Seaside PTA, email@example.com, and Jesse Tamayo at Marina High PTA, firstname.lastname@example.org
