All you have to do is go to Chili’s — eat as much as you can — and bring the attached flyer with you to show them. Then, 10% of what you buy, food or drink, goes to a wonderful cause that promotes safe driving.
Since the beginning, and the 49 rides they gave the first weekend, Dylan’s Drivers has made quite an impact on our community. With over 30,000 people lost a year due to automobile accidents, and over 30% of those being alcohol related, we need that kind of impact.
The program is built around young (over 21) volunteers who man phones and dispatch drivers to locations in, or closely around, town. Each vehicle has both a driver and a navigator who are male and female. It is the navigator’s job to make the ride home fun and entertaining to help build and spread the reputation that Dylan’s Drivers isn’t there to lecture you about drinking, but rather to simply get you home safe — the very needed ‘Designated Driver’ (DD) on a night of drinking.
Dylan’s Drivers was formed by Ronnie and Vickie Ballard after the tragic loss of their son, Dylan Ballard, in an alcohol related accident in July, 2011.
They still need help with all the expenses of providing this helpful service. If we can get the word out — and enough of these flyers — we can help them in a big way. Chili’s is offering a place to help, once a month.
The next evening that Dylan’s Drivers will benefit is Tuesday, August 7th. Just bring the flyer that is attached below.
