Atlantic City, NJ (June 22, 2015) – “Be a HERO, Be a Designated Driver.®” That’s the motto for the John R. Elliott HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers®. The message is simple, and Boogie Nights at Tropicana has joined the campaign to spread the word by hosting a super hero themed fundraiser Thursday, July 2, 2015.
Thursday is typically 90s Night where party goers are invited to break out their skorts, hammer pants, and grunge flannel and cut loose to their favorite 90s tunes. But on July 2nd, there is a different dress code in mind.
Power Rangers, Men in Black, Batman… oh my! It’s time to dust off your super hero costumes, because in true “hero” fashion Boogie Nights is inviting you to dress as your favorite 90s action super hero in support of the Hero Campaign for Designated Drivers!
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the HERO Campaign,” says Steve Callender, General Manager of Tropicana Casino & Resort. “Drunk driving is a serious issue, especially at this time of year. It feels good that by doing something so light-hearted and fun we are raising awareness and funds for such a worthy cause.”
Admission is $5 and one hundred percent of the proceeds from the cover charge collected between 10p.m. – 11p.m. will be donated to the Hero Campaign. And this night (or any given night at Boogie Nights), designated drivers can request a wristband to receive complimentary non alcoholic beverages.
“We are pleased to have the Tropicana and Boogie Nights support and promote the HERO Campaign and our efforts to save lives through the use of safe designated drivers,” said Bill Elliott, chairman of the HERO Campaign.
The HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers® established in memory of Navy Ensign John Elliott of Egg Harbor Township, who was killed by a drunken driver in July, 2000, two months after graduating from the United States Naval Academy. Alcohol-related crashes kill 13,000 Americans each year and injure 25,000 more, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Commission numbers cited by the campaign.
The HERO Campaign has been a priceless resource in promoting the use of designated drivers statewide. The organization, based at Stockton University in Galloway Township, N.J., is in the midst of it 100,000 HEROES program, in which it seeks to register 100,000 designated drivers nationwide.
