CB Cares Positive Coaching Award
CB Cares Educational Foundation is proud to announce a vibrant new partnership with Bucks County Orthodontics, who will continue the yearly recognition of a coach exemplifying positive coaching. The Positive Coaching Award was established in 2012 by the Jones family of Chalfont to recognize a deserving coach who serves as a positive role model, understands the importance of a child’s well-being and is a positive influence in the lives of young people. Specifically, the annual recipient will be recognized for teaching positive life lessons through sports, providing leadership, and promoting sportsmanship, fair play, motivation and respect. All of these behaviors and values are consistent with the 40 Developmental Assets, the framework of CB Cares Educational Foundation’s programs, and thus Bucks County Orthodontics sponsorship will continue to bring this Award to the Central Bucks community. Dr. Todd Welsh has committed to funding a $500 gift to the selected coach who will also receive a beautifully engraved plaque. The recipient will be honored at a community ceremony in late spring.

Local Businesses Join Forces with CB Cares for Prom Partners
Very soon prom season will be in full swing, and CB Cares EF is gearing up for their Prom Partners program, an initiative to bring businesses together to get the message to our youth that we care about the choices they make during this time of year. Prom Partners is a collaboration between CB Cares EF and local businesses in the community who experience increased business during the prom season. Studies show that during weekends around prom time, there is an increase of traffic crash fatalities among 15-20 year olds that are alcohol-related, and of these fatalities, 72 percent involve a 16-20 year old driver with alcohol in his/her system. This statistic alone was enough to prompt the importance of the message promoted in the Prom Partner’s program.
Local businesses maintain their partnership with CB Cares EF to promote this message by distributing the Prom Partner message via brightly colored flyers which hang from every tuxedo rental that goes out the door. The message is smart and simple, “Look Good, Choose Well, Get Home Safely”. CB Cares EF and the community want everyone to enjoy themselves and look their best and not contribute to the staggering statistics during prom season.
