Prom Partners

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 theclip_image002_067 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.clip_image002_068 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.
