SCCC Broadcasting Club raises awareness of the dangers of drunk driving
“You know you’re going to drink; stay where you are,” Stacy Bockbrader exclaimed to students in passing at the Broadcasting Club’s Shamrock Sale on March 9 at Sussex County Community College.
This year marked the club’s first Shamrock Sale to raise awareness on campus of the dangers of drunken driving.
“It’s basically against kids drinking and driving,” informed Bockbrader. The event was held on March 9 and March 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the D Building. For $1 students bought a shamrock and the money was donated to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD.
The sale was also a means of displaying the Broadcasting Club’s new public service announcement.
“We wanted to make kids aware of the PSA,” said Bockbrader. The advertisement will air on Channel 20 at a future date. According to Broadcasting Club member Aaron McCarty, it will be streamed on the club’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
No matter where the ad is aired, the Broadcasting Club is happy to get their message out there.
“With Spring Break coming up we know kids will drink but they should stay where they are or have a designated driver,” said Bockbrader. “The reality is it’s not worth it.”
