Past 2018 VIP Cancellation/Reschedule List

INCIDENTS A DAY

Adults drank too much and drove about 121 million times per year-over 300,00 incidents of drinking and driving a day.

DEATHS A YEAR

That’s 28 deaths every day and one death every 51 minutes. Each and every one of them 100% preventable

INJURIES PER YEAR

290,000 injuries per year means exponentially more friends, family members and loved ones, unnecessarily effected by this preventable crime

After the initial shock of a drunk driving crash, one of the hardest things a family has to deal with is the court process.  There can often be delays before charges are even brought against an offender, as law enforcement works to gather evidence and build a strong case.

Nick Willhoit was that kid everybody loved.  He grew up in a small town community in Atwood, Tennessee – a place where everybody knew everyone.  He had gone to kindergarten with most of the students in his high school graduating class of about 80.  He had played baseball from the time he was five through...
