HOPE Council to host impact panel on drinking and driving

The HOPE Council invites community members to attend an Impact Panel on Monday, Dec. 6, so that they may hear powerful messages from individuals who have been impacted by drinking and driving.

The Impact Panel begins at 6:30 p.m. (late admittance is not permitted) and is held at Gateway Technical College’s Madrigrano Auditorium, 3520 30th Ave., Kenosha. Pre-registration is required as space is limited, and there is a cost of $25 per person attending.

“The panel is a great education tool for all young people who just earned their driver’s licenses but don’t understand the impact of personal decisions and how they can affect their lives forever,” says Cheryl Pataska, Impact Panel coordinator. “Typically there are three speakers, two of whom were convicted of driving while intoxicated, and one who was in a crash caused by an impaired driver. No one can hear these stories and not be moved by them.”

To attend the Impact Panel, send $25 to the HOPE Council, 5942 6th Ave., Kenosha, WI 53140, or come to the HOPE Council offices during business hours to register.

Founded in 1968 and incorporated in 1969, the mission of the HOPE Council is to reduce the impact of alcohol and other drug abuse in our community by providing education, prevention, intervention and referral services.
