PSA calls for responsible adult holiday parties to prevent underage drinking
Lee County Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida and Drug Free Collier have teamed up to create a PSA to help prevent underage drinking as part of the #refuse campaign. Television spots will air in the Fort Myers/Naples DMA from December 18th through December 31st calling for responsible adult holiday parties.
Alcohol is often part of holiday celebrations. The PSA encourages adults to be careful and responsible when hosting parties and limit temptations that can lead to poor decisions. The spot also serves as a reminder that serving alcohol to anyone under the age of 21 is illegal, even in your own home.
