Holiday revelers that prefer to skip the alcohol this season can join in the 11th annual Zero-Proof Mix-Off Dec. 6 at Lorain County Community College.
Understanding the need to celebrate the holidays in a safe and responsible manner, the Lorain County Safe Community Coalition and the Lorain County Community College are again hosting the Mix-Off, a night that includes sampling 20 non-alcoholic drinks, live msic and a change to win door prizes.
So far in 2012, one dozen people have died in Lorain County as a result of impaired driving-related crashes.
“The Mix-Off is always a great way to kick-off the holidays, and gives us a chance to pause to think about how sober driving is an important part of celebrations,” Keith Brown, Director of Campus Security at LCCC and Coalition member, said.
Event organizers are hoping to remind everyone couples, singles, men and women—to have a sober ride home from all festivities.
The free event is from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.; children are welcome.
Five reasons to make the Zero-Proof Mix-Off a new favorite date:
- Close your wallet—it’s free!
- Your date has 10,000+ taste buds—give their buds a treat without the buzz
- Chance to win prizes—maybe a gift certificate toward another date
- You won’t need to phone a friend for a sober ride home
- A date that kids will enjoy too, complete with a visit from Santa
All guests will receive a 2012 Zero-Proof Mix-Off Recipe Book, featuring all 20 drink recipes available to taste during the event.
The Zero-Proof Mix-Off will be held at the Lorain County Community College’s College Center, 1005 N. Abbe Rd., Elyria 44035.
