LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TAKE STAND AGAINST DISTRACTED DRIVING WITH DRIVE FOR LIFE INITIATIVE SPONSORED BY TRI-EAGLE SALES

(Ocala, Florida 2017) At North Marion High School, students are busy preparing for the 7th annual Drive for Life campaign that will take place March 6–10. Organized by the Student Leadership team and SADD Club, the Drive for Life campaign focuses on driving responsibly and making good decisions when behind the wheel of a car. Students on campus will be able to participate in a variety of activities, including assemblies with guest speakers, interactive booths that focus on the effects of driving drunk and texting while driving, and other activities that emphasize the importance of safe driving.

The student-led facet of the campaign is one of the driving forces behind the success of Drive for Life. Student Government sponsor Sonja Christmas states, “Adults are constantly bombarding students with ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts.’ After a while, it becomes a blur. Drive for Life is different because students are telling other students to stop and be responsible.”

Drive for Life originated in 2010 as students on the North Marion High School campus were grieving the passing of several classmates that had recently died in several unrelated vehicle accidents. The students involved in the Leadership team at that time approached the Administrative team and voiced their rationale for designing a campaign that would educate their fellow classmates about the risks of distracted and drunk driving and hopefully prevent further accidents. Through the continued financial support of Duke Energy and The Marion County Children’s Alliance, the program has been able to grow each year and allows for more activities and more student involvement. The long-lasting effects can be seen each day as students buckle their seat belts as they leave campus and drive safely during their travels.

This year, the student leaders have incorporated the Arrive Alive Tour as part of their focus for the week. Arrive Alive is a health and wellness organization that focuses on positive and impactful student programs for future decision making. A primary focus of the Arrive Alive program is a heightened awareness of the dangers and consequences of drunk or distracted driving. Thanks to the generosity of the local beverage distributor Tri-Eagle Sales, our long-time partner Duke Energy, and the Marion County Children’s Alliance, the students at North Marion High will have a chance to participate in this program.

Brittany Mukadam, Communications Manager for Tri-Eagle Sales, states, “We are committed to working with parents, educators, law enforcement officials, local businesses, and many others to prevent underage drinking. We’re proud to sponsor the Arrive Alive Tour to encourage students to make smart choices, including avoiding peer pressure to drink underage.”

A positive result of the students’ commitment to organizing and implementing the Drive for Life campaign each year at North Marion High is the participation of every high school in Marion County and several high schools in surrounding counties. The students not only learn how to make smart driving choices, but they also learn to make wise lifelong decisions, which is the legacy left behind by those that lost their lives in the vehicle accidents that served as the motivation for the first Drive for Life week years ago.

World-Famous Budweiser Clydesdales Visit Tallahassee, Florida Clydesdales Will Appear in Tallahassee for Community Events

Bud Clydesdales_WEBSITE 2Tallahassee, Florida – Eight majestic (and giant) horses and their historic red beer wagon will appear at the Red Hills International Horse Trials and in the College Town area of Tallahassee. Consumers can get up close and personal with the hitch team. This special appearance is made possible by Tri-Eagle Sales – one of the top 25 Anheuser-Busch distributors in the United States.

This is the second appearance of the Clydesdales at the Red Hills International Horse Trials. “The Red Hills International Horse Trials attracts riders and horse lovers from all over the world. The World-Famous Budweiser Clydesdales are iconic to the Budweiser brand, and showcasing them at this event complements the historic tradition of competitive horse riding. To witness the Clydesdales march is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for any horse or beer lover,” says Brittany Mukadam, Communications Manager for Tri-Eagle Sales.

The eight-horse hitch will be harnessed and hitched to the famous red beer wagon on Friday, March 10 at 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday, March 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Red Hills International Horse Trials.

The Red Hills International Horse Trials appearance in Tallahassee is one of hundreds that the traveling hitches make annually. Today, these giant draft horses are primarily used for breeding and show. The horses chosen to be the Budweiser Clydesdales must be at least four years old, stand approximately 18 hands (or six feet) at the shoulder, weigh an average of 2,000 pounds, be bay in color, and have four white legs, a blaze of white on the face, and a black mane and tail. A gentle temperament is also very important, as hitch horses meet millions of people each year.

The Budweiser Clydesdales are also scheduled to be in College Town on Thursday, March 9 to make a special delivery that evening.

Tallahassee (Sept. 16, 2016) – Employees of Tri-Eagle Sales will celebrate Anheuser-Busch’s seventh annual Global Beer Responsible Day today by spreading Budweiser’s drunk-driving prevention message: Give A Damn. Don’t Drive Drunk.

Global Beer Responsible Day, started by Anheuser-Busch in 2010, is a yearly event during which thousands of Anheuser-Busch employees and wholesale partners educate their communities about alcohol responsibility.

Tri-Eagle Sales recently staged a crashed vehicle at the popular Florida State University Block Party to raise awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol. Attendees also had the opportunity to wear impairment goggles and walk on a straight line to experience a realistic simulation of impairment.

“At Tri-Eagle Sales, we’re determined to play our part in keeping our community safe,” said Brittany Mukadam, Communications Manager, Tri-Eagle Sales. “Global Beer Responsible Day is a great opportunity to come together and stress the importance of responsible drinking. The message is clear: take a cab, call a friend, or designate a driver. Care enough to get home safely. No excuses.”
