Since 1984, parents of Farmington High School seniors have organized an all-night, drug and alcohol-free event for FHS seniors called Project Graduation. This tradition provides a safe place for graduates to celebrate with classmates on graduation night with professional entertainers, fun activities, games, contests, lots of food and tons of amazing prizes and gifts – it is HOURS of great fun and memories.
Each member of the graduating class of 2023 received a $25 Uber gift card with the message:
The Luke Roux Memorial Fund's mission is to spread awareness about the risks of impaired driving and to encourage others to be proactive with a driving plan when going out with friends.
If you Drink, Don' t Drive. Decide to Ride.
The Ben Lovett Educational Fund allows Mothers Against Drunk Driving to provide educational programming at schools and for community organizations around the state of Connecticut free of charge. The Lovett Fund is earmarked for the program, Power of You(th), to be presented in schools and community organizations statewide. The program examines the effects of underage drinking.
One such example is a High School "decision making" assembly focusing on the temptations of teens to make poor decisions regarding substance abuse and driving. Such programs may also include speakers who are victims of drunk driving collisions. Click here for flyer with additional information.
