Project Graduation is a free safety program which seeks to educate senior students on the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse so that they will remain safe on the night of graduation and into their adult lives. According to rmiia.org, Motor vehicle accidents are the primary cause of death for 15- to 20-year-olds. In fact, the CDC reported that per mile driven, teenage drivers between the ages of 16 to 19 are four times more likely to get into an accident than older drivers. Project Graduation is an event put on to keep students off the roads on their graduation night and inspire them to live drug and alcohol-free lives.
To thank the students for all of their hard work in the program, Project Graduation teamed up with Main Event Entertainment and Texas Toyota of Grapevine for this special lock-in celebration. The party was held at Main Event Entertainment in Fort Worth from 11:00 p.m. June 4th through 6:00 a.m. June 5th.
At Main Event, students took part in a variety of free activities. The fun-filled night featured great food and entertainment, including everything from bowling and laser tag to a mind-bending performance by Hypnoron, a local hypnotist. At the end of the night, Texas Toyota of Grapevine held a drawing to give one lucky winner a terrific graduation present – a free 2010 Toyota Corolla.
“One thing I want everyone to know is that Texas Toyota of Grapevine contacted me to see if they could do anything for us,” Project Graduation President Bettye Heath said. “We are so thankful that they donated the car and we think that it will bring more kids into Project Graduation, which will help save more lives. All of the seniors of 2011 would like to give Texas Toyota of Grapevine a big thank you!”
