TADD flyer

Please Join us for this All Ages Event on Sunday October 16th, 2011 at GAME PAZZO in Downers Grove from 2:00pm- 5:00pm. The fundraising event will feature unlimited gaming for 3 hours, live entertainment with music provided by Gemstone Production’s DJ Barry Switzer and magical acts performed by Chris Ivanovich. T.A.D.D. has also invited a powerful guest speaker, Joe Guglielmi, who was involved in a drunk-driving accident that has left him a t3 paraplegic. The donation for this first ever fundraiser is $25 per person. There will be raffles for adults and prizes for any gamers who wish to enter into gaming competitions. TEENS AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING (T.A.D.D ). has been privately funded and influencing legislation since William Michael Piecuch, Jr. founded the organization in 2003.

For further information about T.A.D.D. or the fundraiser, you can contact Marie Volpentesta at or 708-354-8233(TADD).

One Hundred percent of the donations will stay in Illinois and help continue their “Turn Onto Safe Driving” program which is provided to High Schools and Junior High Schools with a Safe Driving program. The program is incorporated into a homework planner and study guide for High School students at no cost to the schools. The main purpose of this program is to deliver the safe driving message. The Safe Driving Planner contains pages of stories, statistics, and tips, which act to educate the youth on the dangers of drinking and driving. Through daily exposure and repetition, T.A.D.D. believes the message will be delivered.
