Why Do Those Who Host Lose the Most? COME FIND OUT!
The Cresskill Middle/High School Home and School Association (CM/HS HSA) is partnering with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office to present “Those Who Host, Lose the Most” at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 7 in the CM/HS Media Center located 1 Lincoln Drive in Cresskill.
Mr. Martin Delaney, Chief Assistant Prosecutor of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Fatal Accident Investigation Unit, will raise awareness about the health, safety and legal risks of serving alcohol at teen gatherings, highlighting specific parental consequences and liabilities. “During this season of social gatherings for youth, remember that if it’s your property, it’s your problem,” Delaney stated.
According to a recent report by the Center for Disease Control, underage drinking and associated problems have profound negative consequences for underage drinkers, their families, their communities, and society as a whole. Underage drinking contributes to a wide range of costly health and social problems including motor vehicle crashers, suicide, interpersonal violence, unintentional injuries, brain impairment, alcohol dependence, risky sexual behavior, academic problems, and alcohol poisoning. On average, alcohol is a factor in the deaths of approximately 4,300 youths in the United States per year.
Adults and teens in grades 8 through 12 from Cresskill and surrounding communities are welcome to attend this free-of-charge event. RSVP appreciated; arrive early as seating is limited.
Those Who Host, Lose the Most is being sponsored by the CM/HS HSA 2016-2017 Parent Education Speaker Series. For more information about this event or to RSVP, email CresskillSpeakerSeries@gmail.com.
