When you visit any of our Hoffman Auto Group dealerships this December, you’ll see our vehicles decked out in red ribbons. They aren’t for Santa, although our vehicles do make a fabulous gift idea for those of you on Santa’s “Nice” list! The ribbons are for Mothers Against Drunk Driving’s (MADD) Tie One On for Safety campaign and designated driver program. According to their website, Mothers Against Drunk Driving is dedicated and determined “to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking.” During the month of December, a portion of every vehicle sold at all Hoffman Auto Group dealerships will be donated to MADD’s mission- your purchase makes a positive impact in your community!
Hoffman Auto Group has supported MADD’s Tie One on for Safety campaign for 15 years and has donated nearly $180,000 to the local MADD chapter. We invite you to get involved and show your support.
Tie One on For Safety
The Tie One On for Safety red ribbon campaign began in 1986 and continues to be MADD’s longest-running awareness campaign. The phrase “tie one on” is slang for drinking alcohol, but MADD wants you to tie on a red ribbon to remind everyone that drinking and driving don’t mix. Put safety first and designate a driver before leaving for a celebration. Drunk driving is 100% preventable, yet every two minutes someone is injured in a drunk driving accident.
MADD held their Community Champions Dinner on November 16, 2017. These Community Champions are selected for their continuing commitment to support MADD’s mission to stop drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent under-age drinking. Please join Hoffman Auto Group in thanking everyone recognized for their commitment and support. For a full list of those recognized, click here.
Join us today and become part of the solution. Follow the safe party tips below and commit to driving responsibly and help raise awareness. The annual Walk Like MADD is a 5k walk that raises the funds necessary for MADD to continue their mission year after year, and a great way to get involved in the fight against drunk driving in your community. Hartford’s Walk Like MADD will be held at XFINITY Theatre on May 5, 2018. Click here for more information.
On behalf of all of us at Hoffman Auto Group, have a safe and joyous holiday.
