WANADA receives regional alcohol program award for sponsorship

WANADA received a WRAPPY award from the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) for the association’s continuing support of sober driving. The event took place at the group’s annual meeting at Clyde’s of Gallery Place.

WANADA CEO John O’Donnell and past CEO Gerard Murphy were on hand to receive the award. WRAP is a nonprofit public-private partnership working to prevent drunk driving and underage drinking in the Washington metropolitan region. O’Donnell is on WRAP’s Board and Murphy is a cofounder and past chairman. WANADA has been a consistent, longtime supporter of WRAP and contributed to its founding, development and leadership. Other sponsors of the group include counties, cities and other members of the business community such as the alcohol industry.

WANADA is still active in WRAP and its SoberRide program, which offers discounted rides on major holidays to prevent drunk driving. The next SoberRide program, cosponsored by Lyft, will be this weekend for Halloween, from 10 p.m. Saturday, October 28, to 4 a.m. Sunday, October 29. Lyft users over 21 can receive up to $15 off their ride in the Washington coverage area. For more information, visit http://www.wrap.org/soberride/.
