On the night of October the 6th, the historic Fort Harrison rocked with the life-saving Truth About Drugs message by the Foundation for a Drug-Free World at their third annual, “Night for a Drug-Free World Charity Concert.”
The Foundation for a Drug-Free World used music to spread the Truth About Drugs message, to inspire people, especially youth, to lead a drug-free life. The concert featured Jonathan Miller and Hana-Li and was attended by over 280 people from the Tampa Bay area. Guests enjoyed refreshments, danced into the evening and were reached by the important message, “You can have fun without using alcohol and drugs.”
One guest, a school teacher - said, “It was so great to see all the kids and youth dancing and having fun with their families and friends in this safe environment. It shows them they can have fun without drugs or alcohol!”
Another guest, who works in the community said, “This was such a great concert and great cause! I have been using the Truth About Drugs materials as they are a great tool and I will continue to use them to educate youth on the dangers of drugs.”
After the concert guests were encouraged to take complimentary Truth About Drugs booklets and DVDs providing facts to keep themselves and others drug-free.
These materials serve as the backbone of the international “Truth About Drugs” educational program. All the proceeds raised from the concert will be used to spread the Truth About Drugs program to at-risk youth, educators, law enforcement personnel and community leaders throughout the state of Florida.
President of The Foundation of a Drug-Free World’s Florida Chapter, Julieta Santagostino, stated: “When young people have their questions about drugs fully answered, and are given the ‘truth’, they are much more likely to make good decisions concerning taking drugs in the first place. Humanitarian and Scientology founder, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard once said, ‘The single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs’ and this is what we are fighting against.”
