State of Illinois and the Village of Gurnee to “stick ‘em up” during Alcohol Awareness Month

GURNEE, IL - March 30, 2009 - To kickoff April as Alcohol Awareness Month, over a thousand community volunteers will visit liquor establishments throughout the state of Illinois on Sticker Shock Day (April 2, 2009), including businesses in Gurnee. "Project Sticker Shock" is sponsored by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission's “Don't Be Sorry” campaign.

Our local volunteers are teenagers, law enforcement personnel, Mayor Kovarik, and other community leaders, who will post stickers, window decals, posters, and signs to remind adults that it is illegal to provide alcohol to minors and for minors to use a fake ID.

Teenagers and adult chaperones—composed mainly of local law enforcement and local elected officials— will visit liquor establishments during the Sticker Shock Day statewide event.

WHEN: Thursday, April 2, 2009, beginning at 1:00 PM; Gurnee Police Department

WHERE: After a briefing, volunteers will proceed to Cardinal Liquors and Dino’s Liquors in Gurnee to post these materials

Anyone with questions about this event may contact the Gurnee Police Department’s crime prevention office at 847-599-7080. For more information on this public awareness program, please visit
