For Release: 
May 13, 2013

Gurnee, IL – To kickoff Alcohol Awareness Month, more than a thousand community volunteers will visit liquor establishments throughout the State of Illinois including some in the Village of Gurnee.

 "Your Action Matters" is sponsored by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission's “Don't Be Sorry” campaign. Consisting of teenagers, law enforcement personnel and community leaders, these volunteers 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—visit liquor establishments during “Project Sticker Shock,” a statewide effort. Mayor Kristina Kovarik will be participating in the event again this year.

 WHEN:           Tuesday May 14th, 2013, beginning at 2:30 PM; Gurnee Police Department

 WHERE:        After a briefing, volunteers will proceed to Cardinal Liquors, Jewel Osco, 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; 847-599-7080.
