The Stevens Point Area Senior High chapter of HOSA, an organization for future health professionals, is committed to raising awareness about the dangers of alcoholism in our community. As part of this effort, group leaders, Mya Cullen, Sylvia Tepp, Hannah Clark, and Cassie Damask, are coordinating an event on Friday, January 20th during/after the varsity boys basketball game at SPASH.


The event will feature information and resources about the dangers of misusing alcohol, as well as activities and games to promote education and awareness. Attendees will also have the opportunity to make donations to the local Salvation Army Substance Abuse Prevention Program.

"We believe that it is important for our community to be informed about the risks associated with alcohol use," said Cassie Damask, member of the SPASH HOSA chapter. "We hope that this event will not only raise awareness, but also encourage healthy habits and support those who may be struggling with substance abuse."

The event is open to the public and all are welcome to attend. Proceeds will be donated to the Salvation Army Substance Abuse Prevention Program to support the organization's efforts to prevent and treat substance abuse in the community.
