Bob Hall, LLC and Anheuser Busch, working together with the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, the Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse and the Calvert and St. Mary’s Counties Community Traffic Safety Programs are sponsoring a Designated Driver program to be held during the annual opening of the Tiki Bar.  The program will run Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18 from noon to 10:00 p.m. 

Designated drivers who register will win an instant prize ranging from can coolies, sunglasses, and coolers to Grill SGT BBQ gift cards and more. Designated drivers will sign a pledge card, which will be entered into a drawing for four grand prizes.  This year’s first prize package is a $1,000 voucher toward a 6 night/7 day cruise for two on Carnival Line plus $200 cash, the second prize will be four Washington Nationals Baseball Tickets plus $150 in cash, a $250 total value.  Third prize is a $50 Tiki Bar gift card and $100 in cash and the fourth prize is a $50 Visa card from the CAASA Designated Driver Rewards Program.  The registration booth is located near the Tiki Bar entrance.

Sheriff Mike Evans will draw the grand prize tickets during a ceremony at the Sheriff’s Office on Monday, April 27th at 1:00 in the afternoon. The public is invited to attend.

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and Maryland State Police, as well as law enforcement from neighboring jurisdictions, will be conducting DUI saturation patrols throughout the weekend as part of Maryland’s “Checkpoint Strikeforce - Over the Limit, Under Arrest” campaign.  These enforcement efforts are funded through the State Highway Administration’s Maryland Highway Safety Office and will continue throughout the spring and summer months.  Areas where a high number of DUI arrests or crashes have occurred in the past will be targeted for enforcement efforts.
