Evansville’s Logan’s Promise Offering Tickets to See Cardinals-Cubs and More in 2022 Online Auction
The month of March is no doubt a tougher one than all the others for the family of Logan Brown. The Reitz High School student died on March 14th, 2015 when the car he was riding in with friends was struck by a car being driven by then-38-year-old Michael Gann on University Parkway just south of USI on Evansville's west side. Gann's blood-alcohol level was four times Indiana's legal limit of 0.08%.
But, as we often see in times of tragedy, those impacted by it the most, in this case, Logan's family, particularly his parents, use the pain they're experiencing to make a positive impact on their community. For Logan's family, that meant taking an active role in getting impaired drivers off the streets by keeping them from getting on them in the first place. Led by Logan's father, Charles Brown, the mission of Logan's Promise is to share the reverberating effects drunk driving has not only on the victim, but their family, friends, and surrounding community by sharing Logan's story.
2022 Logan's Promise Online Auction
Beyond sharing Logan's story and the impacts of impaired driving, the organization has also taken a hands-on role in keeping impaired drivers off the streets by periodically offering free rides home through their Safe Ride Program. Available to residents of Vanderburgh, Warrick, Posey, and Gibson Counties a few times each year, the program teams with Lyft to cover the cost of rides home for those residents who had a little too much fun during a night out with friends through the use of specially-created promo codes. They also offer scholarships to area high school students who make the promise to not drink and drive.
Of course, it takes money to make both of those things possible. In an effort to raise the funds they need, Logan's Promise is hosting a "Bid It to Win It" online auction through their Facebook page until March 19th.
