Buffalo Thunder Resort will host a walk to benefit high school students at Pojoaque for their 2nd annual after prom fundraising event.
For just $10 for adults and $5 for youth, the Walk to Stop DUI is a 5K, noncompetitive walk geared toward businesses and their employees, family members and individuals to raise funds through pledges. Walkers collect pledges from family, friends, and co-workers and all monies raised support the Santa Fe County DWI Program’s mission to stop Underage Drinking and Driving Under the Influence of drugs and alcohol. This event is sponsored by the Santa Fe County DWI Program and Santa Fe County Public Safety Division (Sheriff’s Office, Fire Dept. and Dept. of Corrections).
This walk begins at the Buffalo Thunder Resort on Saturday. Registration is from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m.
“The money raised will go towards the purchase of doors prizes such as laptop computers, flat screen TVs, Nooks, gas cards, digital cameras,” said Victoria De Vargas, a coordinator for the event.
They also hope to raise enough to provide students with complimentary photos and frames for each participant and to purchase breakfast burritos for the Post Prom Party for Pojoaque High School. For more information, check their website at santafecountynm.gov under hot topics or call 995-6529.
