Logan’s Promise ‘Drive Thru to Remember’ Sunday March 14, 2021
Logan Brown was just days away from his 16th birthday, when his life tragically ended, because of a drunk driver. That driver chose to drive with a blood alcohol level four times the legal limit. Making the choice to drive after drinking alcohol, is never the right decision. Logan's dad, Charles Brown, decided to create the nonprofit Logan's Promise, to spread awareness about the very real realities of having a few drinks and then driving.
The Logan's Promise mission is to 'Engage people within the community and promote the understanding and action necessary to control drinking and driving; and to increase public awareness of these problems.'
Every year, Logan's Promise hosts the 'Walk to Remember', honoring family and friends who have been killed by impaired drivers. Last year, COVID caused the event to be canceled. This year, it will be a 'Drive Thru to Remember' Sunday. March 14, 2021 from 11:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M. at the Westside Home Depot. You'll be able to stop by and get your shirt, Hawg N Sauce pulled pork meal, penny and a map to the crash site. Then, you can visit the site when it's convenient for you. This will cut down on a large gathering, and provide a COVID safe experience.
Charles Brown joined us, to fill us in on this year's event.
Mayor Winnecke and City of Evansville proclaimed the Month of March as Logan's Promise Drunk Driving Victim's Remembrance Month.
In 2019, Logan's Promise brought their message to Gibson County, in honor of Trevor Watt of Princeton and James Gasaway of Haubstadt. On Saturday, September 1, 2018, the lives of the Gasaway and Watts families were changed forever. Trevor Watt of Princeton and James Gasaway of Haubstadt were killed in a tragic car wreck. They were so young...Only 19 and 20 years old. This was totally preventable. Indiana State Police said Ashley Sanders’ blood alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit, when she crashed into their car, at a high rate of speed.
