19th Annual Drug-Free Kids Campaign Awards Dinner

October 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us to celebrate our 2017 Drug-Free Kids Campaign.

CADCA represents more than 5,000 community coalitions, working together to create a world of safe, healthy and drug-free communities. The epidemic rise in prescription drug and heroin abuse, and our continued struggle with underage drinking, tobacco and other drugs is a tragic burden on our nation’s health, safety and economy. Thankfully, there is a global movement, led by CADCA and thousands of youth and adult coalition leaders, that is empowering youth, saving lives and transforming communities. Help us Engineer Healthy Communities! – for your family, your community, and your world.

While no community and few families escape the pain of drug abuse, it takes consistent and persistent action from all of us to sustain healthy and safe environments for youth so they can be the leaders of today and tomorrow. CADCA’s annual Drug-Free Kids Campaign Awards Dinner brings together over 300 corporate supporters, federal partners, members of congress and coalitions leaders from around the country who are committed to reversing the tide on drug abuse and addiction.

CADCA’s Drug-Free Kids Campaign represents the community coalition movement, whose goal is to combat youth drug-use and abuse through a comprehensive, multi-sector approach. It takes the work of all of our sponsors and partners who join CADCA’s mission to strengthen the capacity of community coalitions to create and maintain safe, healthy and drug-free communities globally. The Campaign recognizes organizations and individuals who have contributed in a singularly outstanding manner to our cause of keeping America’s youth safe and drug-free.
