BUZZKILL will serve as a safe and open environment giving community members an opportunity to learn and discuss ways to be safe and responsible behind the wheel.

On October 24, 2012, at 7:00 pm, The LEV Foundation's college committee, LEV.Generation will be hosting BUZZKILL, a symposium being held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza aimed at educating youth and parents about the risks of intoxicated and distracted driving.

BUZZKILL is an interactive seminar designed to teach the community about the dangers of drunk driving, texting while driving, and distracted driving. This event will feature prominent members of the Los Angeles community, including Beverly Hills police officer Dan Tanner, neurological sergeant Dr. Bob Shaffa, and family members of drunk driving victims including a representative from M.A.D.D., and Karen Setian of the Vahagn Setian Charitable Foundation. BUZZKILL will serve as a safe and open environment giving community members an opportunity to learn and discuss ways to be safe and responsible behind the wheel.

Admission is free for children between the ages of 13-17 (with valid ID) and $15 for adults ages 18 and up.

Due to the graphic nature of this event, children under the age of 13 are not admitted.

The LEV Foundation ("LEV") is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created in honor of Daniel D. Levian, the unfortunate victim of a drunk-driving accident. LEV was established and is run by students and young professionals seeking to engage our youth in becoming self aware and vigilant while educating our community of the risks associated with alcohol and substance abuse, and intoxicated and distracted driving. To date LEV has produced youth-to-parent seminars, high school mentorship programs, young professional events and has hosted more than 2,000 parents and children in discussions aimed at opening lines of communication between the youth and their parents. Through the ThinkSmart campaign The LEV Foundation has helped sponsor community wide events with thousands of free and reduced fare taxi rides, promoting our community to use designated drivers to avoid having to drive while intoxicated.
