PR Newswire (Norwalk, CT) April 1, 2011 "April is Alcohol Awareness Month, and Diageo, the world's leading spirits, wine and beer company, and industry leader in promoting responsible drinking, marked the occasion by congratulating Apolo Ohno, the most decorated US Winter Olympian for presenting The Century Council's interactive 'Ask, Listen, Learn: Kids and Alcohol Don't Mix' program at the Cloonan Middle school in Stamford. Guy Smith, Executive Vice President, Diageo North America, a founding member of The Century Council, said of the event, 'Diageo employees are mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, grandmothers and grandfathers too, and we never want kids to consume our products. We know that educating them about the dangers of underage drinking can help and that is why Diageo is proud to support Apolo Ohno in his work with The Century Council and the Ask, Listen, Learn: Kids and Alcohol Don't Mix initiative.' The Century Council created an interactive, physical fitness activity that builds on the existing Ask, Listen, Learn program and encourages kids to 'say 'YES' to a healthy lifestyle and 'NO' to underage drinking.' The activity, as well as a supporting website, encourages kids to live a healthy lifestyle. The website also provides parents with information and strategies to help jumpstart the conversation about the dangers of underage drinking." Read More
