|Fans who attended the Miami Dolphins game versus the Buffalo Bills on Sunday were treated to a great afternoon of football and responsibility! Fans also helped the Dolphins pass the Buffalo Bills and take the lead in the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge between the Dolphins, Bills and Jets. The Dolphins, Bud Light and TEAM Coalition partnered to promote responsible drinking and traffic safety at Sun Life Stadium, encouraging fans to become designated drivers.Throughout the game, 1,590 fans made the pledge to be a Good Sport – a designated driver for their group, earning the Miami Dolphins 6 points (or a touchdown) for each designated driver. 19,498 others helped the Miami Dolphins earn their lead in this year’s Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge by liking the Miami Dolphins Facebook post about the challenge. Each Facebook “like” is worth one point (or an extra point) in the Designated Driver Challenge Standings. All the designated drivers at the game had the opportunity to autograph a Miami Dolphins Graffiti Board and receive a free souvenir photo.
At the end of the season, one randomly selected Designated Driver will be selected as the Miami Dolphins Designated Driver for the Season, representing the Dolphins in the Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes. If the Miami Dolphins make it to the Super Bowl, the Designated Driver for the Season and a guest will receive two tickets, hotel and airfare to watch their favorite team.
“For 30 years, Anheuser-Busch has led our industry in developing responsible drinking initiatives and Bud Light Good Sport, one of our most visible programs, promotes positive fan behavior through the use of designated drivers,” said Kathy Casso, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility at Anheuser-Busch. “We all share the same streets after the game. This partnership with the National Football League, participating stadiums, concessionaires, TEAM Coalition and football fans displays our collective responsibility to help keep our roads safe.”
“The success of the Responsibility Has Its Rewards campaign is a direct result of the commitment from our members and all the designated driver program partners, including the teams, beer companies and wholesalers,” said Jill Pepper, executive director of TEAM Coalition. “Teamwork is what this campaign is all about. We are demonstrating that when everyone – including the fans – takes responsibility, everyone wins.”
