Parents Who Host Lose the Most 2017 Campaign
Posted: May 9, 2017
Parents Who Host Lose the Most is a program which the Randolph Municipal Alliance Committee (MAC) is utilizing to bring awareness to teens and parents about the consequences of hosting teen drinking parties.
The campaign is designed to educate parents regarding the risks—legal and otherwise—of serving alcohol at teen parties.
At its May 4, 2017 meeting, the township council recognized the month of May as “Parents Who Host, Lose the Most: Don’t Be a Party to Teenage Drinking” month.
A few facts about underage use of alcohol and the law:
- It is a criminal offense in New Jersey to serve alcohol to anyone who is under the legal age of 21.
- It is a criminal offense in New Jersey to make your home or property available for the purpose of allowing minors a place to consume alcohol.
- New Jersey’s Social Host Liability Law imposes civil penalties on social hosts who serve alcohol to minors who subsequently are involved in incidents causing death or injury.
Parents Who Host, Lose the Most was developed by Drug-Free Action Alliance.
