17th Annual Drug-Free Kids Campaign Awards Dinner
More than 400 business leaders from the Washington, D.C. area and across the country attended CADCA’s 17th annual Drug-Free Kids Campaign Awards Dinner Oct. 7 in Washington, D.C. The Drug-Free Kids Campaign recognizes leaders who support CADCA’s effective substance abuse prevention model. Funds raised through the campaign help support CADCA’s efforts to build and strengthen local community coalitions and transform youth into civic leaders to reduce substance abuse.
The Honorable William Lacy Clay, Jr. (D-Mo.), a major champion for drug prevention, provided remarks. ABC7/WJLA anchorman Leon Harris served as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies. The Honorable Mary Bono, the 2015 Campaign Dinner Chair, also addressed the audience that included members of CADCA’s DC-area coalitions and its Coalition Advisory Committee.
CADCA honored Mark Trudeau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, as its Humanitarian of the Year for his personal commitment to help prevent teen drug use, support of CADCA’s mission and Mallinckrodt’s collaborative approach to addressing our nation’s opioid addiction crisis.
