Family Bike Night at Friday Night Live in Lincoln Center

July 19,2013

Dominic’s Designated Driver was a featured booth at this event, and we collected raffle tickets for entry into a contest where participants could win a brand new bike if they biked to the event. We also passed out lots of information about participating bars, clubs, and restaurants in the surrounding area, in addition to lots of DDD goodies like wristbands, license plate frames, water bottles, stickers, buttons, and key chain lanyards.


The Dominic Deiro Story”                                      At San Joaquin Delta College

April 30, 2013


This event presented to the campus community an informed discussion of the individual responsibilities involved in public behavior. The focus was on Dominic Deiro—who he was, how he influenced others, how he lost his life—and on his family’s decision to educate others on the importance of responsibility and accountability through Dominic’s Designated Driver. Mia Deiro Douglass was the keynote speaker, and other presenters included Bobby Wells (Dominic’s best friend), Officer Craig Wood, and Cheryl De La Cruz of the Scholarship Department. After the event, there was a memory tree that the Writers Guild constructed, where people could write down their specific thoughts, comments, and memories. Special thanks to Bob Bini, The Hip Hop Congress, and the Writers Guild for organizing and promoting the event!

April 26-28, 2013

Special thanks to Chuck Flesher for his hard work in setting our displays up!


Every 15 Minutes at St. Mary’s High School

Second Annual Dominic’s Designated Driver Golf Tournament


February 23, 2013


Dominic's Designated Driver held its second annual golf tournament Feb. 23, 2013 at Swenson Park Golf Course in Stockton. Approximately 144 golfers participated in this 18-hole event, and an additional 82 non-golfers also attended the dinner held afterward. Between the tournament, dinner, raffle, and live auction, the event raised $13,000. A portion of these proceeds will be used to fund scholarships for students at Presentation School, St. Mary's High School and San Joaquin Delta College. The remaining funds will be utilized by the program to provide the community with DDD wristbands, stickers, and educational material.
