Do you know someone who lives, works, does business or worships in Anderson County who cares for its citizens and is passionate about creating a healthy and productive Anderson County? Consider nominating them for Anderson County Ally of the Year! ASAP’s Anderson County Ally of the Year campaign is a fundraising competition during January, coinciding with the Red Ribbon Rivalry among a select group of individuals in the community. While each candidate conducts their own campaign, all candidates are united by one goal: to use their leadership, influence and communication skills to raise funds to help prevent and reduce substance misuse in Anderson County.
ASAP of Anderson County has made significant reductions in the number of Anderson County students who have used alcohol, tobacco and marijuana, including a 43% reduction over the past two years in the number of students who drink alcohol. However, ASAP relies on the generosity of individuals and business to continue these efforts. By accepting the nomination, candidates will have from December 15, 2014 to January 29, 2015 to accumulate the most “votes.” Every dollar raised counts as one vote. The individual who raises the most votes during the campaign will be named the Anderson County Ally of the Year at the Awards Luncheon on Jan 30, 2015.
Proceeds from the 2015 Anderson County Ally of the Year campaign will be used to support ASAP’s mission to prevent and reduce youth substance misuse in Anderson County by collaborating with community partners to implement effective intervention strategies. All money raised in this campaign will be used responsibly here in Anderson County. To nominate an individual you will need to submit the individual’s name and an explanation of why you feel they deserve to be Anderson County’s Ally of the Year. Nominations can be made at www.ASAPofAnderson.org, e-mailing ASAPofAnderson@gmail.com or calling 865-457-3007 by November 30th.
