PINELLAS PARK – Operation PAR is sponsoring a contest for non-alcoholic drink recipes to encourage less drinking and driving over the holidays. Entry deadline for the competition is Nov. 21.
With the holiday season approaching, there will be plenty of parties and opportunities to celebrate. Operation PAR hopes to encourage hosts to provide alcohol-free beverages to guests driving home after holiday festivities and to lower the number of DUIs and accidents related to alcohol.
Submit your favorite non-alcoholic drink recipe, and a team of judges will determine the top 10 submissions. Contestants should mail recipes to Operation PAR, Inc., 6655 66th St. N., Pinellas Park, FL 33781. All drink recipes submitted will be featured in a free publication.
The 10 finalists will be invited to a public event to prepare their drink for a panel of area celebrities, who will name a first-, second- and third-place winner. Celebrity judging will take place on Dec. 6 at 2:30 p.m. at the Shirley D. Coletti Academy for Behavioral Change.
