ORANGE OUT FOR OWEN ON APRIL 3rd
CBS 21 will again partner with Owen’s Foundation on Tuesday, April 3rd to hold our fourth annual “Orange Out for Owen” day to help raise awareness of the consequences of distracted driving. Schools, businesses, and viewers are invited to show their support by taking a photo of themselves wearing orange and posting it on the CBS 21 News Facebook page or on Instagram and Twitter with #Orange4Owen and #CBS21OrangeOut.
“April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month,” said CBS 21 Creative Services Director Brett Freitag. “This is a great time to build awareness for our Drive Safe Central PA program and partner with a special organization like Owen’s Foundation to help stop the epidemic of distracted driving. Owen’s tragic story reminds us just how important this issue is.”
Owen Cole Brezitski was an eight-year-old boy killed by a distracted driver in 2011 while crossing the street with his family in front of Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg. Owen’s Foundation was born out of this tragedy. CBS 21 will promote this event and the Drive Safe Central PA program on Tuesday, April 3rd.
Drive Safe Central PA focuses on raising awareness of the dangers of driving while distracted. Through television, digital and live events, CBS 21, Owen’s Foundation, Renewal By Andersen, Capital BlueCross, and our other Drive Safe partners including Renewal by Andersen, Freeburn & Hamilton, Faulkner Honda and Select Collision are asking Central Pennsylvanians to take the pledge to not drive distracted.
