I attend my fair share of galas during the year and I believe the 2019 B.R.A.K.E.S Gala that had a roaring 20’s theme stole the show to date. Doug Herbert founder of Put On The B.R.A.K.E.S put the tragedy of loosing his 2 sons Jon and James in a fatal car crash, and created B.R.A.K.E.S. Teen Pro-Active Driving School. Every year B.R.A.K.E.S puts on themed galas to raise money for the non-profit based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
B.R.A.K.E.S. Teen Pro-Active Driving School is a free, defensive driving program designed for teenagers, ages 15-19 (16-20 in NC) who already have a learner’s permit or driver’s license and have at least 30 hours of driving experience. Check them out.
