HENSLEY BEVERAGE COMPANY TEAMS WITH ANHEUSER-BUSCH TO URGE PHOENIX METRO RESIDENTS TO CARE ENOUGH TO GET HOME SAFELY!
Phoenix, Arizona (Sept. 16, 2016) – On September 16th, 2016, employees of Hensley Beverage Company will celebrate Anheuser-Busch’s seventh annual Global Beer Responsible Day by spreading Budweiser’s drunk-driving prevention message: To Care Enough to Get Home Safely.
Global Beer Responsible Day is now in its seventh year. For years we have supported the idea of planning ahead for a safe ride home and this Budweiser campaign helps that message resonate not only with our employees, but consumers as well. While our efforts to encourage responsible drinking take place all year long, one day each year we participate in this special global effort with Anheuser-Busch and its sister companies to raise awareness for alcohol responsibility.
“At Hensley Beverage Company, we’re determined to play our part in keeping our community safe,” said Doug Yonko, Vice President of Communications, at Hensley Beverage Company. “Global Beer Responsible Day is a great opportunity to come together and stress the importance of responsible drinking. The message is clear: take a cab, call a friend, or designate a driver. Care enough to get home safely. No excuses.”
