SoberRide still needs funds for Fourth
More than $13,000 has been received to help provide no-cost cab rides home for those too intoxicated to get behind the wheel over the July 4 holiday, but the group that has sponsored the program for 17 years remains $18,000 short of the money it needs.
The additional money came from four sources -- GEICO, the Century Council, the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington, and Capitol Outdoor -- after the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) said last week that the popular program called SoberRide was $31,000 short of the funding necessary to provide the July 4 service.
On Monday, WRAP chairman Alexa Kaufman expressed confidence that the remaining gap could be closed if individuals and business step forward to pledge support for the "effective safety valve to the region's high-risk and high alcohol consumption July holiday."
