Bars, restaurants and nightclubs participating in CHEERS provide FREE non-alcoholic drinks to the acknowledged designated driver in a group of two or more. It's a way of saying thanks for caring about your friends and community! This program was designed to increase the amount of designated drivers throughout the SVSU community. Local establishment owners have been asked to adopt the program. Look for bars, restaurants and nightclubs that support CHEERS. Encourage establishments to adopt the program.
No. A designated driver is anyone who agrees to remain sober in order to be able to drive others home safely. As long as you are old enough to drive and are old enough to be allowed in the establishment, you can participate in CHEERS. Just show your SVSU ID to your server to participate.
No, sorry. The CHEERS program cannot pick you up.
Please call our CHEERS Coordinator, Lindsey Zietz at 989-964-4658. She greatly appreciates your feedback and will contact the establishment.
Of course not, why would we give designated drivers alcohol? It's your job to drive home safe.
A DESIGNATED DRIVER is someone who consumes no alcohol at all, not even one drink.
If you don't want to be the designated driver, please, for your life and the lives of others, take one with you!
