TEAM Georgia Receives Award/Recognition for 25 years of Service


(ATLANTA) At Turner Field, the Atlanta Braves proudly recognized TEAM Georgia for its

25 years of service prior to Sundayʼs baseball game with the Washington Nationals. TEAM

Georgia is the stateʼs premier safe and sober driving coalition made up of the hospitality

industry and other business leaders, public safety officials, citizens and members of Atlanta

sporting teams and venues.


In appreciation for TEAM Georgiaʼs years of service and commitment to Atlanta Braves

fans and the local community, Atlanta Bravesʼ outfielder Reid Johnson presented an

autographed baseball bat to Team Georgia Chairman Ron Fennel, Treasurer Bob Wilson

and Executive Director Bob Cucchi on the field. The inscription: “Thank you TEAM Georgia

25 years of service” signed by Reed Johnson #7.


TEAM Georgia manages and operates the designated driver booth at Turner Field with its

partner, Budweiser through its Good Sport Program. TEAM Georgiaʼs goal is to educate

and secure fan commitment to be designated drivers and encourage all fans to act

responsibly, particularly on the roadways and waterways of our state.


TEAM Georgia Designated Driver Booths are located at Turner Field, the Georgia Dome,

Philips Arena and the Gwinnett Arena. Designated Driver Booth volunteers encourage fans

to secure a designated driver when attending sporting, music and cultural events at these

venues. Volunteers seek fans to sign up as designated drivers prior to and during games

at these professional sporting venues. Since the Designated Driver Booth programs

began, over 320,000 individuals have pledged to serve as Designated Drivers and

received information on impaired driving and Georgiaʼs DUI laws.
