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.
