M.A.D.D. and Boys & Girls Club Team Up

Three, giant movie screens side-by-side by. But it wasn't your typical movie on the big screen.

Hundreds of East Texas children at the Boys & Girls Club of East Texas were shown a fun, educational movie sponsored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The movie was geared for kids to teach them how to make good choices.

One person who knows the experience all too well, Steve Prestidge who works at the Boys and Girls Club. He was hit by a drunk driver.

"Everything that I do comes off of experiences that I went through if I can help these teens or these kids make better decisions than I made and help them be successful," said Steve.

This video created for junior high, and another created for high school-aged kids are part of a M.A.D.D nationwide campaign.

Sixteen locations across East Texas have seen the videos.
