[INSERT CITY, STATE] As [INSERT NAME OF TOWN OR COMMUNITY] students prepare to celebrate this [INSERT SEASON OR EVENT], [INSERT SPONSORING ORGANIZATION] members will be taking it to the next level by throwing the biggest party of the season on [INSERT EVENT DATE] at [INSERT VENUE OR LOCATION]. The party is being co-sponsored by the NOYS (National Organizations for Youth Safety) as a part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) You Drink & Drive. You Lose. campaign.

[INSERT NAME AND TITLE] from [INSERT ORGANIZATION] said, "Were going to bring the club atmosphere to [INSERT VENUE] and show people that they don't need to shell out big bucks at the dance clubs, and more important, don't have to drink or use drugs, to have a great time. This party, and our future events, will prove that in a big way."

To create that club feel, [INSERT ORGANIZATION] has recruited the talents of [INSERT LOCAL DJ OR CELEBRITY] to set the mood. A variety of music will be played throughout the night, and there will be numerous prizes, raffles and giveaways awarded to lucky attendees.

[INSERT ORGANIZATION] representatives also say that guests are in store for more than a few surprises.

[INSERT NAME AND TITLE] from [INSERT ORGANIZATION] said, "With all of the work we've put into the food and entertainment, were sure that this event will truly be a night to remember, and the beginning of a series of great times for our school and community."

[INSERT ORGANIZATION] has planned a number of other events for the coming months, including [INSERT PARTY IDEA], [INSERT NEXT PARTY IDEA] and [INSERT FAVORITE PARTY IDEA]. Guests are encouraged to get tickets for the event, as space is limited. The tickets are free but will be given to students on a "first-come, first-serve" basis only, with a limit of two tickets per student.

Tickets can be obtained at the [INSERT ORGANIZATION] office, or through a group representative.
