Recipients of the Future of New Jersey Award are chosen by the DARE New Jersey Board of Directors in recognition of individuals who have made extraordinary efforts and shown exceptional commitment promoting DARE New Jersey’s mission to teach drug abuse and violence resistance education to New Jersey’s youth through strong collaboration with parents, educators, law enforcement, and community and government leaders. Former, recent recipients of the Future of New Jersey Award include Governor Chris Christie (2013), Joseph M. Sanzari, President of Joseph M. Sanzari, Inc. (2011), Mark Giannantonio, President & CEO of Tropicana Casino and Resort and Senator Joe Kyrillos (2010) and former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine and Robert Wood Johnson IV, owner of the NY Jets (2008).
Doug has been involved with DARE New Jersey for many years, serving first on its Board of Directors and, since the fall of 2013, as its general counsel. When asked why DARE, Doug stated, “DARE NJ is one of the largest and most successful organizations of its kind. Each year, DARE NJ officers teach more than one hundred thousand children about the devastating and potentially deadly effects of drug abuse and youth violence. DARE’s impact is a testament to DARE NJ’s leadership and the commitment and dedication of the DARE officers who teach, and the school districts that welcome, the most effective drug and violence avoidance curriculum in the country. I look forward to supporting DARE’s continued mission and I am honored to receive this recognition together with my good friend and DARE New Jersey Director John McCann.”
Doug will accept the award at the Future of New Jersey Gala, which will take place on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 6:30PM in the Robbinsville Expo Center located in Robbinsville, New Jersey.
