The World’s Most Refreshing Beer is teaming up with F.E.B. Distributing and Coast DD, the Gulf Coast’s premiere designated driving service, to bring safe rides to the Gulfport Music Festival. Beginning Thursday, Coors Light will provide participants with $25 vouchers towards a ride with Coast DD, valid on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through the morning of Sunday, May 11th.

“With great beer comes great responsibility,” said Tim Wold, vice president of F.E.B. Distributing Company. “That’s why we are proud to team up with Coors Light and Coast DD to help make this year’s Gulfport Music Festival the safest one yet.”

Vouchers will be distributed at the Gulfport Music Festival. To redeem the voucher, passengers can call Coast DD or simply download their smartphone app to summon a driver for a safe ride home. Vouchers are valid each night during designated hours (see times below).

“We are delighted to have the support of Coors Light and F.E.B. Distributing to help keep our community safe,” said Emily Holmes, founder of Coast DD. “We know drunk driving is completely preventable, and we urge everyone celebrating at the music festival to take advantage of this great program for a safe ride home.”

Over the past 26 years, Miller Lite and Coors Light have provided more than 4.1 million safe rides during holidays and events in more than 16 communities across the country. These programs have gained the involvement and support of local law enforcement, public safety agencies, state chapters of M.A.D.D. and other community and government organizations.
