The John R. Elliott HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers will kick off its 2019 summer HEROtini® Challenge Friday, May 24th, on the Atlantic City Boardwalk between the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Steel Pier and Resorts Casino Hotel.

Boardwalk visitors can vote on their favorite HEROtini® mocktails from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., followed then by a press conference with city and local officials to announce that day’s winning mocktail and launch the Campaign’s new Holiday HEROES Safe Ride Program.

The 2019 HEROtini® Challenge will be a summer-long competition between Atlantic City area bars, taverns and restaurants to find the area’s best mocktail, and provide funding for the HERO Campaign’s new Safe Ride Program, which will provide free and discounted rides home for patrons of participating HERO bars and taverns over the Thanksgiving to New Year holidays.
