Golden Eagle Distributors, Inc. Promotes Responsibility
at Country Thunder
Florence, AZ– While Country Thunder is all about the music, event organizers are stepping up
plans to promote responsibility among festival goers.
Country Thunder and Golden Eagle Distributors, Inc., the local Anheuser-Busch distributor, are
teaming up to ensure that everyone has a great time at the event by promoting responsible
drinking and implementing measures to help prevent underage drinking and drunk driving.
“Country Thunder and Golden Eagle Distributors, Inc., are doing an outstanding job in stepping up
and promoting the message of responsibility for this event,” says Brian Andrews, Producer,
Country Thunder. “We want everyone to enjoy their time at Country Thunder, but we also want to
encourage smart decisions and make sure everyone gets home safely.”
At the event, Responsibility Matters signage will be displayed, Responsibility Matters messages
will be announced reminding concert goers to designate a driver and drink responsibly, and
wristbands will be used to identify those of legal drinking age. This year, headlining entertainment
will end at approximately 10:30pm to allow those traveling to get home early. For those staying
onsite or wishing to enjoy more entertainment, entertainment will continue until 2am. Country
Thunder is also making available last minute accommodations to those who should not drive
“Country Thunder is always an enjoyable event for the community to come together and enjoy a
great weekend of live music,” says Kimberly Clements, President, Golden Eagle Distributors, Inc.
“But we want to make sure the celebration is fun and safe – and for adults who choose to drink –
this means drinking responsibly and always using a designated driver.”
