The tournament is sponsored by the Ocean City Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention Committee, Inc., is a 501c(3) tax-exempt organization.
Contributions are tax deductible, as provided by law.
The #1 task that the committee is responsible for is the Play it Safe project. The mission of Play it Safe is to encourage high school graduates to make informed, healthy choices while having responsible fun without the use of alcohol and other drugs. Play it Safe sponsors free special alcohol and drug-free events during June honoring high school graduates who choose to celebrate their graduation in Ocean City, Maryland.
Each summer, thousands of recently graduates travel to Ocean City, many of who are on their own for the first time. Ocean City has decided to be pro-active and provide these graduates with something to do to help keep them busy. As many adults know, if you don't give children something to do, then sometimes they may find the wrong things to do. This is also true with the high school graduates that come to Ocean City.
In 1989, then Governor, William Donald Schaefer asked the Mayor of Ocean City, Roland Powell to set up a committee to fight the abuse of alcohol and other drugs in our community. Thus was born, the Ocean City Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention Committee, Inc. The committee works in partnership with state and local government agencies, as well as many businesses and concerned citizens.
Currently the committee is comprised of members from the Town of Ocean City Police Department, the Ocean City Recreation & Parks Department, Worcester County Health Department, Department of Juvenile Services personnel, local school administrators, teachers, students volunteers from community service organizations, and many caring and concerned citizens.
