Bachus & Schanker, LLC is proud to announce their sponsorship of the 2nd Annual Wall-Bop Golf Tournament to be held on July 12, 2008 at The Homestead Golf Course in Lakewood, Colorado.
Brandon Nichols and Paul Ondrish were killed in a one-car accident on July 13, 2006. The boys were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident.
The Wall-Bop Golf Tournament is a way to celebrate not only the love of life and golf that "Paul-Wall" and "B-Bop," as Paul and Brandon were affectionately known to their friends, possessed but also as a way to raise funds for the Brandon & Paul Foundation formed in their memories. The mission of the Brandon & Paul Foundation is to support educational programs for young drivers that focus on the importance of making good decisions and safe driving habits.
The Alive at 25 Safety Council Program
Most of the proceeds from this yearís event will go to the Alive at 25 Program, a partnership of the National Safety Council, the Colorado State Patrol and the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation as well as the National Safety Councilís newly launched Alive at 25 Parent Program.
The Alive at 25 Program focuses on the attitudes and behaviors that affect young drivers, and prepares them to deal with dangerous driving habits and situations. The National Safety Council developed the Alive at 25 Parent Program to help parents properly prepare their teens to drive by developing a clear understanding of the risks they face. The 3-hour course identifies those risks and helps parents reinforce basic driving skills and good decision-making to help teens to become safe, responsible, and defensive drivers. The parents of Brandon and Paul appear in a video entitled "Not Our Families" that is shown during the Parent Program, and have participated in the pilot class and the Colorado instructor training class.
