FEBRUARY 9, 2007 - The Michigan Liquor Control Commission and The Century Council will be teaming up with two Michigan licensees on Monday, February 12th for "We Don't Serve Teens" events to campaign to raise public awareness about the dangers of underage drinking and to celebrate establishments that proudly demonstrate they do not serve anyone under the age of 21.

The new "We Don't Serve Teens" national campaign is aimed at reducing underage drinking and focusing on the social sources that may provide teens with access to alcohol. The campaign's centerpiece is www.DontServeTeens.gov, a website sponsored by a coalition of public and private sector organizations, including the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency.

The Century Council is a national not-for-profit organization, funded by the nation's leading distillers, dedicated to fighting drunk driving and underage drinking.
