BUFFALO, NY - Designated Drivers of Buffalo are 1 of 350 finalists for the Pepsi Fresh Project that, if they place in the Top Ten, would award them $50,000.00

Michael Mule', owner of Designated Drivers of Buffalo, says he's been trying for 6 months to be considered for the contest and this month, his 2-year old company has made it.

The contest is based solely on votes.  Voting ends October 31st and those looking to cast a vote can do so by text or by going to the contest website.  Voters can place a vote up to twice a day. 

TEXT A VOTE TO: "103212" to PEPSI (73774)


Designated Drivers of Buffalo is a locally owned and operated company that picks up drunk drivers, and their cars, from where ever they are, then brings them home safely.  There is an annual fee and a cost per mile.  Learn more about Designated Drivers of Buffalo.

Mule' says if they win the money they plan to use it in two ways.  First, for an awareness campaign to get the word out about the safe service that's offered.  Second, the money would be used to subsidize rides on high traffic nights such as Thanksgiving Eve and St. Patricks Day, offering a discounted rate to customers looking for a ride home those evenings.
