Sprint Waste Supports the Fight Against Substance Abuse

We’re proud to support the important work of the Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse as a gold sponsor for the Eighth Annual Helen Cordes Award Dinner.

The annual fundraising dinner and auction is at 6:30 p.m. ronight at Sugar Creek Country Club in Sugar Land, Texas. The guest speaker is bicyclist Dotsie Bausch, an Olympian and silver medalist from the London 2012 Olympic Games and a seven-time U.S. National Champion, former world record holder, and two-time Pan American gold medal winner.

Live auction items include dinner for six with Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls at Lomonte’s Italian Restaurant, use of two adjoining suites and tickets for 40 at Constellation Field for a Sugar Land Skeeters home baseball game, a pre-Halloween party for 12 to include dinner and tours of some of Fort Bend County’s premiere haunts, and a hunter’s dream package to include meals and lodging at RBR Ranch, a European mount of your animal and a new Stoeger Condor 20-guage shotgun and case.

The Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse dates back to 1976 when the area was mostly rural and much less populated, making it more difficult for residents to seek help for drug and alcohol addiction. FTBC opened its doors to provide addiction services to individuals and families and has grown impressively along with the area. Today the FBRC addresses substance abuse through youth prevention, education and leadership development programs; treatment for individuals and families struggling with addiction; and outreach programs to help families and communities stay safe.

Sprint Waste founder and partner Reagan Swinbank sits on the organization’s board of directors. “Fort Bend County is fortunate to have an organization like FBRC that works so hard to help families avoid, stop and get treatment for substance abuse,” he said. “We’re happy to lend support to tonight’s dinner and the unique prevention and education programs that help so many families in our area.”
