The Save A Life Tour

Alcohol awareness program in memory of Brody Mulnix

On August 13, 2011, eight-year-old Brody Mulnix, of Sand Lake, spent the day with his family as an exhibitor at the Kent County Youth Fair. On the way home, a drunk driver ran a stop sign at Harvard and 14 Mile Rd, and slammed into the Mulnix family van, causing it to roll. Brody was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, Stacy Lynn Rosset, 37, of Howard City, was sentenced May 30 to a minimum of two years and a maximum of 15 years in prison on the charge of Operating while intoxicated causing death.

The Kent County Youth Fair is honoring Brody’s memory by presenting The Save A Life Tour, the Nation’s most advanced high-impact alcohol awareness program.

The tour, which features super high tech simulators, videos and personal testimonies and discussion, is designed to help drivers of all ages to make good decisions.

The tour will run from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday August 6 through Saturday 11, and is located in the Foreman building on the Kent County Youth Fairgrounds in Lowell. The video and discussion will be at 3 and 7 p.m. daily. There is no cost for this program.

“We hope that someday, someone who participated in this program will have their life saved or save another person’s life because he or she made a good decision based on what they experienced in the tour,” said Bruce Doll, Kent County Youth Fair Sr. Board Director. “We would like to see parents of young drivers and prospective drivers from all over the county take advantage of this program with their kids.”
