With prom just around the corner, several teens from the Boys & Girls Club’s Keystone leadership club teamed up with the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence-Orange County (NCADD-OC) to participate in Sticker Shock. The teens visited Broadway Liquor and Stop’n’Go in Laguna Beach, where store owners allowed them to place stickers on alcoholic beverages to discourage underage drinking.
