On November 2, 2011, Victim Services Advocate Danielle Lawton of Waterbury Superior Court was presented with the Victim Assistance Award at a dinner given by Mothers Against Drunk Driving held at Anthony’s Ocean View in New Haven.  The Community Champions Ceremony is held each year to honor those individuals and businesses who continually work to eliminate drunk driving on our roads.

   “MADD volunteers are true community champions,” says Janice Heggie Margolis, Executive Director of MADD Connecticut.  “All of the recipients are an inspiration to MADD’s commitment to move forward together in our battle to fight drunk driving, help those who are victims of the nation’s most frequently committed violent crime, and prevent underage drinking.”
