In Memory of Young Girl, 'Designated Driver' Program Launching in Murrieta

A Murrieta restaurant becomes the first in the community to support this “Designated Driver” program.

The following is a community announcement which originally appeared on May 15.

New Designated Driver Program Starting May 22

Tiffany’s Gift is proud to announce the launch of a new designated driver program.

The public is invited to attend a launch event at 4pm on May 22 at The Shamrock Irish Pub in Murrieta.

The program allows for Shamrock patrons identified as the designated driver with a party of 2 or more, to receive free soft drinks and an appetizer.  During the kickoff event, staff at The Shamrock will be wearing ribbons promoting and creating interest in the program.  

“There is a huge need for programs like this in our community.  I have had conversations with Murrieta Police Chief, Sean Hadden; Murrieta Police Captain, Dennis Vrooman and many members of the Murrieta Chamber of Commerce…all have expressed their utmost support for this program,” commented Debbie Breslin.

Tiffany’s Gift, formally named “The Tiffany Amber Breslin Memorial Fund”, was created by Debbie, Mike, and Lauren Breslin. Tiffany’s Gift is a 501(c) 3, non-profit foundation.  

On Saturday July 5, 2008 two innocent lives were tragically taken at the hands of a drinking boater. Tiffany Amber Breslin, 14 and Desiree Leigh Hobill, 19 were struck by a boat while sitting on the Breslin family sea-doo on the Colorado River in Needles, California. Tiffany suffered a traumatic brain injury that ultimately led to her passing on July 6th, 2008.

In honor of Tiffany’s memory the Breslin family has dedicated the past 6 years to informing the public about the dangers of drinking and driving any vessel or vehicle.  

The Breslin family’s ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving and to prevent this kind of tragedy from happening to other families.

I am surprised that this is a first in our area. In other areas, in LA county, this was common practice at many bars. Come on Riverside county! Get real!

I'm sorry for all parties involved. However I have a long time friend who has spent many of his vacations with the family on the river boating and drinking. My husband and I went out with them once and it was enough. From what I saw it was full on partiers drinking and boating to intoxication. Not just his group but many other boaters as well. Drinking and boating needs to be curtailed. The sun, water and alcohol with little food don't mix well leading to in many cases quicker and unexpected intoxication. 2 years after our trip on the river with them our friend lost his 24 year old son to boating and drinking on Lake Havasu. He was the one drunk and caused the accident resulting in the loss of his own life. Ironically his mom and dad sold their boat and haven't been back to the river since.
