Get MADD for a sweet cause

Statistics show drinking and driving is the cause of thousands of accidents on Valley roadways each year.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving has found a sweet way to raise awareness.

Anna Verley is with the organization and joined us on Sunrise to explain.

She told us they will have The Mocktails and Cupcakes event in conjunction with CC's Sweets and Tweets in McAllen located on 5401 N. 10th St. Suite #117. This will happen on Wednesday October 9, between 6pm and 8pm.

Verley told us that they will have free mini cupcakes and Mocktails!

They have created a cupcake specifically for MADD for the Walk Like MADD Cupcake and they are selling it in the shop between October 1st and November 2nd and donating back $1 to the walk for every cupcake that is sold.

Then next month, she said they will hold their 2nd Annual Walk Like MADD event in Brownsville on November 2, 2013. You can get more info at
