A crash in 1999 tragically connected five families
by the deaths of four innocent children
and permanantly altered the life of a fifth.
A drunk driver caused the crash.

VISION STATEMENT

It is the Vision of the Precious Gems Memorial, Inc., to save lives by protecting our communities from Drunk Drivers. We do this first and foremost by working with our communities to increase public awareness of the dangers of Drunk Driving. We work with young people and participate in community-based events where we can distribute literature and talk to people about making a commitment to safe driving and responsible alcohol consumption. The Precious Gems Memorial is dedicated to keeping the memory of our girls alive. On April 6th, 1999, Megan Blong, Amanda Geiger, Shana Lawler, and Angela McGrady were all killed by the same drunk driver. Each one was in her own way a shining example of youth, hope, and love of life. It is important that people know how much was lost in just one senseless act of criminal recklessness. Our uncompromising intolerance for Drunk Driving is dedicated in loving memory to them.
