LAYTON -- The 6th Annual Anti-Drug and Alcohol Community Event is set for 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 21 at Ed Kenley Centennial Amphitheater, 403 N. Wasatch Drive, Layton.

The event is open to all.

"Be entertained, educated, and maybe win a prize," states a news release from 4thsolution.

The theme this year is "A Brighter Future," showing that for those involved in drug or alcohol abuse, there is always a way back.

The event is organized by 4thesolution in association with local cities and sheriff's offices for the purpose of educating the public about drugs, and showing families, kids and teens that they can have a great life without alcohol or drugs, according to the release.

There will be speakers, live music and entertainment, including composer/singer/ author/filmmaker Michael McLean; The Salt Lake City Mass Choir; and 2002 Olympic Silver medalist on the U.S. bobsled team Bill Schuffenhauer.

4thesolution organizes and funds many other events during the year, including school and youth assemblies, with hopes to, ultimately, bring about a new generation of people who are as much against illegal drug and alcohol use, as people are now against smoking and for wearing seat belts.

Everything at the rally is totally free, including food and drinks, according to the release.

There is also a chance to win a car donated by Automatic Car Credit.
