Let's work together to change the drinking culture

On January 26, 2010, our beloved daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, niece, granddaughter Kristine Polastre passed away due to acute alcohol poisoning. It was a sudden and devastating loss for us. When we would tell people how Kristine died, we would usually get a puzzled look, and a response that they never really thought you could die from alcohol, other than drunk driving.

We knew that we had to tell her story, so that we could educate the youth and adolescent around the world about how binge drinking can result in alcohol poisoning, and that you can still be “cool” by drinking responsibly. Our hopes is that we can help save lives, so that another family never has to experience the loss that we are constantly feeling.
