Show Notes

A catastrophic drinking and driving death - Steven Benvenisti shares a true story that you won't forget. Check out the video interview on YouTube after this episode here.

Imagine the worst event that could ever happen to you; something so horrific that death is a welcome alternative. That's exactly what happened to Ben, an all-American college student, athlete, future homecoming king, president of the honors society, fraternity brother, all while having a great relationship with his girlfriend and family. Life could not have been better.

Unfortunately, it all came to a screeching halt during his college spring break in Daytona Beach, when a drunk driver crashed into him while he was walking. As an attorney, Ben's case touched me like no other. It was so gruesome, so unthinkably devastating, that to this day I still get chills just thinking about it. Yet, all who followed this case have agreed that this story has inspired and changed them forever.

And so I made a promise that if I won, I would share the story of this powerful and inspiring case with the public in the hopes of ending drunk driving and D.U.I. Spring Break is a true story of inner strength and courage, which also provides a secret so precious that it not only saves lives, it guarantees success no matter what the challenge is.
