Metro Bar gig for drunk driving
To strengthen the campaign against drunk driving, a recent gig was showcased at Metro Bar, West Ave., Q.C. in the direction by Anthony V. Gedang with his son Aaron seeing through much of the event to measure up to the desired objectives.
Drunk driving is one of the major causes of road accidents and it is a criminal offense punishable by law, the full implementation of which however is perceived difficult even by the enforcement agencies themselves.
Statistics show that driving home from parties under the influence of alcohol continues unabated. What better way to introduce a chewable tablet to hasten the ill-effects of alcohol than in the mentioned gig with the country’s top bands helping promote it.
According to Gedang, the tablet labeled Hang Out now in the market is an all-organic food supplement and health-enhancing. It freshens the breath and gives fast relief from the onset of incapacitating hang-over, while reducing one’s alcohol level by up to 70% in 40 minutes.
It flushes uwanted toxins fast, thus clearing both mind and body and naturally helps one drive home safely back to his or her family from a bout of all- night socializing and heavy drinking.
Anthony Gidang who is a serious multi-media artist and renaissance man as well is the president and CEO of Biowish Technologies, one of his transnational multi-business establishments which is most environment friendly.
One of his business concerns is aimed at making industry stakeholders conscious of their corporate social responsibility in abating the harsh impact of environmental degradation brought about by industry practices that eschew ethics on the country’s impact assessment measures.
If you ask me Anthony Gedang is one personification of a businessman and a friend high on social conscience score.
