'Sober Saturday Nights' Help Teens Avoid Traps

Teens in the Madison area gathered in Middleton on Saturday night to try to fight peer pressure.

About 100 teens attended Keva Sports Center's Sober Saturday Nights, an alcohol-free way for teenagers to spend time with their friends without the temptations of drugs and alcohol.

Sober Saturday Nights were the brainchild of a young woman who had a friend die of an overdose.

Now that woman's brother is carrying on the tradition.

"I wanted to keep it going because I wanted to follow in my sister's footsteps," said Evan Stone. "Be, I guess, just like her. My whole soccer team is here and it's just something for us to do."

Stone said that even though there is not as much peer pressure as hype would suggest, Sober Saturdays do help some avoid falling into easy traps.

Organizers said they hope that for future events they can attract celebrities.
