On July 18, 2005, Amber Pizzo was walking home after watching a fireworks display from a friend’s house when she was struck and fatally injured by a car driven by a drunk driver. She was a week shy of her 27th birthday. She was a teacher. She was a friend. She was a daughter.

Through the loss, her family created the Amber Pizzo Memorial Foundation (リンク) to advocate for the educational needs of youth who will be leaders of tomorrow. さらに, the foundation supports programs that promote responsible driving habits while teaching the deadly consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol and other mind-altering drugs. そのためには, the foundation along with Prevention Links (リンク) have sponsored the fourth annualUnion County High School TV Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest”.
