According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 3.2 million children are bullied each year. 25% of teenagers report that they've experienced repeated cyber-bullying, and 52% of young people report being cyber-bullied. Sadly, youth who report both bullying others and being victims themselves have the highest risk for suicide-related behavior than any groups reporting involvement in bullying.
Join Jen Royle (AKA the #SliderQueen) and her team of #SliderGirls (Danielle Murr of WAAF, Magazine Writer Cheryl Fenton, Kennedy Elsey of Mix 104.1's Karson and Kennedy fame, actress Erica McDermott of "The Fighter" and "Manchester by the Sea," News Anchor Janet Wu, and Magic 106.7's Kendra Petrone) ... as they serve sliders and raise money for Cyberbullying Prevention.
Help us take a bite (and sip) out of cyber-bullying with the generosity of Towne Stove and Spirits' CLASSIC BURGER SLIDERS, BUFFALO CHICKEN SLIDERS AND MEATBALL SLIDERS.
BUT WHY A SLIDER PARTY?
Because kids aren't the only ones who can be cyber-bullied. After having her Twitter, Instagram and Facebook flooded with negative comments using the hashtag #SliderQueen and her Wikipedia page altered with fake news, sports reporter-turned-chef Jen Royle got together with her friends to turn a negative into a positive - a Slider Party to benefit cyber-bullying prevention.
