On October 10th, 2015 Keri Anne DeMott was killed by a multiple DUI offender while driving home. She was only 20 years old. She was studying Sociology at the University of Central Florida in the hopes of becoming a social worker and helping children and families in need. The Keri Anne DeMott Foundation was started by the DeMott family to honor Keri's memory and to share her story, with the goal to one day end drunk, impaired, and distracted driving. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the foundation will continue Keri's passion of helping others by giving back to local community groups and national organizations that inspire, motivate, and help others.

The foundation’s goal is to spread a message of education and awareness about the decisions we all make and how they affect others. By sharing Keri’s story with middle school, high school, and college students as well as community groups and local law enforcement agencies, we hope to create a positive change in the world and give back to the community in the same ways Keri had imagined doing herself.
On November 8th, Bill and Lacey attended the 2018 Central Florida Humanitarian Awards, where the foundation was recognized for its work in Central Florida to end drunk, impaired, and distracted driving. To be honored among so many other incredible individuals and organizations is truly humbling for us as an foundation and as a family. Being a humanitarian is not about accolades - it's about wanting the best for your communities and the people that live in it. We are very grateful for the opportunities we have been given, and we will continue to use our platform to raise awareness and make our streets safer. Thank you to Space Coast Daily for hosting an incredible evening! Click here to learn more about the Humanitarian Awards, as well as all of the nominees.
