“I never realized how dangerous drugs could be until Sold Out told us about Fentanyl. I now know that drugs can be a dangerous thing and you shouldn’t trust people telling you to take a random drug that they claim is something helpful because it may as well be Fentanyl.”

The Sold Out School Program comes with an inspiring origin and story. In 2012 the DARE Program funding was cut by the federal government. Roman Gabriel was approached by a local Boone NC group of businessmen who were concerned about their children and grandchildren having no drug and alcohol education program. That group of committed men decided to donate the original funding to start the Sold Out Program in three local school districts. Quickly the program won the confidence of superintendents and principals alike, becoming one of the few outside programs allowed on junior high and high school campuses. And the only alcohol and drug abstinence program with immediate student feedback through the Sold Out Student in school QR code online pledge technology. Over 70 % of all middle schools students were participating in the Sold Out Drug and Alcohol Abstinence Pledge. Within three years Sold Out grew to over twenty North Carolina School Districts !

Fast forward to February 2019, when the whole world was turned upside down by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Schools closed down immediately, shutting down the Sold Out in school assembly program.


Sold Out School Districts

The future looked bleak as funding came to a sudden halt, and the foundation depends upon donations, sponsorships, and grants. Through that spring and summer we began to meet with the leadership of school districts we had served for many years. Partnering with those districts, they worked with us to develop an initial distance learning incarnation of the program. Through our webmaster, innovation and creative technology, Sold Out transitioned the in school assembly to an online assembly along with 100% online school follow up student video platform (see three main links at top of page). The new online program was met with enthusiasm from our school partners, and students.

In the fall of 2019 students through our online pledge began to tell us that they were struggling with anxiety and depression from the isolation of distance learning. From those concerns we began to focus our attention on how we could help students deal with the mental and emotional challenges. Born from that came our online Student Health and Wellness Curriculum.

Roman approached many of his professional and sports contacts, putting together a Dream Team of health and wellness professionals developing the current researched written and video courses. Directed to the current drug and alcohol, mental and emotional youth crisis we face today. Sold Out is definitely a Covid-19 success story. The program has now served schools in six (6) states : North Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, California, and Arizona. Including the Official Drug and Alcohol Abstinence Program of the largest youth sports facility in the United States, Legacy Cares located at Legacy Sports USA at Bell Bank Park, in Mesa Arizona.
