A talented musician known as the artist “LOVR,” Noah Benardout was tragically killed on August 1, 2019 by a drunk driver while innocently waiting to cross a West Hollywood street. On the day he died, Noah was offered a record deal, and was about to release his new EP. To honor his memory, the Benardout family established the Noah Benardout Foundation, a 501c3 organization that advocates the end of DUI fatalities through music and education.By creating grass roots awareness through music combined with ongoing targeted messaging and an educational platform aimed at young drivers, the foundation is dedicated to bringing an end to driving under the influence (DUI) — an epidemic that is 100% preventable.

Drunk driving claims more lives than cancer or heart related illnesses. With a fatality occurring every 43 minutes, Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is the leading cause of death in the United States. In Los Angeles alone, there were nearly 250 DUI related deaths last year, the majority of whom were pedestrians. Reprehensibly, Los Angeles has the highest rate of pedestrian deaths among the 10 largest U.S. cities, with 50% of those fatalities occurring as a direct result of DUI.
