Hagerstown businessman Jonathan Burrs kicked off the Skate Don't Smoke program Feb. 7 at Turner's Skate Palace on Virginia Avenue in Hagerstown.
The free, late-night skate is a program funded by the Washington County Health Department's Cigarette Restitution Fund program.
Burrs asked the county to fund the program to give young people and their families an alternative activity that would be free from exposure to second-hand smoke.
The event was opened by guest speaker Andy Smith, who also provided tobacco health education exhibits and held several tobacco education sessions that went on during the two-hour event.
More than 150 young people and their families enjoyed the event, some participating in the "Win Mr. Andy's Money" contest.
Participants were awarded cash prizes and shopping gift cards (prizes were provided by Smith and Brothers United Who Dare To Care) for correctly identifying a number of poisonous ingredients added to cigarette tobacco.
