Smoke-free fest to feature MTV celebrity

MTV's Yes Duffy will appear at two local high schools tomorrow and at the University of Toledo Sunday as part of standfest 2003, a tobacco-free event touring Ohio.

Duffy will speak at Sylvania's Northview High School about 10:45 a.m. and the Performing Arts School of Metropolitan Toledo at 12:45 p.m. He will return to Toledo Sunday for standfest, which runs from 1 to 5 p.m. in UT's Health Education Center. Free parking will be available in parking lots 6N and 10, across the stadium, according to the Ohio Tobacco Use Prevention and Control Foundation.

The free event offers local youths, ages 11-17, a chance to gather and have fun in a smoke-free environment. Activities will include a lip-synching contest, TV commercial auditions, games - and the chance to chat with Duffy.
