MDA coming to lock up local jailbirds for fundraiser
August 17, 2010
The Muscular Dystrophy Association has recruited more than 75 of the area’s “most wanted” business executives and community leaders to participate in its annual Lock-Up, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Aug. 25 at Pogacha Restaurant, 120 N.W. Gilman Blvd.
Participants, or jailbirds, will be arrested by local firefighters and taken to serve their time in a maximum appreciation jail site. Upon arrival, jailbirds will have a mug shot taken and asked to raise their “bail,” set at $2,000, by networking with friends, family and business associates.
MDA hopes to raise $40,000 during the lock-up, and all proceeds from the event will help support MDA services and research programs, including transportation services, support groups and local clinics.
