Jail & Bail 2013

SSD and OSLA, in conjunction with several student groups, are proud to announce the 2nd annual Jail & Bail event to benefit Special Olympics on March 15th. The event raises money by selling “warrants” in advance of the event and placing “arrestees” in a makeshift jail in the Student Center. Arrestees then have to raise money from family, friends and classmates in order to be set free. Last year they were able to raise nearly $7,000 and fund 35 athletes for the entire year. So, if your student calls you on March 15th and tell you they are “in jail” and need bail money, don’t panic. Help us raise money for this terrific cause, and allow us to reach our goal of $10,000 for Special Olympics.
