The Women’s Resource Center is holding a Jail N Bail fund raising event during the Trade and Leisure Show April 23rd to 25th. The Center’s Colleen Arnold explains the event begins when participants contact the Women’s Resource Center with a request to turn themselves in or have their boss, spouse, a politician, friend or co-worker arrested. She says the mock police officer and volunteer arrest the jailbird who is then wisked off to jail and the jailbirds must agree to the arrest. She adds when the participants arrive at the jail their bail is set by a mock judge and they then start making pledge calls to friends, relatives and co-workers to earn their bail so they should bring their smart phone or a list of contacts with them to the jail.
Arrest forms are now available for advance bail raising and can be emailed or faxed out or you can pick them up at the Women’s Resource Center. All bail donations of
20 dollars or more will receive a tax receipt with all proceeds going to the operation of the Safe haven which is an emergency shelter for abused women and their children.
