Have you ever wanted the chance to bail your Dean out of jail? The March of Dimes event “Jail and Bail” is a great opportunity to spring the powers that be from the pokey and raise money for a good cause.


This friendly fundraising competition between departments will provide much needed funds to the March of Dimes, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the health of mothers and babies.


Each department has a donation jar to collect money and they have until March 27 to raise at least $100.


The “prisoners” this year are Dr. Bret Wood, Dr. Wayne Jones, Mr. Chris Meyer and Ms. Lori Morrow. They will report to the Wellness Center gym floor on the last day of the competition. If their department has not raised enough funds, they must serve their prison sentence, 15 minutes in “jail”.



This year the campaign hopes to add some more fun to the FUNdraiser by having orange jumpsuits on hand for any “prisoners” that are unable to post bail.


All proceeds from this event go directly to the March of Dimes, where 77 cents of every dollar raised is used to support research and programs that combat birth defects and infant mortality.
