2011 Jail N Bail update

(Editor's note: This article was written by Michelle Miles, chairperson of Jail N Bail.)

What a phenomenal success Jail N Bail was this year!!  We raised over $14,700!!  DBSC couldn't have done it without all the hard work of our prisoners and volunteers.

Jason Smith and Karen Carlson are the two top prisoners this year in terms of how much bail they each raised!!  Their begging....I mean requests of donation to go towards their bail brought them over the top!!

loudest prisoners being released with her lawyer,

We held the event in a new location this year, St.  Patrick's church, a very DB friendly facility, and it worked out great!!  Each year this event keeps getting bigger! This year we even had virtual prisoners, Allison Holder joined us via Skype in Arizona and Sandra Blevins worked hard on her bail from Sweden! They are only a couple of virtual prisoners we had many more!! Char Whitacre decided she would fly up from California to turn herself in! What a trooper!!!

And DBSC Policewoman. Roy being released from the jail!

Thank you again to each and every person that helped out behind the scenes, the day of the event and stuck around to help us clean up! This is truly a DB community fundraiser since it takes the entire community to make it a success!!
