Community Leaders Head to "Jail" Wednesday


On Wednesday, December 14, 2011 the Country Club of Orange Park and the Muscular Dystrophy Association will hold its Clay County "Executive" Lock-up, between the hours of 9am and 3pm.

Community leaders, business owners and executives will be escorted to the Country Club of Orange Park, where they will have their mugshots taken and will be "thrown in jail." The volunteer "Jailbirds" will call their friends, family and associates to raise their "bail money" that will benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The event is part of MDA’s yearlong fundraising efforts that culminates with the nationally televised MDA Labor Day Telethon. The Muscular Dystrophy Association provides assistance with the purchase and repair of wheelchairs and leg braces, provides MDA clinic at no charge, support groups, a week-long summer camp for the children ages 7-18, and gives hope for tomorrow through MDA funded research.
