NILES -- Prominent area residents will be locked up to "Serve Time for a Good Cause" on Thursday in an effort to raise funds for the West Michigan Chapter of The Muscular Dystrophy Association.
This one-day event involves local community leaders spending an hour of their time "in jail" at Niles Eagles Lodge soliciting their friends and business associates for donations to raise their "bail money."
Because of the number of people who have already committed to participate in this event, you may very well know someone who will be a jailbird. If you know anyone you would like to see "locked up," please give our "Parole Officer" Kerri a call at (616) 459-0520 and you will be put into the "Witness Protection Program."
All funds raised through this event will stay in the West Michigan area to support MDA funded programs such as summer camp for children with Muscular Dystrophy, free clinics in West Michigan, and groundbreaking research at the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Wayne State University.
Any questions may be directed to Erinn Earl at (616) 459-4331. People wishing to donate to MDA may stop by the Niles Eagles Lodge between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on May 8.
