2016 MN Alexandria Jail & Bail

October 5th, 2016, 11am to 2pm

One of the March of Dimes favorite events, Jail & Bail brings together community leaders and ordinary citizens for a common cause...fighting birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Since its inception in 1957, more than 5 million citizens have volunteered their time in the name of fun - and a good cause.

At the Alexandria Jail & Bail, volunteer jailbirds serve time in a mock jail at Pizza Ranch. Prisoners are arraigned before a volunteer judge on trumped-up, outlandish charges, such as 'reckless gift-giving.' They are then sentenced to spend their time in the slammer to raise bail in the form of donations to the March of Dimes.

Prisoners can start raising funds even before being arrested. Once you complete a few simple steps, you'll be ready to raise money online, offline or both! If you fundraise online, it's as simple as sending out an e-mail!

While March of Dimes Jail & Bail is entertaining and enjoyable, remember that the money you and your friends raise goes toward a very important cause... saving babies! We’ll see you at the Alexandria Jail and Bail on October 5th.
