The year 2017 marks the 61st anniversary of Jail & Bail. This fundraising event originated in St. Clair County back in 1956, and was the “brain child” of DJ Lee Van Dam, formerly of WTTH radio, now known as WPHM radio. We are proud to say that, with our continued strong community support that we remain the number one Jail & Bail event in the nation. Our event is a 7 hour live TV and radio broadcast. This year we will stream the entire event live on EBW.TV.
Approximately 250 volunteers, including corporate and civic leaders as well as members from the general public, are recruited to serve as "prisoners" and “teams” who procure pledges to get them out of jail. Each prisoner will have the fun opportunity of being "arraigned" in front of our volunteer judge. Prisoners also have fun going on “jail breaks” throughout the day and visiting local establishments.
To give every baby
a healthy start in life.
