Sent to jail for a good cause?


Lock up on the Hudson for Muscular Dystrophy

Hoboken may have had it’s recent share of jail news, but the Muscular Dystrophy Association is looking to break that negative trend, and introduces a fun “jail-themed” fundraiser to help raise money to fight the horrible disease.

They’re currently looking for local business owners from Jersey City, Hoboken and Weehawken to participate. Find out what this entails and how to volunteer below.

MDA wants local business to go to `jail` for a good cause!

“Local business leaders will be heading to “jail” on Tuesday, September 21st, from 11am until 2pm at the 10th & Willow Bar & Grill restaurant in Hoboken, NJ in order to raise their “bail” for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

MDA is looking for community business leaders to be “arrested” at their place of business and transported to the 10th & Willow Bar & Grill, located at 935 Willow Avenue, Hoboken, NJ to serve their time at the local MDA Lock-Up. Each Jail Bird will raise $1,600 in the weeks leading up to the event and then will visit the “Jail house” at 10th and Willow to turn in their bail, enjoy our version of “gourmet bread and water” otherwise known as lunch and have the opportunity to network with colleagues and friends.

MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education. The majority of contributions to MDA come from individual donors.

To register as a jail bird or for more information on this event, please contact: Vanessa Engelke at 201-843-4452 at MDA.”
