There is a warrant out for the arrest of several leaders in the Loganville-Grayson area and the Muscular Dystrophy Association is hoping their freedom is important to the community.
“More than 80 business and civic leaders from throughout the Loganville, Snellville and Grayson areas, as well as local goodwill ambassadors for the MDA will be “jailbirds” and “locked-up” for having a big heart,” Leslie Cash, fundraising coordinator for the MDA said in a press release. “Local community leaders will be “arrested” and put behind bars as their friends and business associates will post “bail” to get them released. It’s all part of a fun and philanthropic effort to raise money for the MDA and the people it serves in greater Loganville, Snellville and Grayson areas.”
These “jailbirds” will be incarcerated from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 18 at the Summit Chase Country Club at 3197 Classic Dr. in Snellville. Cash said about 180 individuals in Gwinnett County, and more than a million nationwide, are living with progressive muscle diseases. The MDA Lock-Up helps raise funds for research projects worldwide as well as the operation of about 200 hospital-affiliated clinics. In the local area that includes one at Emory Hospital and one at Scottish Rite Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The funds raised also help assist families locate and repair critically needed medical equipment, run disease-specific support groups, sponsor annual weeklong summer camp sessions for children with the disease – such as Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge – and advocate for the needs of the families that MDA serves.
