Bay Co. Business Leaders Post 'Bail' for MDA Lock-Up Fundraiser

On Thursday Bay County business leaders were cuffed and escorted away by law enforcement, but it's all for a good cause. 

They did a little time for a community fundraiser. It's to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Bay County Sheriff's deputies rounded up some of the participants and dropped them off at the Carrabbas restaurant on the beach for lunch.

Participants went behind bars and posted bail, the bail representing the money they helped raise. News 13's Jerry Tabatt, also participated serving as the judge this year.

Organizers say it's an event to bring the community together.

"It's a great community event. It gives you know our community a chance to network, and see their cohorts and you know a great way to have fun while their raising money for MDA," said MDA Senior Fundraising Coordinator Crystal Ralys.

People can still donate to the cause for the next two weeks.
