Relay For Life Jail and Bail Fundraiser Set for February 19th, Fairbury NebraskaRelay For Life Jail and Bail Fundraiser Set for February 19th

Is there a warrant out for your arrest?

In this case, it would be a good thing since it is all part of a Jail and Bail fundraiser for the 2016 Relay For Life of Jefferson County. Set for Friday, Feb. 19 at Stagecoach Mall Antiques & Tasting Room at 508 E Street in downtown Fairbury, 20 plus community members will be picked up by local law enforcement volunteers for incarceration until each individual reaches his or her bail amount.

"Our relay team was looking for a fun way to bring in some donations and I thought we might give this a try. I know no one in the community has done anything like this for some time, so it should generate a lot of awareness for the Relay For Life locally," Diane Schutt, team captain and organizer of the event said.

Several local citizens will be "arrested" starting at about 9 a.m. on Feb. 19 by local law enforcement volunteers. Special warrants have been issued and charges listed for each person. The convicts will be transported to Stagecoach Mall to have mug shots taken and posted on Facebook. After that, each prisoner will contact co-workers, friends and family to get pledges to raise the necessary bail money. Prisoners will be treated well during their incarceration with snacks and beverages available. Once the bail total is reached, prisoners are free to leave and resume their normal life, according to Schutt. The Jail and Bail will end around 2 p.m.

Community members can also have a friend or family member arrested that day for a $20 fee. This can be arranged by leaving a message at (402) 300-1211 by Wednesday, Feb. 17. Payments must be made prior to the arrest.

“The whole purpose for the Jail and Bail is to make more people aware of Relay For Life in Jefferson County. It is a great event and part of the American Cancer Society’s awareness campaign against cancer. Cancer strikes so many people and events like this make it possible to keep searching for a cure,” Nels Sorensen, Jr., team captain and organizer said.

Jail and Bail is sponsored by the Caped Cancer Crusaders, a local team.

The 2016 Relay For Life of Jefferson County takes place Friday, June 17 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.
