MDA to Put Fort Lauderdale Community Leaders Behind Bars for Good
Date:5/20/2013

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 20, 2013

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is putting Fort Lauderdale business and community leaders behind bars for good at an Executive Lock-Up at Chima Brazilian Steakhouse on Wednesday, May 22 beginning at 9 a.m.

More than 100 “jailbirds” are expected to participate in the annual Executive Lock-Up to benefit individuals and families affected by muscle disease. Representatives from various industries will be present, including city officials, local celebrities, realtors, doctors, attorneys, bankers, and members of the auto and leisure businesses.

“MDA Lock-Ups are one of my favorite programs,” said Joanne Bowsman, executive director of the MDA chapter in South Florida. “It’s a great opportunity for community leaders to show their support for all the children and adults in the area that MDA serves. The best part is that they get to take an hour of their day to come out and have fun with other local business leaders, all for a great cause.”

During the event, jailbirds will have the opportunity to raise donations for bail while dining at the Chima Brazilian Steakhouse. The Lock-Up also gives participants the chance to interact with MDA families who will benefit directly from the fundraising efforts.

Jailbirds will raise bail through donations from friends, family and business associates. Bail is set at $3,500 — the cost to send four children to MDA summer camp for one week.

With the incredible support of the Chima Brazilian Steakhouse, the event goal has been set at $80,000. The money raised at the Fort Lauderdale Executive Lock-Up will help fund research and provide services to local MDA families living in Broward and Dade counties.
