Jail for a good cause raises $$$

As reported last week, on Friday, June 1, community members were ‘locked up’ as a fundraiser in support of the Friends for Learning Fundraising Society. Following up, we’ve learned the event raised something over $20,000 for the society, as friends and supporters rallied to bail the jailed folks out.

The three jailbirds who raised the most money were Russ Martin with $1,655, Brian Hay with $1,370 and Bobbie Hartman with $1,025.

Friends for Learning has been supporting Slave Lake’s three public schools for many years, providing money for extra programs and various enhancements to the regular programs.
