Lock-Up to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association

This is the 22nd year for the local event in which volunteers were arrested and spent at least an hour in jail trying to raise $500 in bail money by calling family and friends.

The Greater Ozarks Area Chapter of MDA benefits more than 750 families in the Ozarks affected by neuromuscular diseases. Parts of the Jail and Bail were taped for broadcast on the local cutaway segments of the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon.

Blue Planet is very proud of Andy's participation in the MDA Lockup as he along with all the other "jailbirds" raised a whopping $68,607 this year!
