Prince Rupert Cop for Cancer ready to arrest for Jail and Bail fundraiser

On August 25 between 10 a.m. and five p.m., the Cops for Cancer will be holding a “jail and bail” fundraiser in Prince Rupert's Cow Bay.

On Saturday August 25th, 2012, between 10 a.m. and five p.m., the Cops for Cancer “Tour de North” will be holding a “jail and bail” fundraiser in Prince Rupert’s Cow Bay.

For this event, local business owners, community “celebrities” and community members will be “arrested” for various offences and transported to a “jail” located in Cow Bay near the Atlin Terminal. Once there, the “prisoner” will have to make “bail” by contacting family, friends and co-workers to raise enough donations to gain their release. Each “prisoner” will have a pre-determined “bail” set but are encouraged to raise more money if possible.

Businesses in Prince Rupert have shown their support of this fundraiser through their generous donation of goods and services. The business owners in Cow Bay have donated various goods and services which will be raffled off on the day of the event. Home Hardware, Rona, General Paints and Jim West Signs have donated materials to construct the jail and Safeway and Overwaitea have donated food and beverages which will be available for purchase.

The Prince Rupert riders, Bob Killbery and Jennifer Collins would like to thank all of the business supporting this project. All monies raised goes to the Canadian Cancer Society, funding not only pediatric cancer treatment and research but also facilities like Camp Goodtimes.

Anyone interested in nominating a person for “arrest” or volunteering at the event please contact Constable Jennifer Collins at 250-627-0700 or cellular 250-600-1377. Nominations will close on August 22, 2012.
