WEDNESDAY, 04 MAY 2011
All-Connect and Shuttle Express proudly participated in the Canadian Cancer Society’s 2011 Jail-N-Bail Event on Wednesday, April the 13th. Along with help from the Halton Regional Police, offenders were either arrested at their place of employment, or turned themselves in at the Oakville Place Shopping Mall’s Centre Court, where they were brought before a guest Judge to plea their case.
Our very own jailbirds, Kristina and Spencer, turned themselves in. They were charged with scalping Maple Leaf Playoff Tickets. They were fingerprinted, dressed in prison garb and had their mug shots taken.
Charged With Fraud - Scalping Maple Leaf Playoff Tickets
Constables Laurel Barnett and Mike Dinsmore, who ensured there were no bail jumpers, accompanied our convicts to the Judge’s table.
Guest Judge Roger Lapworth (Ward 4 Councilor) informed the defendants that they were charged with “Scalping Maple Leafs Playoff Tickets”.
Kristina and Spencer failed to convince the Judge of their innocence (or wishful thinking the Leafs could still make the playoffs) and their bail was set at $300. From there, they were thrown into their jail cell with nothing but bread, water and a cell phone to raise bail with.
Doing Time For a Good Cause
By the end of the afternoon, our jailbirds were able to make bail by raising $640. A grand total of $11,300 raised by the 9 convicts collectively.
All proceeds from the event goes towards funding Canadian Cancer Research, as well as helping to provide information services and support programs in the community.
In addition to participating in the Jail-N-Bail event, All-Connect & Shuttle Express also made a contribution to the Canadian Cancer Society's 2011 Daffodil Days campaign, which raised a total of $71,000.
