Host Brittany Flowers was on the scene at the Westin Fort Lauderdale as the “criminals” were arraigned for their dubious acts! Hollywood attorney David W. Singer “The Judge”, was on the bench for Jail and Bail 2016. This is Singer’s 25th year with the Jail and Bail fundraiser that brings out the tremendous generosity in everyone. In his quarter-century of fundraising for the American Cancer Society (ACS), Singer has raised nearly $5 million.
The event employs an innovative technique for raising money with fake arrests, real police and mock court trials overseen by “Judge” Singer himself. As in years past, Singer has selected people to form his “parole board who are taught how to find “jailbirds” (or people whom they want to have arrested). Volunteers on the “parole board” may have their worst enemy or best friend arrested and thrown in jail for this good cause. After being thrown in “jail”, the jailbirds make pledge calls to get ACS donations, aka bail money. If they can raise enough money through pledging, they get out of jail.
All proceeds raised benefit the ACS. The event was held June 28-July 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
