The United Way of Crookston is very close to the annual campaign fundraising goal and are determined to once again succeed. One of the most events the United Way runs is their annual Jail and Bail promotion where local "celebrities" are chosen as jailees. 

They are tasked with raising bail money by March 27th or they will be put in the United Way Jail until their bail is raised.

The jail will be at Hugo's on March 27th from 11:30 to 6:00. All money raised helps 23 agencies and high impact programs in the Crookston area.

This fundraiser runs from March 1st to March 27th.
