Local restaurant Rib City (710 Grand Ave.) has agreed to serve as the host site for the upcoming Jail & Bail event, the March of Dimes said today. Rib City will donate space, food and beverages for approximately 25 “jailbirds,” as the event’s participants are humorously known. Jail & Bail is a community networking style event with a tongue-in-cheek theme that raises funds for March of Dimes programs to help improve maternal and infant health. Before Jail & Bail, jailbirds set their personal fundraising goal and then work to achieve it by collecting donations from family, friends and associates. At the event, jailbirds appear before the “judge,” “plead their case” (by turning in their donations) and get a souvenir picture of themselves in jailbird garb. They enjoy a free meal donated by the host site and the opportunity to win prizes, connect with other jailbirds and have a bit of fun. Anyone interested in being a jailbird or contributing to the event in other ways is encouraged to contact the March of Dimes at 970-243-0894. Jail & Bail will take place in Glenwood Springs on Thursday, Nov. 10, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. In the role of judge (and the robes that go along with it), will be a well-known local face: that of Glenwood Springs mayor, Matthew Steckler.
