K-State Student United Way Campaign: Jail and Bail
All are welcome to participate in the Jail and Bail event taking place for the student campaign to raise funds for the United Way. For varying fees, you can issue a warrant to arrest a student, faculty member or “celebrity” by Tuesday, Nov. 15. The charged individual can post bail before being incarcerated at the K-State Student Union Wednesday, Nov. 16, or they can use their time in jail to call family and friends to post bail. Get all the details for this creative way to raise money at http://conta.cc/rAJwIa.
