Loyalist PR's "Jail & Bail" Raises $3,500+

Hats off to the amazing team of Seaneen Collins, Stacey Sullivan and Meg Hoyle (left) who raised more than $3,500 in just two hours with yesterday's "Jail & Bail" fundraiser.

More than a dozen people were jailed throughout the day, including Belleville Mayor Neil Ellis, City of Quinte West Mayor John Williams, Orlena Cain of Mix 97, faculty members, business people... and even yours truly!

The group's charity of choice is the Oncology Unit of the Belleville General Hospital.

Fantastic job, everyone!

P.S. Here's an article from The Intelligencer about the event.
