Delta County's Lock-Up was a fund raising event to benefit the Western Slope Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
A supportive group of 54 "jail bird" participants had been raising "bail" money for several weeks.
Sentences were served on Feb. 15 at Daveto's Restaurant in Delta. The restaurant's version of bread and water featured a lunch of salad, pizza, peach cobbler and a choice of beverages.
Individuals dressed in black and white stripes for a "mug shot" while behind bars. Over $20,000 bail was paid and everyone was released for good behavior.
Organizer of the event, Kendall Montagriff, said, "It was an amazing turnout and we really appreciate all of Delta County's support. Seventy-seven percent of the money raised helps the more than 200 families on the Western Slope affected by muscular dystrophy. We would like to thank Daveto's for donating the space and wonderful food."
