Night in jail at kids’ fund-raiser

Two September fund-raising events to benefit at-risk children at the South Tahoe Lake Tahoe Juvenile Treatment Center includes a night in a cell and a gourmet dinner with live entertainment.

On Sept. 10, people who raise $500 in pledges will be allowed to stay in a double cell while those who raise more than $1,000 in pledges will be awarded private accommodations.

Events planned for that day include a scavenger hunt, croquet, basketball, music and a mock criminal court to determine sentencing. Inmates will receive a rap sheet and have the chance to defend themselves before a judge.

County Supervisor Dave Solaro sent letters to Police Chief Don Muren and South Lake Tahoe Mayor Tom Davis challenging them to get more pledges than him in a friendly competition.
