SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Officers from the Muscular Dystrophy Association took Tribune Editor Annie Flanzraich to jail today at the Riva Grill.

Editor Annie Flanzraich will be one of more than 75 of South Lake Tahoe’s executives who are going behind bars to raise bail for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The South Lake Tahoe Lock-Up will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 17 at the Riva Grill. Volunteers posing as arresting officers will pick up the offenders in vehicles provided by local car dealerships.

These jailbirds will then be taken to Riva Grill where they will have their mug shot taken, and enjoy the Riva Grill’s version of bread and water. Each jailbird will and will make phone calls provided by Crickett to collect bail set at $1,200, which will send two children to the local MDA Summer Camp in South Lake Tahoe.

Flanzraich has raised $90 so far of her $1,200 bail. To help Flanzraich raise more visit

All money raised from the South Lake Tahoe Lock-Up will directly benefit hundreds of local families served by MDA in Northern Nevada and Northeastern California. MDA is a non-profit voluntary health agency dedicated to eradicating the more than 40 neuromuscular diseases in our program of services and improving the quality of life of local individuals and families affected by these diseases. MDA does not seek or receive fees from those they serve, nor do they receive government funds. MDA services are funded almost entirely by private contributors through our year-round events.
