Oak Bay celebrities donned prison garb Satuyrday for the Oak Bay High Jail or Bail event at Hillside Mall.

The event was a fundraiser for the school’s Hero Holiday student group, which is travelling to Mexico to help build two homes for families there.

About $8,200 of the group’s $12,000 goal was raised through the bailouts.
