Jail and bail May 2



Oak Bay High students put some of the community’s finest behind bars for a day to raise funds to build two homes for families in Vicente Guerrero, Mexico when a group of 34 students travel to the area next spring. Saturday’s Jail and Bail event at the Bay Centre raised $23,000.

“The day surpassed even our greatest expectations,” said Oak Bay High teacher Brent Garraway, adding the staff and students are extremely grateful from the support they received from inmates and donors.
