Log editor ‘locked up’

Local Destin community leaders, including The Log’s Matt Algarin, will be “arrested” and put behind bars as their friends and business associates will post “bail” to have them released during the Behind Bars for Good for MDA.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 26 at Bonefish Grill, 4447 Commons Drive E. It’s all part of a fun and philanthropic effort to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the people it serves in Destin community.

Each community leader’s bail goal is $3,200.

Lock-Ups help MDA fund research projects worldwide; operate some 200 hospital-affiliated clinics; assist families in locating and repairing critically needed medical equipment; run disease-specific support groups; sponsor annual weeklong summer camp sessions for thousands of youngsters; and advocate for the needs of the families MDA serves.
