26th Annual Jail and Bail to Benefit American Cancer Society


Beth-Tobin-Jail

Over a quarter century and almost $5 million raised to benefit the American Cancer Society and cancer research, Hollywood personal injury attorney David Singer has announced the first meeting of the Jail and Bail “Parole Board” later this month.

This year’s Jail and Bail honorary chairperson is former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham.  Committee members include Broward Sheriff Scott Israel and State Attorney Mike Satz. David Singer continues as event chairman.

Following in the footsteps of former Florida Governor and current U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, legendary criminal defense attorney Roy Black, NSU Chancellor Ray Ferrero, retired Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti, State Attorney Michael Satz, radio personality Paul Castronovo, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former Florida Marlins coach Jack McKeon, WPLG newscaster Kristi Krueger, former Miami Dolphins players Bernie Kosar, Jason Taylor and Dwight Stephenson, WQAM personality Joe Rose, Graham continues the tradition of influential leaders that have lent their name and support in the effort to fight cancer.

Jail and Bail has become a fast and prominent fundraiser of the American Cancer Society in Broward County.  Having developed its own unique mechanism for raising money, Singer personally picks the “Parole Board.”  Volunteers are taught how to find “jailbirds” who will make calls from a makeshift jail following their ‘arrest’ by the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Required to ‘post bail’ to secure release, ‘jailbirds’ answer charges ranging from ‘illicit basket-weaving’ to ‘needle dusting.’  Calling friends and family to raise bail, they are released upon reaching their pledge to the American Cancer Society.

“I’m proud of what Jail and Bail has become over the years,” Hollywood personal injury attorney David Singer told South Florida Reporter. “We’ve raised almost $5 million to benefit ACS and cancer research.”

The first meeting of the Jail and Bail “Parole Board” will held at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 20th at the Sheraton Suites Fort Lauderdale at Cypress Creek, 555 NW 62nd Street, Fort Lauderdale, 33309. Plenty of parking is available and a complementary lunch will be served.

Jason Taylor and David Singer kick off Broward Jail and Bail


 

Local law enforcement authorities have begun arresting unsuspecting South Floridians.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to speak to an attorney, and to have an attorney present during any questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be provided for you at government expense.

Having a bad dream?  No you are not “under arrest.” The rights you have just heard are all in fun and part of David Singer’s annual Jail and Bail event to benefit the Broward County chapter of the American Cancer Society.

“Some of South Florida’s most high-profile figures will appear in front of a judge this week and answer charges ranging from ‘illicit basket-weaving’ to ‘needle dusting,’ stated attorney Marc Anidjar of Anidjar & Levine PA, an event sponsor.

Required to “post bail” to secure their release, it’s all to benefit the American Cancer Society and cancer research.

This year’s Jail and Bail honorary chairman is Jason Taylor – former Miami Dolphins linebacker, ESPN NFL analyst, and co-founder of the Jason Taylor Foundation.

Following in the footsteps of legendary criminal defense attorney Roy Black, NSU Chancellor Ray Ferrero, Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti, State Attorney Michael Satz, radio personality Paul Castronovo, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former Florida Marlins coach Jack McKeon, WPLG newscaster Kristi Krueger, former Miami Dolphin Bernie Kosar and WQAM personality Joe Rose, Taylor continues the tradition of influential leaders that have lent their name and support in the effort to fight cancer.

“I’m proud to follow so many great community leaders and lend my name to Jail and Bail,” stated Taylor.  “Giving back. It’s a simple concept, but one not grasped often enough.”

“Arrested at their home or place of business, jailbirds will be housed in cells pending an appearance before the judge,” stated  David Singer a Hollywood personal injury attorney. “Detainees call family and friends in an effort to raise money for their release and in support of the American Cancer Society.”

Having committed himself to the American Cancer Society, Singer has chaired Jail & Bail for over 20 years.

Donors pitch in to “bail out” their family and friends during a 90 minute “detention.” Dozens of local business and community leaders take part in this yearly ritual.

Since the start, Jail and Bail has raised over $2.4 million for the Broward unit of the American Cancer Society. For 2012, Singer has targeted a goal of $200,000.

“The success of Jail and Bail is the result of the tireless work of it’s long serving Chairman,” stated Tiffany DiPanni, Chief Marketing Officer at County Line Chiropractic Medical & Rehab Centers.  “We are proud to support the American Cancer Society through the Broward Jail and Bail.”

This year’s Jail and Bail will be held June 26th – 29th in the lobby of the Airport Sheraton, 1825 Griffin Road, Dania Beach, with more than 150 local politicians and community leaders being “arrested.”

The four-day event concludes on August 9th with an “Up the River Cruise.”

19th Annual Broward County Jail and Bail to Benefit the American Cancer Society

Having a bad dream?  No you are not “under arrest.”  The rights you have just heard are all in fun and part of David Singer’s annual Jail and Bail event to benefit the Broward County chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Some of South Florida’s most high-profile figures will appear in front of a judge this week and answer charges ranging from “illicit basket-weaving” to “needle dusting.” Required to “post bail” to secure their release, it is all to benefit cancer research.

Roy Black, the senior partner of Black, Srebnick, Kornspan & Stumpf, P.A., is one of the nation’s premier trial lawyers and chairman of the 19th Annual Jail and Bail Event.  Following in the footsteps of NSU Chancellor Ray Ferrero, Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti, and State Attorney Michael Satz, Black continues the tradition of influential leaders that have lent their name and support in the effort to fight cancer.

“Arrested at their home or place of business, jailbirds will be housed in cells pending an appearance in front of our judge,” said Hollywood personal injury attorney David Singer, chairman of the four-day event, which runs through Friday.

Detainees call family and friends in an effort to raise money for their release and in support of the American Cancer Society. 

Donors pitch in to “bail out” their family and friends during a 90 minute “detention.  Dozens of local business and community leaders take part in this yearly ritual.

Given the real-life scandals engulfing Broward’s politicians and the powerful elite – along with recent news reports of more arrests and charges in the Scott Rothstein case – the event seems a bit surreal.

“It’s hitting a little too close to home for some,” said Singer. 

The Jail and Bail event started Monday evening in the lobby of the Airport Sheraton, 1825 Griffin Road, Dania Beach, with current and former mayors constructing a jail to detain those “arrested.”  The four-day event concludes Friday and is followed later by an “Up the River Cruise” on August 30th.
