Jail or Bail Fundraiser
2017 Event Update: Our Annual Jail or Bail Event on March 25th was a big success! Our volunteer "inmates" raised a total of $10,416 prior to and at the event. There are still volunteers who need to be bailed out and we are still accepting donations, so please consider making a contribution today! Thanks to the generosity off all the donors, we are excited about the progress we can make in continuing to bring the best possible programs and facilities to the youth of South Jersey. We have already set the date for the 2018 event - Please join us as a volunteer inmate, sponsor and/or donor on February 24, 2018 at McCullough's Emerald Links Pub & Restaraunt in EHT!

About EHT PAL and the goal of our Jail or Bail Fundraiser: The Egg Harbor Township Police Athletic League (EHT PAL) has been connecting kids with positive role models through a variety of sports, arts, leadership and mentoring programs since its founding in 1989. The relationships created between children, police and PAL mentors have helped countless children in our community thrive- becoming mature, responsible and productive adults.
The programs and activities at PAL are made possible with contributions and grants from generous individuals, foundations, corporations, civic groups and government sources. All children are welcome and given equal opportunity to participate, with scholarships available to financially “at-risk” children.
We are pleased to announce EHT PAL’s annual Jail or Bail event on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 4-8pm at McCullough's Pub and Restaurant in Egg Harbor Township. The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the development of Buddy's Adventure Zone: a 24,000 square foot indoor turf field, and 14,400 square foot technology exploration center at our existing 35-acre Ready to Ride off-road vehicle park. We would be honored to include you in our efforts to support our organization’s programs which have and continue to serve thousands of children in our area!
Participate as an “Inmate” volunteer to be “locked up” by one of our “law enforcement” representatives. Commit to raising your “bail” (a pre-determined amount set by you), by calling friends, family, coworkers, etc. and requesting monetary pledges/donations to be made toward your goal. You may post "bail"' at any time prior to our event. However, if you have not yet achieved your goal you may "Self-Surrender" or be "arrested" on February 24th and be transported to our "Big House" McCullough's Emerald Links in Egg Harbor Township. You may continue to make calls or request further donations from those in attendance at the event in an effort to be released.
Be A Sponsor Several categories of sponsorship are available for individuals or businesses. In addition to contributing to a great cause, Sponsors may benefit from having their participation announced and logo posted on the EHT PAL website and Facebook event page, on event t-shirts and signs, and mentions in media and press releases.
