Anstey Hodge Leader Gets “Bailed Out of Jail”

John Anstey was recently released from jail as he was able to raise enough bail as a “jailbird” for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Lock-up in Salem.

John was arrested and charged with “having a big heart.” During the event, he raised more than $1,900 for the MDA.  He was recognized for exceeding the $1,000 milestone.


“I made my bail and even had our name put on the Jumbotron for being one of the top fundraisers.  Our clients, vendors, and all of you [staff] made this possible,” John said.


As part of the Lock-up event, business leaders join forces with MDA by agreeing to be “locked up” while they raise money for their “bail,” which helps kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that take away physical strength and mobility.
