Business leaders and community members in the St. Charles area have been recruited to take part in the MDA Executive Lock Up at the Ameristar Casino on Thursday, August 23rd. Executives aka "jailbirds" have been set with a bail and asked to reach out to their personal and professional contacts for donations to get them out of jail. The funds raised will stay local to St. Charles County to benefit the kids and adults living with a form of neuromuscular disease.
