Information submitted by Livermore Pleasanton Fire Chief Jim Miguel for Agape Village—

There is going to be a round-up of some of the valley’s most wanted on Friday, April 11 in downtown Pleasanton.

More than 25 “jailbirds” will be locked up in the first annual Agape Village Tri-Valley Advisory Council “Jail n Bail” fundraiser at the Comerica Bank, 600 Main Street, Pleasanton.  

Wearing black and white striped jail attire, “jailbirds” will be busy calling friends, family and business associates, asking for support to raise “bail” money to get them released from custody between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Those funds will benefit foster care operations serving needy youth of our area. Agape Villages is a 55 year old nonprofit, licensed by the State that provides quality homes, innovative solutions and the highest of professional services to disadvantaged children and their families in 15 Northern California counties, with headquarters in San Ramon.  

These volunteer “jailbirds” are among the hundreds that have been subpoenaed to appear in court on Friday. It is rumored that those not appearing have submitted “bribes” to cover their bail and support foster families.  Four judges are set to interrogate the “jailbirds” and set appropriate “bail” before putting them in “jail” where they attempt to raise the needed funds for their release. Noted participants as judges and jailbirds are Fire Chief Jim Miguel, Judge Ron Hyde, Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce Board Chair David Stark, Comerica Branch Manager Douglas Crane and Agape Villages Board Chair Hank Lawson.  

Anyone wishing to participate may “turn themselves in” at Comerica Bank between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to be a “jailbird” or they may offer a “bribe” donation by mailing their checks to Agape Villages, 3160 Crow Canyon Place, Suite 120, San Ramon, CA 94583 or by credit card at www.agapevillages.org.
