Fraternity Jail-N-Bail Helps Raise Money for Special Olympics

WILMINGTON -- UNCW students and faculty found a new kind of bond Monday -- bonding each other out of jail.

Kappa Sigma fraternity's annual Jail-N-Bail raised money for the New Hanover County Special Olympics.

Campus VIP's, such as the dean of Watson School, the Chancellor, and even Miss Maryland were put behind bars until they could raise their minimum bond of 100 dollars.

"The Special Olympics does not get a lot of attention," Joshua Kenned, president of Kappa Sigma, said. "I kind of want to give it as much as possible to raise money and awareness. This is actually a pretty big event for us."

The fraternity men aimed at raising $1,000, but they ended up with more than $3,000 by the end of the day.
