Wendy Redlin Gets Locked Up for MDA
July 28, 2010
Alan Bishop, a reserve office for the Fairhope police, is pictured arresting Wendy Redlin at the John McClure Snook Center in Daphne. Redlin, who is raising funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), is participating in the MDA’s lockup event.
Some people will go to great lengths to raise money for their favorite cause as Wendy Redlin proved when she was arrested this week for charity. Redlin became partners in crime with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) when she joined an elite group of MDA’s most wanted jailbirds. Redlin set a goal to raise $2,600 for MDA to keep her from jail time in MDA’s Lock Up event.
Redlin did various fundraising events to secure her bond. One event disguised as a family picnic, invited guests to enjoy her homemade cuisine. Little did the attendees know that they would have to donate funds to secure plates, napkins and silverware to eat their mouthwatering meals. Redlin also raised funds online and has been an avid supporter of MDA since the early 80s. When asked what inspired her passionate support, Redlin shared that her sister-in-law Carla has MD and is mentally challenged but greatly looks forward all year to attending the MDA camp. “The camp is all that she talked about this summer,” explained Redlin.
If Redlin meets her goal, she will be able to send 3 attendees to camp. Redlin’s combined compassionate and serving nature makes her a great fundraiser as well as a great administrative assistant at the John McClure Snook Memory Care Community in Daphne. Redlin has been serving at the Snook Center since 2006 and has enjoyed patient care and getting to know the families of her residents.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. Each year, MDA Lock-Up raises millions of dollars for Jerry's kids.
