An ongoing fund-raising drive reached a pinnacle of sorts August 20 at the Castlegar Canada Safeway branch.A series of mock “incarcerations” were held involving members of the Castlegar Fire Department. It was all in aid of the annual drive to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy-related causes.

“We raised $165 from the Ice Cream Float sales as well as $345 donated at check stands to bring our total to $4,814 with two weeks left in the campaign,” said Safeway’s Castlegar store manager Brian Bogle. All monies raised go to Muscular Dystrophy Association Mobility Grants.
