Raleigh, NC, June 04, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Dean Ogan, owner of Rocky Top Hospitality, has announced that The Mash House Restaurant & Brewery will host the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association Lock-Up event on Thursday, June 10 starting at 9 a.m. The Mash House will be closed until 4 p.m. and will donate use of the facility to the local charity and provide food for all participants. This is the second year The Mash House has hosted this event. Last year there were 187 people in attendance and the event raised a total of $90,000. This nationwide event consists of local business and community leaders who agree to be "arrested" to raise money for the MDA organization Jerry's Kids.
“It was very exciting for the Mash House to serve as the jail for this important event,” said Ogan. “It was a wonderful opportunity to get the community involved in fundraising for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.”
- Anyone willing to donate to this worthy cause can contact the Raleigh MDA Association at (919) 783-0222.
- The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health agency, and a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million Americans.
