Lock Up a Local Celebrity and Fight Hunger in Idaho

I think this sounds like an excellent event supporting two charities that need it – The Idaho Foodbank and a scholarship fund for Idaho Schools Field Trips.  This post comes directly off of the history.idaho.gov website.  Check it out:

 Escaping Hunger Event

As part of MAKE HUNGER HISTORY, on Friday January 13th from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the ISHS support organization The Friends of the Historical Museum will present the first ever “Escaping Hunger Celebrity Lock Up”; a free community event held at the Old Idaho Penitentiary. Special drawings, tours, prizes and giveaways will occur all day long. While there is no charge to attend, food and monetary donations are encouraged! All proceeds will be divided between the Idaho Foodbank and a scholarship fund for Idaho school field trips. Local celebrities will be locked up from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Their goal will be to get the most food and monetary donations. The winning celebrity will be presented with the “Warden’s Cup” and bragging rights for the year!

Celebrities includes: Blue (Idaho Steelheads’ mascot), Niccole Blaze (musician), Ty Brennan (KTVB Channel 7), Bill Coffey (musician), Nate Fowler (musician), Natalie Hurst (KBOI Channel 2), Mix 106 Team, Rick Moorten (Wild 101.1), Ryan Peck (Boise Rock School and Anna Webb (Idaho Statesman).   See Mug Shots: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150439572651669.358935.94920681668&type=1
