No - not really.

But several community leaders are willing to put themselves in the “slammer” for the sake of education.

Representative Ruth Kagi, Senator-Elect Marayln Chase, Representative-Elect Cindy Ryu, and Shoreline City Council members Chris Eggen and Chris Roberts have agreed to participate in the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce "Dollars for Scholars - Jail and Bail" taking place this Saturday evening, November 20 at the Shoreline Conference Center. The event starts at 5:30 pm.

The Jail and Bail is part of the annual Dinner Auction of the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce . This year is a western theme, hence the inspiration to do a Jail and Bail for the Dollars For Scholars portion of the evening.

During the auction, the community leaders will be “arrested” and put in a “jail” constructed for this purpose. Minimum Bail is $500 each. Bail money raised for their release will go to the "Dollars For Scholars" program that every year awards scholarships to graduating seniors who attend Shoreline schools.

Since the beginning of the Shoreline Chamber Dollars For Scholars event, over $60,000 in scholarships have been awarded.
