Yesterday [May 13] PRIDE Bermuda hosted their third annual “Celebrity Lock-Up”.
Well known locals such as Bruce Barritt, Patrina ‘Power Girl’ O’Connor, Qian Dickinson, Keival ‘The Captain’ Burgess and Terry Roberson, General Manager of Bermuda CableVision, were publicly “arrested”, transported to “jail”, and tried in a “courtroom.”
They were then sentenced to jail time, and only by raising sufficient bail from friends, family and business associates could the “criminals” get out of jail. Community activist Scott Smith was seen praying for one “prisoner”.
Judith Burgess, Executive Director of PRIDE Bermuda, said: “The Celebrity Lock-Up is a fun and yet educational way to raise funds for PRIDE, while also involving local celebrities and the community in the awareness-raising process. Our goal as an organisation is to enable adults and youth to learn and share solutions to promote drug prevention so that we can make our community safer, healthier, and more productive.”
PRIDE Bermuda is a registered charity committed to drug prevention education and awareness. Last year’s Celebrity Lock-Up event raised $75,000 for PRIDE Bermuda.
