Barker's Island Inn hosts Jail and Bail

The Superior community comes together to help the March of Dimes continue lifesaving work to prevent premature birth and birth defects.

Barker’s Island Inn hosts the March of Dimes Jail and Bail 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 17. Participants are thrown in a mock jail and raise bail in the form of donations to the March of Dimes.

March of Dimes generates breakthrough scientific solutions to eradicate health problems. With 450,000 babies born too soon, one in 10 in Wisconsin, ending the crisis of preterm birth is our latest mission. Premature birth is a leading cause of newborn death, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, hearing loss and blindness.

Premature birth is not only emotionally costly, but it has huge financial impacts. Premature babies cost 14 times as much as a healthy baby.
