Join Us in Uptown! Crime Stoppers 2nd Annual Wine Walk Fundraiser Today Until 5:00p.m.

Come on uptown and join us! Lassen Crime Stoppers, a nonprofit that allows citizens to leave anonymous crime tips for potential cash rewards, is holding its 2nd annual wine walk fundraiser this afternoon, April 7th, in historic uptown Susanville. The ‘Jail N Bail’ Wine Walk will feature fine wines and beer at 11 uptown locations.

Participants can swear out a ‘wine walk warrant’ against individuals who will be tossed into an uptown jail until their bail is paid. The money, of course, all goes a good cause – work the Lassen Crime Stoppers group does throughout the year to help reduce crime in Lassen County.

From 2:00 until 5:00p.m. Wine Walk ticket holders can visit locations all around uptown to taste handcrafted beer and fine wines. If you get hungry some locations in uptown will have food and refreshments.

A Wine Walk ‘jail’ is being constructed in the 700 block of Main Street and when a warrant is sworn out the authorities will toss the offender into the clink. At least until the proper donation is made to the Crime Stoppers’ coffers.

How Does Crime Stoppers Work?
Each week the Lassen Crime Stoppers publish a list of people who are wanted by local law enforcement or ask for information from the public about a crime. People who have information call a special tip line (1.530.502.TIPS) and anonymously give information to authorities. If the tip turns out to be valuable for investigators it can be worth as much as $1,000 for the caller. Payments are also made through anonymous channels.

Lassen Crime Stoppers is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization it depends upon fundraising events and donations to be able to continue performing its essential work for the community.

The first 115 ticket buyers will receive a commemorative wine glass. Tickets are $35.

Wine Walk sponsors include Serendipity Salon, Hair Hunters, Uptown Uniforms, Lassen Ale Works, Margie’s Book Nook, Forest Office Supply, Chick-A-Dee Boutique, Sierra Jewelry Company, Elegant Iris and Men’s Den, Sierra Desert Properties and Mickey’s Country Closet.
