About the Whitelion Bailout Campaign

The Annual ‘Bail Out’ is Whitelion’s national fundraising and awareness campaign providing a unique opportunity to step into the shoes of a young person that has been disconnected from our community due to abuse and neglect, drug addiction and poverty. 

To get involved, participants (known as “inmates”) ‘register’ here and ‘raise’ bail to secure their ‘release’.

Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne in 2005, Bail Out has grown to become a truly national campaign across Australia, inspiring thousands of brave individuals to get locked-up for a good cause to support Whitelion youth programs across Australia. 

Whitelion invites you to make a real difference in the life of a young person by getting involved in Bail Out 2017 - an experience you won’t forget!

ABOUT

Melbourne is where the award winning Bail Out all started back in 2006. The event has now grown into a truly national campaign and is run across 5 states throughout the month of May. The City Watch House and Old Melbourne Goal are iconic venues that set the stage for a high quality unique event.

Your time as a Bail Out inmate will expose you to life on the inside with activities that simulate prison life. Upon arrival, inmates are stripped of all possessions, given an inmate uniform, fingerprinted, photographed then taken to the main exercise yard where they will be fed prison gruel. Re-enactments of cases are heard in the Old Magistrate’s Court before inmates are sentenced to some cell time with their gang or other solitary inmates.

Register for Bail Out and have experience that you will never forget.

A minimum of $1,000 (per person) must be raised to secure release.

Register NOW as an inmate, create a gang and be participate in a life changing experience. Each $1,000 raised supports:

ABOUT

Whitelion invites you to make a real difference in the life of a vulnerable young person by getting involved in our biggest fundraising and awareness campaign – Bail Out.

Bail Out is not a traditional fundraising event. There are no fancy tables, auction items, 3 course meals and you don’t need to dress up (we even provide attendees with clothing!). You will be ‘locked-up’ as a fundraising participant, known as an ‘inmate’. Your adventure will start at Blundstone Arena, before being transported to the Old Richmond Goal.

This opportunity aims to connect some of the most powerful members of the business world with the least powerful, most vulnerable young people of our community.

The Bail Out or ’lock-up’ events expose inmates to life on the inside with activities that simulate and exaggerate prison life. Inmates will be stripped of possessions, fingerprinted, photographed and subjected to interrogation. You will also appear before a Magistrate in a mock court proceeding before being sentenced to some cell time.

 

 

Register NOW as an inmate, create a gang and be participate in a life changing experience. Each $1,000 raised supports youth at-risk.
