“Shop with a Cop” fund-raiser Friday, Sept. 27

An officer helps a child during “Shop with a Cop” last December at Walmart.
Fauquier law enforcement officers will host a spaghetti dinner and auction Friday night, Sept. 27, to raise funds for the annual “Shop With a Cop” program.

The fund-raiser will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Fauquier County Fairgrounds.

Before Christmas each year, local cops take as many as 80 children from tough circumstances on a $115 shopping trip to Walmart and breakfast with Santa at Fauquier High School.

Some of those children come from homes law enforcement officers have visited to handle cases.

The newly-form Fauquier Cops for Children organization raises all the funds for that event.

It costs $10,000 to $12,000 a year to run the program, Fauquier sheriff’s Lt. James Hartman said.

The organization has filed for — but has not yet received — 501 (c) (3) non-profit status as part of its plan to do more community-service work, Lt. Hartman added.

“We like to grow to the point that we can award scholarships and do other things,” he said.

Friday night’s silent auction will feature tickets to a Washington Redskins game and the International Gold Cup Races at Great Meadow, a skeet-shooting package, dinners, bed & breakfast stays, 20 tons of driveway gravel and more.

Members of volunteer fire and rescue companies from Orlean and Remington will serve the spaghetti dinner — available for eating at the fairgrounds or for carry-out.

The all-you-can-eat dinner is $10 for adults and $5 for children 6 and younger.

For more information, call 540-422-8650.

Donations may be sent to: Fauquier Cops for Children, P.O. Box 3399, Warrenton, Va. 20188.
