Fauquier County's law enforcement community invites the public to a Sept. 27 spaghetti dinner fundraiser to support Shop With A Cop.
The dinner lasts from 4 to 8 p.m., Sept. 27, at the Fauquier County Fair Grounds on Old Auburn Road. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 6 and under.
Guests can buy tickets at the Fauquier Sheriff's Office headquarters on Keith Street, the Warrenton Police Department on Carriage House Lane, the IGA grocery store in Marshall, RTO Tire & Auto in Remington, Stribling's Garage in Bealeton and the Virginia State Police office on West Shirley Avenue.
All proceeds will go toward Fauquier Cops For Children, a nonprofit organization that pays for the annual Shop With A Cop event. Every year, law officers pair with children who, through no fault of their own, have had a traumatic run-in with law enforcement. The event aims to brighten the holiday season and put the children more at ease with police.
Through donations, Shop With A Cop allows the officers to treat the children to a holiday shopping spree at Walmart, followed by breakfast, crafts, prizes and gift-wrapping at Fauquier High School.
For more information, contact Lt. James Hartman at (540) 422-8650.
