Cops for Kids 2013

by Eddie Gunter | Aug 05, 2013
Hello All! I hope all of our citizens in Transylvania are having a great summer. with that said, fall is just around the corner and as you all know, we raise money every year to take the under privileged children on a shopping trip at Christmas. The shopping trip, called "Shop with a Cop", enables those less fortunate kids an opportunity to get some things for Christmas that they wouldn't otherwise get. The children are paired up with local law enforcement officers at Christmas for their shopping trip. That means there are some fund raisers coming up that I wanted to make you aware of. This year we are having a benefit breakfast at the Fish Camp on September 14th from 7am till 10am. Thats right, at the Fish Camp. I know you all know what a great lunch and dinner they serve. This will be a real treat for whoever comes. Tickets will be sold in advance at the Sheriff's Office for $10.00 a plate. You can't beat that for an all you can eat breakfast buffet!
The annual "Cops for Kids" motorcycle ride will be held on September 28th this year. Kmart has once again allowed us to use their facility for this awesome ride. Registration will begin at 10:00am and end at 12:00pm. Registration fee is $20.00 per vehicle. Street rods and trucks are welcome. The ride will begin after the close of registration. If you ride a motorcycle, come out and enjoy the Western North Carolina mountains this fall. I guarantee you will have a great time, great food, and it is all for a great cause!
