Sunset Bowl hosts fund raiser

A fund raiser for the annual “Shop with a Cop” program was held at the Sunset Bowling Alley in West Union on Saturday, Nov. 20. The event was hosted by David Osman, owner of the bowling alley, and employee Brenda Copeland. The purpose of the “Shop with a Cop” program is two-fold, to provide gifts for children during the holiday season, and to promote positive relationships between young people and police officers.

The fund raiser consisted of four raffles and a Split the Pot drawing. Additionally, half of all the bowling proceeds from noon to midnight were donated to the fund. Raffle items were donated by local businesses, Blake’s Pharmacy donated a Fall flag and a die cast Model T toy car, Yester Years donated a fall wreath, the Peebles Flower Shop donated a Christmas wreath, and the Adams County Florists in West Union donated a room spray and a candle.

Sheriff Kimmy Rogers expressed his appreciation on his Facebook page, “A big thank you to Fuzzy, Brenda and the crew at Sunset Bowl for sponsoring the Shop with a Cop Program Fundraiser. What you are doing today will make some kids happy on Christmas day.”

“Shop with a Cop” is a unique December shopping experience created by the Fraternal Order of Police. Its goal is to assist children, thereby deterring them from choosing a life of crime or violence. The participating children are identified by schools, churches, youth organizations, and social services agencies.

“There are a lot of kids out there that aren’t taken care of,” said Peebles Police Chief Rob Music. “It’s heartbreaking, especially this time of year and we all need to do what we can to help them.”

On the day of the event, uniformed officers from various local and state offices volunteer their time to shop with the children.
