Annual show will help Shop with a Cop
PLYMOUTH – It’s the first sign of Christmas – this Saturday’s annual Shop with a Cop Car Show at Centennial Park in Plymouth.
The seventh annual event will have some of the hottest cars around and helps to raise money for the annual Plymouth FOP #195 Shop with a Cop program that takes area kids in need on a shopping trip at Christmas time.
“Normally we have about 125 to 150 cars to benefit Shop with a Cop,” said Bill Andrews the events organizer. “Breakfast and lunch will be served, we have top 50 awards and drive by judging, and of course lots of door prizes and giveaways.”
Registration for the event runs from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and the cost is $10. The show sets up around Bill Nixon Field in Plymouth’s Centennial Park. All the proceeds go to the FOP’s annual program to give needy Marshall County kids a chance at a festive Christmas.
The FOP holds two other major fundraiser’s in the year – the just completed motorcycle ride and the live auction on WTCA-AM 1050.
“The economy is still tough out there which means the need will be great again this Christmas,” said Andrews. “Last year we were able to take 335 kids shopping. We want to take at least one more this year.”
