Press release provided by Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office:
At 9:00 A.M. Saturday, December 20, 2014, Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office hosted its third annual Santa Cop event at State Theatre of Culpeper. Approximately two dozen Culpeper Sheriff’s Deputies, as well as Culpeper Police Officers and volunteers, received 36 local families to share a continental breakfast, followed by a screening of Christmas movies selected by the Library of Congress. Guests watched Santa live on the big screen as he arrived at the Culpeper County Airport, and school resource officers transported him to the Theatre. Following the presentation, Santa and his elf visited with the families, as officers helped distribute wrapped presents and food baskets.

Funding for the event was obtained through a Daryle Singletary concert and the annual golf tournament held in August and private donations to the Culpeper Sheriff’s Charitable Fund, Inc. This year those contributions went to purchasing Christmas gifts for 122 of the county’s neediest children, as well as a meal, including a turkey donated by Culpeper’s Walmart and side dishes donated by Martin’s, for each family to share on Christmas Day.
