Car show to sup­port Shop with a Deputy

Rappahannock News - - OBITUARIES • NEWS - — Patty Hardee

Do you like clas­sic cars and the peo­ple who re­store them? Do you have a clas­sic car, truck, mo­tor­cy­cle or trac­tor you’d like to show off? The Rap­pa­han­nock County Sher­iff’s Of­fice is spon­sor­ing what Sher­iff Con­nie Comp­ton hopes will be the first of many car shows to raise money for the RCSO’s an­nual Shop with a Deputy Christ­mas pro­gram. “We want to raise more money to take more chil­dren Christ­mas shop­ping,” said Comp­ton.

The car show will be held at Rap­pa­han­nock County El­e­men­tary School on Satur­day, Oct. 15. Ad­mis­sion is free to spec­ta­tors. Comp­ton, work­ing with Culpeper-based car show pro­moter Tony Tharpe, is plan­ning a day of fun, food and en­ter­tain­ment. “There will be a raf­fle and a DJ play­ing mu­sic,” said Comp­ton. And RCSO deputies and other vol­un­teers will be cook­ing and serv­ing hot dogs, ham­burg­ers, sno-cones, pop­corn and other food items.

Tharpe, who has been run­ning car shows in the re­gion since 1980, said Comp­ton plans to award prizes for the best of show and other cat­e­gories. In ad­di­tion, the top 25 ve­hi­cles will get tro­phies.

This year marks the 20th an­nual Shop with a Deputy event, in which deputies pair up with needy kids to shop at a nearby store. Each child can buy $100 worth of mer­chan­dise for them­selves and their fam­i­lies — fol­lowed by break­fast with Santa at the el­e­men­tary school, gift-wrap­ping by vol­un­teers and a food bas­ket to take home.

The free car show is 11 to 3:30 Satur­day, Oct. 15 at RCES, with car reg­is­tra­tion 9 to 10:30 a.m.; $20 per-car en­try fee. For more in­forma- tion, call Sher­iff Comp­ton at 540-675-5300 or Tony Tharpe at 540-825-6878.
