The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office recently had the pleasure of participating in fund-raisers for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Ranch and the local Shop With A Cop Trail Ride.
A golf scramble was held Sept. 10 to generate funds for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Ranch, which offers underprivileged children an opportunity to spend a week at summer camp and participate in a number of fun activities.
The Shop With A Cop Trail Ride was Sept. 22 to raise funds for the local Shop With A Cop program, an event that benefits children within our community during the Christmas season.
It is always rewarding to see the excitement and appreciation on the faces of children who get to attend camp and those who go shopping at Christmas with local police officers and jail staff. Neither of these programs would be possible, however, without the participation and generosity of the people of Carroll County.
I am proud to say that Carroll County collected the largest amount of money for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Ranch golf scramble among Carroll, Gallatin and Owen counties. The scramble was hosted by sheriff’s offices in thee three counties.
The total raised was $7,549.
I would especially like to thank Brittany Shaw, daughter of Carroll County Deputy J.T. Shaw, for her hard work on this project. Brittany solicited nearly every business in Carroll County on her own volition and showed great dedication to raising money for the golf scramble. Carroll County’s performance on this fund-raising event would not have been nearly as substantial were it not for her contribution.
The trail ride generated a $1,726 profit for the children of Carroll County. A total of 82 riders participated in the event, which was held at a new spot this year. Michael Walls and Cody Human, co-owners of property on Hwy. 389, offered a very nice site for this annual event. We are grateful for their contribution and preparation of the site.
