Dining for a purpose

Published 10:22am Tuesday, November 6, 2012

SOUTH POINT — Until 10 p.m. today, anyone who dines at Bob Evans in South Point could help a child have a brighter Christmas.

The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office is raising money for Shop With A Cop and today, Bob Evans will donate 15 percent of sales from each ticket to the effort when diners present the Bob Evans community fundraiser flyer.

The flyer must be presented at the time of check-out and is only valid at the South Point location on County Road 406.

The sheriff’s office is also raising money by making apple butter on Saturday. The cost is $8 for a quart-sized jar.

Raffle tickets are also for sale for $5. The tickets are being sold by the sheriff’s office, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Coal Grove Police Department and other law enforcement agencies. The prize is a 24-inch flat screen TV, which will be drawn for Dec 17 at the Shop With A Cop event at the South Point Walmart.

To get a Bob Evans flyer, apple butter or raffle ticket, contact a law enforcement officer.
