Sheriff’s Office Announces Two “Christmas for Kids” Events

  The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office has announced that we’re just a couple weeks away from two popular events held each year to raise funds for the agency’s “Christmas for Kids” program.

  NCW and the Sheriff’s office are teaming up to present the Annual Christmas for Kids Wrestling Show Friday, December 7th.  This popular fundraising event will be held at the Laurens County Fairgrounds Exchange Building with doors opening at 5 p.m. A special musical performance will begin at 6 p.m. provided by the local and very talented band CRAZY DIAMOND.

Bell time sounds at 7 p.m. with your local wrestling superstars on hand to entertain you in several high paced, fast action matches.  The night’s finale will be a Team Warfare Match in response to the Anti Social Society’s challenge to Sheriff Ricky Chastain to choose a team of his choice and meet them in the squared circle where the Anti Social Society plans to prove once and for all that they are the dominant force in the wrestling industry.

  All proceeds raised will be used for the annual Christmas for Kids Program sponsored by the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office.

  Then on the following day, the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office will conduct their 3rd Annual Christmas for Kids Toy Ride Saturday, December 8th.  Riders will leave the Laurens County Courthouse located on Hillcrest Drive at 12:30 p.m. and will ride along a predetermined route that will finish at the Laurens VFW on East Main St. around 1:00 p.m. The musical band CRAZY DIAMOND will be at the VFW providing musical entertainment and riders and passengers are welcomed to stay and enjoy the fellowship at the conclusion of the ride.

 All bikes and vehicles are invited to participate in the ride.  There is no entry fee but the Sheriff’s Office will be at the VFW to collect new unwrapped toys and other donations for the Christmas for Kids Program.

Christmas for Kids was able to assist over 700 children last year.

  Fund raising began in earnest earlier this month with the Sheriff’s Office annual Haunted Jail, where volunteers decorated the historic county jail in Downtown Laurens and participated in several frightful nights up to Halloween.
