  Original Published: 10/21/2013Over $5,000 was raised Sunday at the 11th Annual Shop with a Cop fundraiser held at O'Bryans Pub, 1065 Claremont Ave. in Ashland. Kim Mager, Ashland Police Officer and coordinator for the Shop with a Cop Program, said hundreds of items were donated from businesses and members of the community for the silent auction. "We have jewelry, purses, restaurant gift certificates and gift baskets ranging from $10 to $500," Mager said. Proceeds from the annual event are used to take under privileged children shopping during the holiday season. "On the Sunday before Christmas we take as many children as we can shopping. Every law enforcement agency in Ashland County participates in the program," Mager said. "During the shopping spree we pair up a law enforcement officer with a child and they purchase the items together," Mager said. Mager said the Ashland Downtown Dream Cruise and Car Show also donated $9,000 to the Shop with a Cop program. Mager said she is pleased with the large amount of money raised this year for the program because it will help make Christmas magical for children less fortunate.
