Big Bopper Bopping Heads Entertainment, of Oak Hill, recently made a donation in support of the Fraternal Order of Police Fayette County Memorial Lodge 118’s annual Shop With A Cop program. Mark Hurt, right, owner of Big Bopper Bopping Heads, presents five gift certificates for a Christmas video of up to three people to James Pack, secretary of the FOP Memorial Lodge 118. Big Bopper also donated the $85 proceeds from a recent haunted house event to Shop With A Cop. The efforts of the FOP Memorial Lodge 118 and its supporters annually result in about 100 local children being able to visit the local Wal-Mart to get a few items for themselves and participate in a pizza party. A mailer will soon be sent to Fayette County residents giving them the option to donate to the program. No phone solicitations are made, Pack said.
