Benefit game supports Sheriff’s summer youth sports camps

Sheriff Scott H. Jenkins hosted his Annual Youth Summer Sports Camps Benefit Basketball Game recently at Eastern View High School. This was by far the most successful benefit game since Sheriff Jenkins started the Summer Youth Sports Camps in 2012.  Keeping with tradition, the opening game featured Culpeper County Sheriff’s deputies versus Culpeper County Public School teachers. In a lopsided game the teachers regained the trophy after losing at the buzzer in 2016. Thank you to our deputies and teachers for participating in a game that set the tone for the remainder of the night.

The highlighted game of the night consisted of the Comedy Basketball Team Harlem Rockets versus a combined All Star Team of Culpeper deputies and teachers.  Pregame and halftime entertainment consisted of Tug-A-War contests between children and school/business members and a performance by Culpeper Football Association Onyx Cheerleading. Floyd T. Binns Middle School Choir performed the National Anthem and Culpeper Sheriff’s Honor Guard presented the Colors. Cadets from the Culpeper Sheriff’s Office assisted with all logistical aspects of the event.  Thank you to all these individuals and groups for their support.

Special thanks to annual game and summer camp sponsors MD Russell Construction, Updike Industries, and EVHS Athletic Boosters for their continued support of the Sheriff Scott H. Jenkins Youth Summer Sports Camps.
