Annual ‘Can Cops Cook?’ event to benefit Windham County Safe Place

BRATTLEBORO — Spend an evening getting to know your local law enforcement officers in a fun, friendly atmosphere - and support a great cause.

The second annual “Can Cops Cook?” event, a friendly competition among Windham County's law enforcement officers, will be held at American Legion Post 5 on Linden Street on Saturday, April 16, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Each officer will prepare and serve up sample-sized potions of their best homemade dish. The public will vote on the top three dishes and decide which chefs should be crowned the winners. There will be a top prize for the winner in the main dish and dessert categories.

Tickets are $10 per person at the door, $5 for kids under 12, free for kids 5 and under.

There will also be a cash bar.

All proceeds benefit Windham County Safe Place Child Advocacy Center/Southeastern Unit for Special Investigations.

The center's mission is to facilitate an integrated, multidisciplinary response to victims of child physical and sexual abuse and victims of adult sexual assault that reduces trauma, promotes prevention and advocacy, and supports healing for all in our community affected by these offenses.

In support of this mission, the center provides a safe environment for individuals who may have been abused to come to talk with professionals.
