Can Cops Cook fundraiser a success

BRATTLEBORO — We at Safe Place Child Advocacy Center hosted our fifth annual Can Cops Cook competition on Feb. 29 at the VFW. I wanted to take the time to thank all the people and corporate sponsors who made it such a success.

First, Lisa Lofting and her crew at the VFW were so amazing and helpful! The VFW took care of all of our needs, from donating the space and the bartender, to promoting, to setting up and breaking down before and after the event. Their excitement for our cause and event really helped to bring some good energy to the entire process.

We have worked with the VFW several times over the past few years, and their consistent support has always made us feel calm and ready for whatever we are planning.

We would also like to thank our corporate sponsors, without whom we would not have an event!

We thank those members from law enforcement, and our very own executive director, who participated in this event.

It is always so much fun to sample everyone's concoctions. This year's winner was Detective Sergeant Jesse Robson from Vermont State Police with his grandmother's corn casserole recipe, but every dish was delicious!

And, lastly, thank you to all of you who came to Can Cops Cook! It was such a blast seeing all of your faces as you mingled, ate delicious food, and took pictures in our photo booth! Let's do it again next year, yeah?

Thank you, thank you, thank you to our amazing, supportive, generous, lovely community for all of the help we receive throughout the year. You are our village, and we appreciate you all so much!
