Que for a Cause contest benefits Black Mountain Assisted Family Living

BRATTLEBORO — On Saturday, Oct. 8, Black Mountain Assisted Family Living will host 'Que for a Cause! a barbecue competition fundraiser. The event will be open to the public from noon until 5 p.m. on the Brattleboro Common, while area pros and amateurs will compete at the Holiday Inn and Suites.
