10th Annual Charity BBQ Cook-Off

Contact Leslie Whitesel at for more information.

About the Event:

Join the finest chefs in law enforcement as they cook-up hundreds of pounds of ribs and chicken to raise money for local charities. Public safety agencies create teams to compete against one another for the best bbq. Each agency chooses a charity to donate their portion of the proceeds.

In 2016, $1,000 was raised for each of the chosen charities. Help us raise even more by making the 10th Annual Charity BBQ Cook-Off a must-do on your calendar of events for October 2017.
