MATC Criminal Justice Student Organization Hosts Community Chili Cook-Off to Raise Funds for Police Officer Support Team March 19

March 2, 2014

The Milwaukee Area Technical College Criminal Justice Student Organization (CJSO) will host the sixth annual Community Chili Cook-Off charity event from 3-7 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, at the Oak Creek Community Center, 8580 S. Howell Ave., Oak Creek. MATC students, faculty and staff; members of local police and fire departments; and area restaurants will donate chili and items for a silent auction to raise funds to benefit the Police Office Support Team (POST).

Cost is $3 for a bowl of chili, $15 for “all you can eat,” or $10 with a student ID. Attendees will vote to select the “best” chili. Members of the public are encouraged to attend, participate by making chili or donate raffle items.

The CJSO hopes to raise $10,000 to support POST, which helps members of the law enforcement community who are suffering from emotional, personal, physical or stress-related difficulties gain to access to high-quality support services. It also provides traumatic incident support for police officers. POST was founded by Milwaukee police officers in 1985, but serves all members of the law enforcement community and their families regardless of jurisdiction or department. In addition to helping at-risk officers, POST also raises funds for many charities including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

For more information, contact Jim Dailey at (414) 571-4704, daileyj@matc.edu.
