June 12, 2013 - Sixth Annual Bench Bar Culinary Challenge for charities. A unique charitable event held every June mixing judges, lawyers, fresh food, fresh air and some friendly competition. With a live grill-off between teams Grilled by the Bench and Grilled by the Hour, and competitions in the best desserts (judges) and best appetizers (lawyers) categories, everyone can vote on the best chefs in town. Last year the 5th Annual event was attended by more than 200 people and raised more than $20,000. All proceeds benefit Alternatives for Girls, Crossroads for Youth and the WLAM Foundation scholarship fund. The Bench Bar Culinary Challenge is an independent group of lawyers and judges, and is not affiliated with any specific bar association. The event is usually hosted outside at a judge's home.
