On behalf of the Fort Worth Police Officer’s Association and the Fort Worth Cops for Kids program, we invite you and your team to become a partner in our efforts to change the lives of young people in the Fort Worth community. Last year’s Cookoff was an overwhelming success, despite it falling on a holiday weekend. The competition was tough as ever with more than 95 cooking teams competing for over $7500.00 in cash and prizes. The 2017 IBCA sanctioned Bar-B-Q cook-off is scheduled for March 24-25th at the hottest outdoor entertainment venue in Fort Worth, Panther Island Pavilion, located at 395 Purcey St. FWTX. 76102.
The FWPOA’s Cops for Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2003. Cops for Kids has served more than 5,000 disadvantaged children in Fort Worth by providing scholarship opportunities, school supplies, and social activities. Its funding source is entirely generated through the generosity of citizens and benefactors. The Cookoff acts as our chief annual fundraiser. Cops for Kids is the manifestation of local law enforcement’s concern for children in our community by encouraging strong family relationships, quality friendships, and focusing on education.
