Kick off your weekend with a hearty pancake breakfast at the 19th annual Cops That Cook event, 7-10 a.m., Friday, Aug. 18. The pancake breakfast, whipped up by Lakewood’s police agents, is at the Clements Community Center, 1580 Yarrow St. Tickets are $4 in advance, $6 at the door, $3 children 12 and under.
This event is a community favorite with proceeds benefiting the Lakewood Police Department’s Caring by Sharing program. The program assists Lakewood’s less fortunate senior citizens throughout the year through a variety of events. The headline project is around the holiday season, where funds raised go toward the creation of boxes filled with food and gift items that are delivered by City personnel and community members. In addition to these holiday baskets, the program provides support to the Action Center with backpacks, school supplies and winter apparel throughout the year.
In addition to a delicious breakfast, event attendees can mingle with police agents, see a K-9 police dog demonstration, check out a SWAT vehicle and get a free photo with an agent.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at the reception desks of the Clements Community Center, Lakewood Police Department, 445 S. Allison Parkway, and Community Resources Department, 480 S. Allison Parkway. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door. For more information, please call 303-987-4820 or visit Lakewood.org/CopsThatCook
. For those unable to attend the breakfast, donations can also be made by visiting the website.
