Bench and bar square off for 7th annual Culinary Challenge

 The 7th Annual Bench Bar Culinary Challenge will be hosted Thursday, June 12, at 5:30 p.m.

The event will feature competitions among judges for desserts and lawyers for appetizers, and a live grill-off between teams Grilled by the Hour and Grilled from the Bench. 

The event is typically held in a judge’s backyard. This year it returns to the home of Court of Appeals Judge Kirsten Frank Kelly in Grosse Pointe Park.

Proceeds benefit Alternatives for Girls, Crossroads for Youth and the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan Foundation’s scholarship fund.
