Friday's doughnut-eating contests were a part of an event called Cops on Top of a Doughnut Shop." Area police took part to raise money for the Family Justice Center of St. Joseph County
The organization helps victims recover from crimes like domestic and family violence and sexual abuse.
To bring awareness to domestic violence, the cops are spending the weekend sitting on-top of a local Krispy Kreme doughnut shop.
For $5, Michiana residents can stop by and challenge an officer to a doughnut eating contest.
Directors hope the event will bring out many spectators to donate to the cause.
"Services are really expensive, and all the services we provide are for victims of domestic and sexual violence and their offered at no cost. So people have access to free counseling, help with protective orders and support groups," Sareen Dale, Director of the Family Justice Center of St. Joseph County.
In addition to the doughnut eating contests, those attending the event can enjoy live music, a cornhole tournament, and Zumba.
