Stand TALL (Thank A Local Lawman) hosted an evening of food and live music Friday night.

Corks for Cops at Appalachian Ridge Cidery in Hendersonville was a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Henderson County.

Stand TALL works to promote law enforcement-related programs for young people. This one, called Kids and Cops, helps provide city park security over the summer.

"The kids are the most precious resource, and we're hoping that the program, if we kind of collaborate well, the kids will also change attitudes towards police, and that is such a big, big thing for us," Stand TALL's Ron Kauffman said.

Stand TALL is also involved in things like providing tuition assistance for students pursuing degrees in law enforcement.
