BBQ benefit

 

 

Denver Fire Department recently held a BBQ benefit to raise funds for Denver firefighter/engineer Jason Van Norman, who has multiple sclerosis. Firefighters worked through the night cooking the pork and preparing for the event, Public Information Officer Dion Burleson said. Doors opened to the public at 11 a.m., firefighters said, and by 12:30 p.m., all 600 pounds of meat had been sold. Hundreds of supporters flocked to the fire station for the community event. “The overwhelming response was humbling,” Chief James Flynn said, “ and we are proud to help support one of our own.” The benefit raised $3,648.00.
