BBQ Challenge to benefit first responders

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

First responders in Albany and Dougherty County are preparing to face off in a barbeque challenge.

More than 8 cooking teams with the Albany Police and Fire Department and surrounding departments will participate in the First Responders BBQ Challenge. It's also an opportunity for the public to come out and interact with public service officials. The challenge will take place behind Sonny's BBQ on Slappey Blvd later this month. They'll make everything from hamburgers, to sausages and pork.

" We really wanted to do this for first responders because they're America's heroes. A lot of times they do thankless jobs, they go out in the middle of the night, they go out in rain, they go out in any type of weather. They take care of the people in this community and basically in this country," said David Milliner.

The free challenge is April 26th from 10 a.m. til 2 p.m. You can still sign up by sending an email to albanyfoodsinc@bellsouth.net or visit Sonny's BBQ on Slappey Blvd or call 229-291-0466. Milliner says the challenge is a great opportunity for people to see the new store they are building within the next couple of months.

Milliner is also organizing another event to help the Albany Civil Rights Institute raise money. The Boyd Grant Dinner will be held May 23rd at the Albany Civic Center. Tickets are on sale at the Civic Center and at the Albany Civil Rights Institute.
