Garden City Fire Dept. holding BBQ fundraiser for Chief Jimmy Crosby

Posted: Updated:
GARDEN CITY, GA (WTOC) -

The Garden City Fire Dept. is rallying up support for their leader and 47-year veteran of the fire department, Chief Jimmy Crosby.

The fire department will be selling barbecue lunches to try to raise money for Chief Crosby and his wife, who is fighting Alzheimer's.

"It's kind of a financial burden he wasn't prepared for, and so we are trying to raise money to help him with some of the financial responsibilities, and also to make sure he gets her a locator," said Amy Hendrick.

The lunch will include barbecue and two sides. You can pre-order your plate by July 18 and a ticket will be needed for pickup. Plates are $8 and tickets can be purchased at various events or at the Garden City Fire Station.

Plates can be picked up on July 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Garden City Fire Dept. Station 1, located at 160 Main Street in Garden City.

For more information, please contact the Garden City Fire Dept. at 912.966.7780.
