GROESBECK (April 25, 2013)-A BBQ fundraiser will benefit the West Lake Limestone Volunteer Fire Department (WLLVFD) Saturday.
The event will take place at the WLLVFD at 6614 FM 937 in Thornton.
BBQ plates will be on sale for $8 and include different types of meat along with beans, desserts, and other items.
All proceeds will go to the West Lake Limestone Fire Department. However, firefighters say in wake of the West tragedy, they would have liked to have had the proceeds benefit the West Volunteer Fire Department.
"We had a discussion to have some of the proceeds go to the West Fire Department but the laws won't allow us because we didn't advertise the event as a fundraiser," WLLVFD Responder Ross Utdegraff said.
The fire department is in the process of planning a separate fundraiser to benefit the West VFD, Utdegraff said.
"We hope to do a fundraiser for West as soon as things settle down and they have a better idea of what they need," Utdegraff said.
