Fundraiser cookout

Gas City Police Chief Christian Huston, center, is one of several who volunteered at the cookout to raise money for the Tim Eckstein Scholarship Fund over the weekend.

If one were to look around at this weekend’s grand opening celebration at Gillman’s Do It Best Home Center in Gas City, past the man carving with the chainsaw and Bruce “Gatorman” Mitchell from The History Channel’s Swamp People, they might notice the Gas City Police Department and volunteers holding a cookout. In the midst of the flurry of activity, the cookout was a celebration of life and legacy.

The officers and volunteers were cooking for a cause, as the proceeds made from the cookout went to establishing and funding the Tim Eckstein Scholarship Fund.
