GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -
They're the ones who are first to a scene when help is needed. But some first responders are now going the extra mile to help two Long Beach children recover from a horrific accident.
Barbeque pork was cooked outside AMR in Gulfport all day Thursday and sold later that evening. The event was to raise money for the Myers family and help pay some of the medical bills of Tyler and Katelyn Myers, who were severely burned last month.
"We put together 256 pork butts, we sold 250 tickets," said Manager of Operations for AMR in South Mississippi Greg Doyle.
Doyle does not know the Myers family, but said heading up this benefit was an easy decision.
"The service that we do for others is the rent we pay for being here on earth," said Doyle.
Others who share that belief stepped in. Barbeque World donated a truck oven. Island View Casino donated pork butts. Everyone involved, from the grill masters to the hungry customers, knew the cause was bigger than themselves.
"I said, 'Oh yeah. I'll buy one of those butts for $25,'" said David Bull.
"It was an unfortunate accident and we just want to do whatever we can," said Lori Bell.
"Right, it's all about the kids," said Kelly Lipke.
Beneath the heavy hearts were hungry stomachs.
"Oh man, we're going home, getting some bread and mayonnaise and getting down."
As they drove off with trunks full of barbeque, their message to the Myers was simple.
"Just have faith and be confident in what you believe in," said Doyle.
