LIVE OAK, Fla. -- Suwannee County firefighters were cooking up some barbeque early Friday morning in support of a local non-profit organization.
They dished up Boston Butt, coleslaw and baked beans in support of Vivid Visions, who helps victims of domestic violence. The organization was very close to late Assistant Fire Chief Robert Eyer, who passed away earlier this year. The organization wanted to do something in his memory and so the fundraiser was born.
"Robert had close relations with Vivid Visions, trying to help out and have programs within the community," said James Sommers with Suwannee County Fire and Rescue. "They actually honored him with this event. So we're just trying to show our support and we're appreciative of everything they do for our community and what Robert had done for our community. So we're just trying to show our support."
Vivid Visions says they hope to start doing the fundraisers in memory of Eyer twice a year.
