Members of the Bossier City Police and Fire Departments will hold a fundraiser cookout to benefit the Louisiana-Mississippi Chapter of the ALS Association this Thursday, October 27 from 11 a.m. until 1 pm at the Liberty Garden, 620 Benton Rd.

Hamburger lunches will be available for sale to all city employees and members of the public for a donation in the amount of their choice.
