Barbecue raises $2700 for carpenter’s cancer treatment

A benefit barbecue for UWindsor carpenter Bernie Mulligan ran out of food before it ran out of enthusiasm, organizers said Tuesday.

“We sold the last of our hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken and still had takers,” said Campus Police sergeant Floyd Porter.

The barbecue ran out shortly after 1 p.m. and had planned to serve until 2 p.m.

"That just goes to show you how eager people were to help out," Porter said.

The event raised more than $2,700 to offset costs associated with an experimental treatment to fight Mulligan’s cancer.
