Firefighters and policemen compete for good cause
BEAUMONT- by Haley Bull
They're historic rivals, Nederland versus Port Neches, firefighters versus policemen. Saturday, the competition was over a plate of ribs and a good cause.
Officers from the Nederland Police Department and firefighters from the Port Neches Fire Department participated in a rib-eating contest at Texas Roadhouse.
In a relay-style competition, each participant had to half a slab of ribs and two pieces of bread. The firefighters took an early lead and took home the trophy for the First Annual Mid-County Rib Fest.
The event raised money for the 100 Club of Southeast Texas. The restaurant will host another fundraiser Monday night for the cause 4-10 p.m. Organizers said they hope to make Rib-Fest an annual event.
