The Employee United Way Campaign Committee held a hamburger cookout Friday at Sue Haswell Park in Bryan.
The cookout featured a few local officials, including Deputy City Managers Joey Dunn and Hugh Walker, as well as Fire Chief Mike Donoho.
Hamburgers were not the only item on the menu.
The event also featured a dessert contest, in which city employees put their favorite desserts to the test.
The desserts were later auctioned off.
The proceeds from the event are donated to United Way.
The event was also designed to enlighten employees about the United Way and its partner agencies.
