2nd 2013 Cookout For A Cure

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The latest round of storms to hit the Magic City did not stop people from grabbing a burger to support the fight against cancer Tuesday evening.

The Spoke Shop on Broadwater Avenue on the Billings West End hosted the second KULR-8 Cookout For A Cure this year. People lined up for a burger even before the event started at 5 p.m. A patron at the cookout said he is optimistic that one day, there will be a cure for cancer.

"I think it will one of these days. Just like Polio, it will reach its goal," said John Willard. He knows a person close to the KULR-8 family who was affected by cancer. He is Linda Shandy's brother-in-law. Linda worked for KULR-8 Television for more than three decades, until she succumbed to cancer in 2011.

KULR-8 will be at the Spoke Shop, every Tuesday, until the end of June, for the Cookout.
