The cook off event, co-sponsored by Rex Distributing, drew teams from local businesses as well as firefighters from Biloxi, Ocean
Springs and Gautier. Event organizer David O’Keefe and wife, Rebecca, decided to donate the proceeds to USA because of the number of local burn victims treated there.

The USA Regional Burn and Wound Center provides specialized care to burn and trauma patients in South Alabama, Northwest Florida, Southern Mississippi and Eastern Louisiana. Located at USA Medical Center in Mobile, a Level I Trauma Center, it is the only facility in the region able to provide burn care from injury to recovery.
