Twenty percent of all sales made during the event at the 1137 Battlefield Pkwy. event will be donated to the sheriff’s office’s Christmas charity, the Al Millard memorial.

Al Millard was the beloved sheriff of Walker County that chose not to seek re-election due to health issues in 1996. He supported and championed Steve Wilson as his replacement for sheriff, helping to secure Wilson’s election to the position.
