Barbecue to benefit West Nile virus victim

A barbecue benefit for Bryan police Sgt. Donnie Manry will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Brazos Center.

Manry, a 24-year law enforcement veteran, was partially paralyzed in August after contracting West Nile virus. His family has accrued more than $350,000 in medical expenses, and his vacation time with the Police Department will keep him on the payroll only through mid-summer.

The benefit will include a barbecue with $5 and $10 plates, a silent auction and raffle prizes. Residents also may donate to the Manry family through an account at First National Bank.

The Bryan City Council on Tuesday issued a proclamation honoring Manry for his 24 years of service, and made Saturday "Donnie Manry Day" in Bryan.
