(KSL News) -- Music and art filled Liberty Park today for a special fundraiser to help law enforcement exposed to toxic chemicals encountered during meth busts.

The attorney general is behind the art sale, sponsored by the American Detoxification Foundation. Proceeds will go to help pay for medical treatment for officers who are now sick because of exposure to dangerous chemicals.

Lora Mengucci, with the American Detoxification Foundation, said, "We really want to help these officers whose quality of life is going down, and we want to uplift it."

More than 50 Utah police officers will benefit. Three officers exposed to toxic substances found at meth labs died of cancer just last year.
