26th Annual Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses
The 26th annual Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses will take place Thanksgiving Eve, Nov. 21, at Scottrade Center. The boxing event features three-round matches between police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel from Missouri and Illinois. Both male and female boxers are scheduled on the 17-bout card.
The event begins at 7 p.m. and has raised more than $3.6 million since 1987 to benefit The BackStoppers, a non-profit organization that assists families of first responders who die in the line of duty.
“Guns ‘N Hoses is a great tradition that has always brought the St. Louis community together with all proceeds going to The BackStoppers organization. Presented by the non-profit St. Louis Guns ‘N Hoses Boxing Association, the event is sponsored by Budweiser and Grey Eagle Distributors, the Anheuser-Busch wholesaler in St. Louis County.
Tickets are $30, $20 and $10 and are available by calling (314) 691-1377 in St. Louis City, (314) 560-9226 in St. Louis County or (618) 973-1200 in Illinois. Tickets are also available at all Hair Saloon locations, the Scottrade Center Box Office and online at www.ticketmaster.com.
The BackStoppers cover St. Louis City, Missouri counties and some of the Illinois State Police. After a loss of life, The BackStoppers provide money for emergency expenses and later arranges to pay bills, mortgages, debts, college costs and other expenses. The organization was founded in 1959.Additional information is available on the Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses Web site, www.stlgunsandhoses.com, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/BudweiserGunsAndHoses and Twitter at https://twitter.com/gunsnhosesstl.
