02-27-10 Guns & Hoses Update: PD vs Fire
Boise, Feb 27, 2010 - It was 3 - 3 until the
final minutes of today's annual charity Guns & Hoses hockey
game. Finally, after a hard fought match, the law enforcement team
scored in the final moments to win 4 - 3.
"It was a lot of fun and very exciting," said
Boise Fire Chief Dennis Doan.
Boise Mayor David Bieter dropped the ceremonial
first puck to start the charity game this afternoon at Qwest Arena.
Tickets to the charity game were free. Money was raised through
package ticket sales for both the charity game and tonight's Idaho
Steelheads game, along with proceeds from several silent auction
items and other donations. It's a bit too early to tell how much
money was raised (we'll follow up this coming week on that.). Money
raised goes to benefit the Idaho Firefighter and Police
On behalf of all the players, from Boise and fire
and police agencies valley-wide, THANK YOU to all
for attending and supporting the effort.
Look for big things next year as we celebrate the
10th anniversary of the rivalry - I mean charity game :)
