Guns & Hoses Update: PD vs Fire

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 Memorials.
   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 :)
