Guns N’ Hoses raises money for national non-profits

Event pitted police department against fire department

Some fun in the sun in La Crosse helped raise funds for 2 national non-profits.

The 2nd annual Guns N’ Hoses pitted the La Crosse Police Department against the La Crosse Fire Department in a friendly, yet competitive, game of baseball.

The police department played for “Justice for a Cure” while the fire department played for the “Muscular Dystrophy Association.”

For just $10 fans got admission to the charity game as well as general admission to the 5 o’clock Loggers game.

While it may have been a little competitive at times, each team thought the day’s game was a great opportunity.

“It’s a great change of pace for us to come out here and, you know, compete with our buddies across the hall, blue verse red. It’s a great day, it’s a great time for the community. It’s awesome we get to do this for charity and raise some money so it’s a good thing,” said La Crosse Police Department Officer Nathan Poke.

Half of the game’s ticket sales went to the non-profits.
