Charity Hockey Game to raise money for families of the Granite Mountian Hotshots Crew

You busy next weekend, July 13th, from say noon to 2 pm? Are you a hockey fan? Do you just want to get out of this crazy heat for a couple of hours? All while raising money for a great cause? Well, the Guns and Hoses Charity Hockey game will suit you just perfect then! The game will be between local Policemen, vs. local Firemen, all to raise money for the
100 Club of Arizona.

The Granite Mountain Hotshots Crew
By now, we all know of the tragic event that took place last Sunday, when 19 members of Granite Mountain Hotshots crew lost their life while fighting a wildfire on Yarnell Hill, in Yarnell, Arizona. The 100 Club supports the family's of fallen fire fighters and police officers. Within hours of the tragedy, the 100 Club had already distributed checks and was offering support to the families of those lost. It is a great cause, and well worthy of our support.

The event will be held at Polar Ice in Gilbert. Admission is FREE! They will be collecting donations. There will also be a charity basket raffle, featuring many themed "baskets" for you to bid on. Be sure to check out (and bid on) the Beer Czar's "Drink Local" beer basket (pictures here)! (if you have any local Arizona beer items you would like included in the basket, please contact me)

There will also be a Fire Truck, and Police Car there for the kids to check out!
