Annual Thanksgiving boxing event benefits families of local police officers, firemen, and EMS killed in the line of duty
Online PR News – 19-November-2013 – St. Louis, MO – The attorneys and staff of St. Louis personal injury and workers’ compensation law firm Kullmann, Klein & Dioneda, P.C. are happy to be a part of the annual Guns ‘N Hoses boxing event to benefit BackStoppers.
The annual event will take place on the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. at Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis. Since 1987, Guns ‘N Hoses has raised over $4 million for BackStoppers, including $300,000 last year alone.
BackStoppers is a St. Louis non-profit organization created to give financial support to the families of first responders who are killed in the line of duty. Assistance offered to families ranges from a check given immediately after a first responder’s death to ongoing assistance with children, health, education, and even at holidays.
Kullmann, Klein & Dioneda, P.C. has been a supporter of BackStoppers and Guns ‘N Hoses for many years. Yvonne Novak, the legal administrator at Kullmann, Klein & Dioneda, is married to a police officer. “Going to this event and watching the fights is a good way to spend an evening,” she said, “and the money goes to a worthy cause.”
Guns ‘N Hoses is presented by the non-profit St. Louis Guns ‘N Hoses Boxing Association. The event will feature three-round matches between police officers, firemen, and emergency medical personnel. Plus, for the first time this year, there will be mixed martial arts (MMA) matches.
Tickets for the event are priced at $30, $20, and $10 and are available from the Scottrade Center box office, Ticketmaster, St. Louis Police Department, St. Louis County Police Department, and O’Fallon, IL Police Department.
