A  Thanksgiving Eve tradition continues when the 30th annual Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses boxing event benefitting The BackStoppers comes to Scottrade Center November 23.

Guns ‘N Hoses will feature 15 three-round bouts of boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) matches between police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel from Missouri and Illinois. Both male and female fighters are scheduled. Before the opening bell, Guns ‘N Hoses will honor those first responders who lost their lives since January.

Guns ‘N Hoses is presented by the nonprofit St. Louis Guns ‘N Hoses Boxing Association and sponsored by Budweiser and Grey Eagle Distributors, the Anheuser-Busch wholesaler in St. Louis County. Since its inception in 1987, Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses has raised nearly $5 million to benefit The BackStoppers.

Founded in 1959, The BackStoppers cover St. Louis City, the Missouri counties of St. Louis, St. Charles, Cape Girardeau, Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, Perry, Pike, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, Warren and Washington and the Illinois counties of Bond, Clinton, Madison, Monroe and St. Clair. The BackStoppers also cover members of Troop C of the Missouri Highway Patrol and District 11 of the Illinois State Police. After a loss of life, The BackStoppers provide money for emergency expenses and later arranges to pay bills, mortgages, debts, college costs and other expenses.
