Fighting the Good Fights


On Thanksgiving Eve, Guns 'n' Hoses celebrates 26 years of city and county firefighters and police knocking the stuffing out of each other in three-round boxing matches in the name of goodwill. Will the fuzz snuff the fire at this year's event, or will they be flamed out? Find out which team wins at 7 p.m. at Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue). Proceeds from the highly-competitive bouts benefit The BackStoppers, the group that grants immediate financial aid and long-term financial support to families of St. Louis police offers and firefighters who perish in the line of duty. Tickets cost $16 to $184.80 and can be purchased through Scottrade Center or at any of the St. Louis-area Hair Saloon locations. For more information visit
