ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - The Gun N’ Hoses hockey charity game is back for its 19th year.

Each year, Roanoke-area firefighters (the “Hoses”) take on a team of Roanoke-area police officers and law enforcement personnel (the “Guns”).

During the last 18 years, Roanoke’s Guns N Hoses has raised over $450,000 for charity, and more than 90,000 people have attended the games. This year, they hope to surpass half a million dollars.
