ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Police officers and fire fighters from all over the St. Louis area will go head-to-head in three-round boxing matches to raise money for families who lost their loved ones in the line of duty.
The 32nd annual Budweiser Guns n' Hoses event will be held Wednesday, November 21 at the Enterprise Center.
Profits go to support BackStoppers, a non-profit that raises money for spouses and children of fallen first responders. So although this event is a celebration and fun, it's mixed with sadness, remembrance and honor.
Included on the fight card is David Weinhold, whose father Sergeant Richard Weinhold, a St. Louis County police officer, was killed on duty when David was eight.
David went on to follow in his father's footsteps, becoming a police officer in St. Louis County.
