Guns & Hoses – Support Your Local First Responder! The candlelight vigil yesterday for fallen officer Doug Barney (who was killed in a shootout in Holladay 1.17) was incredibly emotional for everyone. Even more so when fellow officer Jon Richey walked out to honor his fallen comrade while still recovering from three gunshot wounds to his legs.
These incredible men and women need our support as they’re putting their lives on the line for us. Local police and firefighters are joining collaborating with the Utah Grizzlies to raise funds for foundations that support the families and first responders. This is a great way to honor Officers Barney and Richey for everything they did to keep the community safe.
Grab a ticket for the Grizzlies game on Saturday, January 30th, and it’ll get you into 2 other games at 1pm and 2:30pm played by Guns & Hoses – local police and firefighters to raise funds for the charities that support first responders. Keep a little extra cash on hand to bid for a jersey worn by your favorite Grizzlies player – they’ll be auctioned off after the game and the money donated to the charities as well! You can buy your tickets here.
