Police face firefighters for Special Olympics benefit
Fremont police and firefighters will lace up their sneakers and face each other on Saturday, April 14 at the Guns 'N' Hoses charity basketball game in a fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics in the Tri-City area.
"Guns 'N Hoses" tips off at 6 p.m. at Washington High School. In addition to the exciting basketball game, "Guns 'N Hoses" includes halftime entertainment; fabulous raffle prizes; live and silent auctions featuring sports and celebrity memorabilia; and a variety of food and snacks. KTVU morning news anchor Mark Curtis will emcee the event.
Proceeds from this event go directly toward supporting more than 300 Special Olympians in the Tri-City area. Special Olympics programs give these athletes chances to strengthen their character, develop physical fitness and fulfill their human potential.
The event is organized by the Leadership Fremont Class of 2007, an annual program of the Fremont Chamber of Commerce. The nine month training program is designed to identify, nurture and develop emerging leaders within our community. The program curriculum is comprised of three components: Community Issues, Personal Leadership Skill Set, and Teamwork Project.
Sponsors of Guns 'N' Hoses include Fremont Bank, Fremont Chamber of Commerce, Fremont Police Association, Fremont Professional Firefighters, Kaiser Permanente, NUMMI, the Saddle Rack and Washington Hospital.
Tickets are $5 per person and for sale at the Fremont Chamber of Commerce, Fremont Police Department and Cartridge World (39288 Paseo Padre Parkway).
