Guns and Hoses raises $3,700 for Down Syndrome research

The Prince Rupert Fire Rescue Department and Prince Rupert RCMP took to the ice for the 6th Annual Guns and Hoses Charity Hockey Game.

The Prince Rupert Fire Rescue Department and Prince Rupert RCMP took to the ice for the 6th Annual Guns and Hoses Butch Duffy Memorial Charity Hockey Game on Saturday, raising more than $3,500 for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation.

The Hoses felt confident going into this year’s game after beating the Guns 8-2 at the 5th annual game, but the loss seemed to motivate Prince Rupert RCMP this year as they who won the game 3-2.

Organizers were pleased to announce the event raised about $3,700, which is nearly double the $2,000 raised at the 2013 event. Money from Saturday’s event was donated to the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, the charity selected by the Hoses team.

In addition, a number of door prizes were given away at the event including a signed Milan Lucic Boston Bruins jersey.
