American Federal Benefits Consultants appreciates all of our nation's First Responders. Jacksonville’s Guns N’ Hoses is an event put on by the Fraternal Order of Police Foundation and is their largest fundraiser of the year. Their first event took place in 1999. This year is their 20th annual event and it is going to be Epic. The Fight night is the one time of the year when our city’s first responders become rivals, vying for the title and bragging rights.
The boxers, work side-by-side on a daily basis, have this once a year event to raise money for charity. It is amazing what these individuals have done, so far they have raised more than 1.5 million dollars for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the FOP Foundation, which gives to several local charities.
Who are the the boxers? They are firefighters and police officers who are all amateur boxers who begin their training for the event in early January. To learn more about the event visit Guns and Hoses
