Call out some in-shape Houston police officers and firefighters. Get out the boxing gloves.
And whadaya got? A Guns and Hoses event!
Mark your calendars for 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21 to be present at an event known as:
Summer of Fury: Battle of Heroes.
It benefits Assist the Officer.
You will need $25 to get in the door of Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company at 2101 Sumner, off Sawyer north of Washington Avenue.
You will see a total of 10 three-round fights that will feature – among other emergency responders – Houston police officers (the heroes) and firefighters.
Event coordinator Josh Nielsen said the fight schedule will be “rounded out” with law enforcement or firefighting personnel from other parts of the Greater Houston area, Texas, and even other states.
Nielsen said, with one exception, “there is no guarantee for a table. First come, first serve.”
The exception: “There will be six VIP tables at ringside,” he said. “They are $900 a table.”
There will be a full bar and food available – unless you are wearing boxing gloves.
Nielsen said the evening’s card will include three Junior Olympic fighters.
