(ST. LOUIS, MO) A new benchmark in attendance was set at the 30th Annual Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses event held at Scottrade Center Wednesday night.
A record-setting 18,038 watched Team Blue top Team Red, 11-5, in an evening that featured area first responders battling in exhibitions that consisted of a dozen boxing matches and four mixed-martial arts contests.

Although the total monies raised from Wednesday’s event was still being calculated as of press time, individual donated checks of $126,000 from Supplement Superstore, $63,000 from Anheuser-Busch and $20,000 from Sappington Elementary were presented during the evening.
