Despite the great challenges of 2020, Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses presented $500,000 to BackStoppers from their 2020 fundraising efforts. This donation is the result of the unwavering dedication of the Guns ‘N Hoses committee, volunteers and supporters. Our deepest gratitude is extended to everyone who helped generate this essential support of our mission.

“It’s been a challenging year for first responders, the families we serve, for Guns ‘N Hoses, our region, and our nation. And yet, once again, Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses comes through for families of fallen heroes and ensures they will be well taken care of for years to come. To generate this level of support in the face of adversity is phenomenal. This isn’t possible without David Stokes, Steve Holley, and Jack Martorelli, whom we miss dearly, the Guns ‘N Hoses Board of Directors, and every volunteer who pours their heart into this effort. I especially want to recognize Budweiser, David Stokes and Grey Eagle, the Ring of Champions sponsors, and all Guns ‘N Hoses sponsors for staying by our side this year and every year. You continued your sponsorship and because of you Guns ‘N Hoses continues. We will never forget the unmatched commitment of the Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses sponsors and the impact it has on the families of our fallen heroes. This impact is on-going and long term. On behalf of the BackStoppers Board of Directors and the families we serve – thank you from the bottom of our hearts!” – Chief Ron Battelle, BackStoppers Executive Director

We will see you for Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses 2021!
