The Omaha Guns & Hoses Boxing Challenge event committee is thrilled to announce WoodmenLife as our 2020 Title Sponsor!

Guns & Hoses is a family-friendly event that features firefighters and police officers fighting for fellow first responders and a better community for all. All proceeds go to the First Responders Foundation, which invests in public safety programs and is dedicated to helping first responders be mentally and emotionally sound, physically fit, and financially secure.

WoodmenLife has a long tradition of giving back and helping others with a focus on family, community, and country. In fact, part of WoodmenLife’s community outreach efforts include holding events to thank first responders! We can’t think of a better partnership and know that together we will elevate the event and make this year’s Guns & Hoses the most exciting and successful one yet!

“The First Responders Foundation is grateful for WoodmenLife’s long standing commitment to bettering communities,” said Allen W. Batschelet, the foundation’s President and CEO. “We admire and respect their ‘boots on the ground’ focus as they make a practical hands-on difference in all they do. We are excited to partner with WoodmenLife in our common cause of supporting first responders, their families, and public safety initiatives in our area.”

“Being the title sponsor gives us a chance to thank these hometown heroes and support the First Responders Foundation,” said WoodmenLife President & CEO Patrick L. Dees. “The Omaha community is in for an exciting night, and we’re honored to help these dedicated first responders showcase their hard work.”

Thank you, WoodmenLife, for your commitment to family, first responders, and community.
