December 04, 2023

36th annual Guns ‘N Hoses expected to raise $1 million

St. Louis, MO (November 29, 2023) – Marcone, a leading North American distributor of home and commercial kitchen appliance, HVAC, plumbing and pool and spa repair parts and equipment, is proud to have sponsored the 36th annual Guns ‘N Hoses event.

Held November 22 at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, the event is a fundraiser for Backstoppers, which supports the families of fallen or injured first responders. It raised about $1 million and featured 12 boxing or mixed martial arts matchups.

Marcone is a longtime sponsor of the Guns ‘N Hoses event.

“With our headquarters in St. Louis, it is particularly important to Marcone that we support the men and women keeping our hometown safe each day,” said Greg Fleischut, President of Marcone Appliance Parts. “The families supported through the funds made at this event have given the ultimate sacrifice, the life of a loved one, to bolster our community.”

The money raised at the event will contribute toward the $2.5 million that Backstoppers spends to support 95 families — including 70 children — in the St. Louis area each year. Since the first Guns ‘N Hoses event in 1987, more than $11 million has been raised.
