Police officers and firefighters will go head to head Saturday in the JCMO Guns vs. Hoses hockey game at the Washington Park Ice Arena in Jefferson City.

The competitive event will raise money for local charities, namely Safety Net of Missouri, which is the fundraiser's largest benefactor.

The JCMO Guns vs. Hoses Facebook page announced Tuesday evening that tickets have already sold out.

T-shirts will be available for purchase at the ice rink, as well as JCMO custom hockey pucks.

The event will also include an auction where bidders can compete for some autographed St. Louis Blues memorabilia. There will be signed player and game-used hockey sticks from Colton Parayko and Pavel Buchnevich.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and the puck will drop at 7:15 p.m. The game will consist of three 15-minute periods.

The auction will begin at 6 p.m. and run until the end of the third period.
