St. Charles, MO – As a major sponsor, Propper recently celebrated with Budweiser Guns & Hoses as they raised a record $700,000 in one night for The Backstoppers.


Founded in 1987, Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses is a fundraising event consisting of three-round boxing matches between area police officers and firefighters, held to benefit The BackStoppers. Budweiser Guns ‘N Hoses, which has grown into one of the premier fundraising events in the St. Louis area, has raised $6.1 million to date.

“We are proud to continue to sponsor this important event that benefits the families of first responders who were injured or killed serving the communities they loved,” said Hannah Foley, Director of Marketing for Propper. “From covering medical expenses to providing education for the children left behind, Backstoppers has consistently helped family members get through the toughest times.”

The Backstoppers organization hosts the annual Budweiser Guns & Hoses charity boxing match where police officers and firefighters face off in an evening of charity matches benefiting the families of critically injured and fallen first responders.

Started in 1959, The BackStoppers provides needed financial assistance and support to the spouses and dependent children of all police officers, firefighters and volunteer firefighters, and publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs who have lost their lives or suffered a catastrophic injury performing their duty.
