Tulsa, OK - 918 Fully Involved, the non-profit arm of the Annual Smoke and Guns – Cops vs. Firefighters Fight Night, announced today they raised $25,000 to be donated to Oklahoma Special Olympics and Oklahoma Firefighters Burn Camp. “We had a fantastic turn out with over 1,600 people in attendance. We can’t thank the public enough for the support,” said Dustin Fletcher, 918 Fully Involved.
On April 25, 2014, ten (10) police officers and ten (10) firefighters from across the state of Oklahoma went head to head in the Annual Smoke and Guns Fight Night. Winning six (6) out of the ten (10) fights, police took home the win. “Each fighter did an outstanding job, but I’m thrilled police won. Law enforcement from across Oklahoma work hard each year to raise funds for Special Olympics Oklahoma and I am happy to see another opportunity for us to help,” said Clay Ballenger, President of Tulsa Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) 93. Tulsa FOP 93 is also the largest cash contributor to Oklahoma Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run.
With every rivalry, there is a winner and a loser. Since police won, sixty (60) percent of the $25,000 will go to Special Olympics Oklahoma while forty (40) percent to Oklahoma Firefighters Burn Camp. “I am proud of each fighter taking time out of their busy schedules to fight in this charity event. While I am sad we didn’t win the majority of the fights, I am glad to see a large amount of money going towards Oklahoma Firefighters Burn Camp, a non-profit dear to our hearts,” said Chad Miller, President of International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) Local 176.
