(KPLR) – The Guns “n” Hoses fundraiser has been rescheduled for January 30th.

The event normally takes place the night before Thanksgiving.

But it was moved because organizers were concerned that fire fighters and police officer participants would be weary from working long hours of extra duty due to unrest in the Ferguson and St. Louis.

The event is the largest fundraiser for the BackStoppers, a nonprofit that provides financial support to families of the region’s first responders killed in the line of duty.
