Members of the Los Alamos Fire Department and Los Alamos Police Department will square off in a charity basketball game Saturday night.
“The Battle of the Badges” is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Griffith Gymnasium. Approximately a dozen representatives from each public safety department will take part in the game and several more will be running the concession stand and volunteering in other capacities at the event.
Admission is $5 per person. Kids 10 and under will be admitted free of charge.
Proceeds from the game will go to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Special Olympics.
The International Association of Firefighters, the union which represents Los Alamos County’s firefighters, is a major supporter of MDA — best known for its “Jerry’s Kids” campaign. Locally, firefighters have participated in the “Fill The Boot” campaign, which benefits the MDA.
Fire captain Paul Grano, one of the main organizers of the charity hoops game along with LAPD’s Cpl. Oliver Morris, said the firefighters wanted to organize another event to help these two charities.
“We came up with this ideal when we were right in the middle of basketball season,” Grano said. “We tossed the idea around at the union meeting in December.”
