raleigh's battle of the badges

On Sunday at the RBC Center, the Hurricanes will be sponsorig the "Battle of the Badges". The Raleigh Police Department (and their ringers) will take on the Raleigh Fire Department (and their ringers) in an exhibition hockey game. The event is free to the public.

Here's a preview:

Donations will be taken, which will assist the UNC Burn Center for Children and the 200 Club of Wake County. The Burn Center is self-explanatory. The 200 club is an excellent organization that provides "immediate financial help for the spouse and children of police officers, sheriff deputies, firemen, EMS squad members and North Carolina State Highway Patrol serving in Wake County who lose their life in the line of duty."

This is the second year that the Hurricanes have sponsored the event. Chad "Sharpie" LaRose will be coaching the firemen, who won last year's contest 7-5. Justin "Viva" Williams will be coaching the policemen.

The event will start at 5:00 pm. Parking (in the East lot) and admission are free.
