Local law enforcement and fire departments will duke it out on the court for a good cause at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, at the Berrendos Middle School Gym.

The event is being held to raise money to help a group of middle school students take an educational trip to Washington D.C.

The Guns 'n Hoses basketball game will feature players from the Red Bluff Police Department, Tehama County Sheriff's Department and California Highway Patrol playing as the guns. The hoses will feature players from the Red Bluff Fire Department and CalFire.

Students will spend a week visiting places like the Holocaust Museum and the Vietnam War Memorial. The trip itinerary has been planned to follow sixth through eighth grade Social Studies curriculum. Students will get a chance to experience firsthand what they have been studying for the last three years.

Admission to the game is $5 and can be purchased at Tommy K's Yogurt, 218 S. Main St. More information is available by calling call 228-2139.

Additional donations are being accepted at Sierra Central Credit Union under the name of "Washington DC Trip."
