History

1974 *** 2017
43rd Anniversary

The goals and agendas of the Sacramento Pig Bowl Association-Guns & Hoses has given them a unique status across the nation….a longevity never matched by any like-group for 43 years.

The all-volunteer Committee members give assistance to honored charities who work day and night to help citizens throughout the Sacramento Valley and neighboring cities and counties.  We are one of the longest running non-profit groups in Sacramento, 43 years.

The first Pig Bowl was played January 1974, pitting Sacramento Sheriff Dept officers against Sacramento Police Department officers. Good-natured badgering resulted in a fun and fundraising game that has survived to this day.

        Sixteen years ago a NEW GAME IN TOWN was introduced!

PIG BOWL Present: GUNS & HOSES!!!!

This game pits law enforcement *HOGS* against the fire service *DOGS*. Players, whose jobs provide protection for the people of our community, practice on their own time to get into “football” shape for this great event. Money raised from the game is donated to local non-profits.

Proceeds are shared with many area non-profit groups, to name a few, VIVA-Volunteers In Victims Assistance, WIND Youth Services, Sacramento Sheriff’s Toy Project, FEAT-Families in Early Autism Treatment, Firefighters Burn Institute, Sacramento Law Enforcement & Fire Fighters Chaplaincy, Sacramento Sheriff’s Explorer Program and   Sacramento City Fire Reserve Program. 

***THERE ARE NO LOSERS IN THE GAME, THE CHARITIES ARE THE WINNERS***

Sincerely,
The Pig Bowl/Guns & Hoses Committee
