An Evansville firefighter and police officer have put aside the friendly "Guns versus Hoses" rivalry to create an amazing piece of art that will be raffled off to benefit 911 Gives Hope.

Firefigher Colton Blanchard who runs Fire Hose Flags, and police officer, Jacob Taylor who runs Allegiance Art, have combined their artistic and obvious carpentry skills to craft the American Flag pictured above out of old fire hoses.

To try and get this flag for your home, you simply need to buy a raffle ticket which will be available at the main entrance of the Ford Center during Guns and Hoses on Saturday, April 9th. Tickets will be $5.00 for one, or $20.00 for five. Tickets can also be purchased in advance at Phone Todd' east and west side locations, as well as Siegel's Uniforms, and Lawman Tactical in downtown Evansville beginning Friday, April 1st (no fooling!).

Tickets for Guns and Hoses itself are still available at the Ford Center box office and online through Ticketmaster, with seats starting as low as $15!
