Guns N' Hoses game raises money for storm victims

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Firemen took down the policemen in the Guns N' Hoses basketball game Saturday afternoon.

The event was put on by the Leader academy, made up of 120 students from Monroe, Dougherty, Lee County and Albany high schools.

All of the Proceeds from the game will benefit the storm victims and the Albany Relief and Recovery.

This is the first year for the Leader academy, and they've done community outreach through the sponsorship of Chick-fil-A.

Saturday's event is was a collaborative final project for the students.

"Everybody loves basketball, so we might as well do a basketball game," said Monroe senior Jalin Brown who helped plan the event. "This was the biggest idea we had."

Chick-fil-A gave the students $6,000 for this final outreach event of the school year.
