KENNEWICK, WA - Their jobs are to fight fires and crime, but this Wednesday they will be fighting each other.

No, it is not a real fight, but the Kennewick Police Vs. Fire Annual Basketball Game will raise funds for local charities. In addition to watching them face off on the court at Kennewick High, there will be super raffles with chances to win new TVs and even two chances to win $25,000 from HAPO. 

"I do this line of work because I love helping other people and this is the other side of helping other people," explained Officer Becca Jones of the Kennewick Police Department. "We get to deliver the food and the presents to the families that need it this holiday season and to see the kids eyes light up it definitely makes it worth it."

The funds raised on Wednesday will go to families in need. We are told that even Santa will be stopping by so make sure to bring the entire family. It all starts at 7 pm.
