MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Marquette’s Lakeview Arena will be the site of an epic ice hockey battle between Marquette County firefighters and law enforcement personnel. The teams are gearing up for the 30th annual Pigs-N-Heat hockey game Wednesday evening at 7:00.
Brian Olson, President of the Pigs-N-Heat Fire Relief Fund, joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt and Mike this week to preview the show. Olson explained that the game draws thousands of fans and offers an evening of spirited hockey action, with bragging rights on the line for another year.
The Pigs-N-Heat game draws between 3,000 and 4,500 people, raising thousands of dollars to assist fire victims.
Olson said the whole event has a serious side, as well, as the proceeds from the fundraiser going into the Pigs-N-Heat Fire Relief Fund that provides assistance to area residents who have been affected by fire.
