Hockey Game At BOK Center To Benefit OKC Officer Chad Peery
TULSA, Oklahoma - Members of the Oklahoma City police and fire departments will face off with members of the Green Country police and fire departments in a hockey game. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Officer Chad Peery who was critically injured while trying to break up a bar fight in 2011.
The "Guns & Hoses" hockey game will take place at about 1 p.m. Sunday, right before the Oilers game, at the BOK Center in Tulsa.
Prosecutors said three men attacked Officer Peery in February, 2011, when he tried to break up a fight at Dan O'Brien's Pub in Oklahoma City. Peery suffered a severe spinal cord injury, and was left paralyzed from the neck down.
Tickets to the benefit game are $12 and will cover admission to the Oilers game as well. Tickets can be purchased at the BOK Center before the game.
Authorities said $5 from every ticket sold will go to the Chad Peery Foundation.
