Founded in 2002, the Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas provides support and financial assistance to families of fallen firefighters and police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The non-profit foundation covers 16 counties in North Texas, which comprises more than 23,000 police and firefighters. To raise funds throughout the year for such an expansive area, Guns & Hoses hosts numerous charitable events, including an annual boxing tournament, golf tournament, and football championship between competitors from the police and fire departments.
Hosted by former Dallas Cowboys Jay Novacek and Kevin Smith, Sportz Partnerz's ESPN "Lunch with a Legend" events invite fans to meet, greet, and eat with a selection of NFL players and veterans in private luncheons with no more than 100 attendees. Rudy's chefs barbecue infinite amounts of brisket, sausage, and chicken to fuel mingling among fans and football stars. The intimate event allows lunchers to get close enough to smell the fame for 90 minutes of posing for photographs, listening to NFL stories, and snagging barbecue-sauce-smeared autographs. The roster of NFL guests will vary by day and location, and a complete list will be available upon registration.

Both veterans of the full-contact karate circuit, coaches Bill Flowers and Jerry Byers sought to impart the hard-won lessons of their fighting days to new generations seeking discipline and self-defense skills. So in 2006, they combined their expertise, creating the KO 101© Martial Arts & Boxing Gym as a doorway into their lifelong passion.
Coach Flowers holds belts in three forms of karate and 12 championship titles, achievements complemented by coach Byers' belt rankings in seven different martial-arts styles, including black belts in three schools of tae kwon do. In their gym, students train for both personal enjoyment and healthy competition, ultimately taking to the ring to spar against one another once the punching bags have run out of lunch money.
