EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

"911 Gives Hope" hands out over $120,000 to some 35 charitable organizations.

Most of the agencies and groups deal with the care of those with special needs. 

Money was also donated to the maintenance of Kids Kingdom park and to Hope Village, an organization that helps patients with Prader-Willi Syndrome.

"Every dollar that you spend on a ticket to Guns & Hoses goes back to the charity, none of its for administrative costs or overhead," says Patrick Phernetton with the Evansville Police Department. "If you come to see Guns and Hoses, the hockey game, or the golf scramble every bit of your ticket is gonna go back to children or people with disabilities."

In its most successful year to date, Guns and Hoses 7 sold about 7,000 tickets at the Ford Center.
