On Wednesday night, the Pigs took back the win 7-4 for the 36th Annual Pigs-N-Heat charity hockey game. Proceeds from the game go to the Marquette County Fire Relief Fund, which helps local families that have been affected by home fires. Part of the draw for fans is the friendly rivalry between the Pigs, local law enforcement, and the Heat, local firefighters. "We get to blow off some steam, get some camaraderie together because we see each other in bad times, and this is a better team-building event, I would say," says Jon Wheeler, a firefighter and player for the Heat. The game also featured a 'Chuck-a-Puck" contest as well as a raffle for $1,000. There was also an awards ceremony before the game featuring the police officer and fire fighter of the year, as well as different youth hockey teams and check presentations. A crowd of around 2,500 fans came to watch the game.
