Snoqualmie Casino will host the Combat Games MMA 55 (COGA 55) event this Saturday, in honor of Seattle area first responders. Alliance MMA, Inc. has announced that tickets can be purchased in the name of specific first responders or purchased as gifts anonymously.

“We wanted to show Joey and all our first responders that we are grateful for the priceless duties they perform while serving our communities every day,” said COGA general manager Joe DeRobbio. “We decided to run a ticket promotion where fans can gift firefighters, law enforcement officers, emergency medical technicians, and all other local heroes with tickets to COGA 55 as a way to say thank you.”
