What is Benefit the Badge?
Benefit the Badge is a multi-sports tournament series to support law enforcement!
A project of the Fogle Family Foundation, we have partnered with Branson Police Department and the National Law Enforcement Week committee to engage community members across the U.S. in supporting those who risk their lives every day to serve and protect our communities.
We do this by hosting a weekend of multiple family-friendly tournament events for all ages and skill levels to:
Establish a $35,000 fund to host the National Law Enforcement Week June 10-17, 2017 in Branson
Partner with the Ozark Mountain community to host families of injured or fallen officers – providing hotel, food, entertainment – in a region known for its commitment to values of family, faith, friends, flag and future
Provide grants to help families of those officers with medical bills and other personal needs
All excess funds raised will go to assist law enforcement agencies in obtaining necessary resources like bullet proof vests, K-9 units, body cams, dash cams, car radios and more.
We invite you to get involved in our mission to honor and support our law enforcement!
