Benefit the Badge, brainchild of Nolan Fogle and the Fogle Family Foundation, is an organization that was originally founded as a multi-sport tournament series to support law enforcement during National Law Enforcement Recognition Week in June. Now, the organization honors wounded and fallen officers year-round, giving back to provide resources to law enforcement agencies, and support for families of wouned or fallen officers. Benefit the Badge also works to elevate Branson with a national presence that demonstrates the ways a community can honor, respect and cooperate with law enforcement.
“Our law enforcement needs us now more than ever,” said Nolan Fogle of Benefit the Badge, of the Fogle Family Foundation.
This week, Fogle and his family delivered funds raised to more of the officers and departments that participate in Benefit the Badge.
“When we finish this week we will hand out around $25,000 and that is thanks to all of our incredible sponsors, volunteers and men and women in blue that help make it possible. One of our fundraisers is our steak/food sales that we have. The next one [started] July 30.”
