It's not everyday we are surrounded by 120 firefighters, police officers, and EMS professionals. On August 20th, we hosted the 2nd annual Battle of the Badges at The Den at Fox Creek Golf Course in Bloomington, IL.
First Responders from across Illinois signed up their foursomes and took time off work to spend the day with us. We work alongside them everyday as we respond to a fire loss at a home, vandalism call for a board up, or a vehicle accident resulting in repairs needed to a home or business. We respect these heroes at the highest level and host this golf outing to show them just a glimpse of our appreciation, completely free of charge to them.
New this year were company sponsors! Ten local companies stepped up and donated in a huge way! From monetary donations to prizes, the following companies helped make this event possible, and we are so thankful to work alongside them everyday.
Dinges Fire Company
Baxter's American Grille
Flat Branch Home Loans
Pedal Your Own Party Pedal Bus
The Bryson Smith Keller Williams Team
