The proceeds of the 2016 Monroe City Battle of the Badges was divided evenly among these two charities. The policemen fought for the Jake Owen Raborn Foundation, and the firemen fought for Med-Camps of Louisiana, Inc. The Jake Owen Raborn Foundation is a non-profit foundation dedicated to financially supporting families enduring pediatric cancer, as well as providing financial support to organizations and facilities that care for families enduring pediatric cancer.
Med-Camps of Louisiana provides one week of camp at no charge to over 5,000 children living throughout Louisiana with varying illnesses and disabilities. The proceeds of this year’s Monroe City Battle of the Badges were divided evenly among these two charities. In 2016, we, you and I and all who contributed to the 2016 Battle of the Badges, Monroe Louisiana were able to donate $12,758.47 to both MedCamps of Louisiana and the Jake Owen Raborn Foundation for a total of $25,516.94.
The purpose of the Monroe City Battle of the Badges is to raise money for our selected charity. This year, the policemen and firemen will fight for the MedCamps.
Thank you for your continued support.
