Battle of the Badges fundraiser kicks off

The 100 Club of the Texas Panhandle is announcing fighters for the annual Battle of the Badges.

The organization helps the families of first responders if their loved ones are killed or injured.

The Battle of the Badges is a boxing tournament that pits firefighters against police officers.

That event is happening April 27th at the Amarillo Civic Center.

A check for $10,000 is also being presented to the City of Panhandle for a new Jaws of Life.

If there are no needs for families, the organization can grant money to city fire or police departments with specific needs.
