TEXARKANA, Ark. — A new Texarkana non-profit is supporting local law enforcement with a golf tournament later this month.
Beyond the Badge Golf Tournament will start at 1 p.m. May 14 at New Haven Golf Club, 2321 Line Ferry Road. To register, contact New Haven at 870-774-5771.
The tournament is a four-man scramble. Entry fees are $300 a team.
Prizes will be given for first, second and third place. There will also be long drive prizes, door prizes and a raffle.
“We talked about starting this organization several years ago but it was not the right time,” said Beyond the Badge President Jade Bredenberg. “We started it in September 2020 and just got our 501c3 status in February. Now we want to see how much we can grow,”
The mission of Beyond the Badge is to support law enforcement officers and their families in Miller and Bowie counties.
Bredenberg’s husband is a Texarkana, Texas, police officer and many of her friends are in law enforcement.
The golf tournament will be the group’s first public event.
“We have delivered goodie bags to officers and have done some raffles but this will be our first real public event,” Bredenberg said. “We are very excited about it.”
