Battle of the Badges


The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department in partnership with Lexington County public safety agencies, Lexington County School District One and the Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation donated $8,303 to the Make A Wish Foundation. The donation reflected proceeds from the fifth annual Battle of the Badges charity basketball game and dinner, which was conducted on Saturday, March 1 at Gilbert High School, 840 Main Street, Gilbert.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts and Lexington County Public Safety Director David W. Kerr said the $8,303 that was donated to the Make A Wish Foundation will enable a local child to realize the child’s wish of taking a trip to Disney World. The child’s parents wish to keep the child’s identity private. All proceeds from the Battle of the Badges benefitted the Make A Wish Foundation.

The Battle of the Badges featured a charity basketball game between a team of sheriff’s deputies and a team of personnel from Lexington County Public Safety, which includes the Fire Service, Emergency Medical Services and 911 Communications Center. The Sheriff’s Department team won the basketball game by a score of 70 to 55. About 400 people attended the event.

Resident Deputy Joe Auckerman, who serves the Gilbert, Hollow Creek and Summit communities, and Fire Service Station #8 Apparatus Operator Tony Banco coordinated their agencies participation in Battle of the Badges, Metts and Kerr said.

The Battle of the Badges charity basketball game and dinner reflects the Sheriff’s Department mission of providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County, Metts said.
