Online PR News – 07-September-2013 – Sacramento, CA – Creatine Marketing believes that businesses have a responsibility to support their local communities. In the spirit of this ideal, they will be attending this yearâ€™s Battle of the Badges to support three amazing Sacramento-based charities: the Fire Fighters Burn Institute (FFBI), the Sacramento Sheriffâ€™s Toy Project and the Sacramento Fallen Officers Resource Fund.
About Battle of the Badges
Battle of the Badges was started in 2003, and it is owned and operated by a group of police officers, firefighters and military personnel. It is a charity boxing event that helps raise money to support on-profits. With the support of local sponsors, Battle of the Badges has become a very successful annual event and hosts crowds in excess of 3,000.
The event will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center on Aug. 24 at 6:00 pm. Tickets are on sale now for prices as low as $20. Here is some information about the charities that the event will benefit.
About the Charities
The Firefighters Burn Institute is a non-profit established in 1973 by the Sacramento Area Firefighters Local 522. In 1974, the organization helped open Sacramentoâ€™s first burn unit in conjunction with U.C. Davisâ€™ Medical Center. The FFBI raises funds through various events including the Buy-a-Brick Fundraiser, boot drives, grab feeds and galas. The money it raises supports public education efforts, burn treatment and rehabilitation research. The money is also used to fund various FFBI projects including the Burn Camp for Kids. The Burn Camp offers fun and engaging activities that help young burn survivors heal physically and mentally.
The Sacramento Sheriffâ€™s Toy Project started in 1984 to connect less fortunate families with people capable of helping them. Each year, the charity collects bicycles, computers, clothing and other items to donate to deserving families in the Sacramento area. Another program operated by this organization allows law breakers to reduce their sentences by helping local families. This effort is supervised by the Sacramento Sheriff Department.
The Sacramento Fallen Officers Resources Fund raises money for officers who are injured on the job and for families of officers that fell in the line of duty. The organization holds several fund raisers throughout the year including the Titanâ€™s Cage charity fight.
Creatine Marketing is excited to attend this event for the first time, and looks forward to having the opportunity to support it in the future as well as other causes!
