BBQ for the Badge

BBQ for the Badge in Richardson, TX

On June 15th, 2018, our team North Central Ford hosted the annual BBQ for the Badge competition to benefit the Assist the Officer Foundation. This year's event was in support of Officer Sherrard and his family, a 13-year veteran of the Richardson police department who tragically lose his life in the line of duty. We are proud to claim surpassed our fundraising goal of over $15,000!

The annual BBQ for the Badge event is an excellent opportunity for people to enjoy award-winning BBQ while supporting their local Fire Department, Police, and First Responders. Meats included are ribs, chicken, and brisket, which are judged at the end of the afternoon. In addition to BBQ, we have vendor booths, Fire and Police apparatus displays, a DJ, special appearances, and silent auctions.

Our team at North Central Ford and the folks behind BBQ for the Badge support local law enforcement and encourage others to attend these events and help our community stay strong by advocating for those who protect and serve.

Our previous winner was Smoking Apple BBQ – Coppell Fire Department. Congratulations, everyone!
