Alpha Media North Dallas, Texas recently raised $85,000 for the TEXOMA Back the Badge Foundation during its fifth annual Back the Badge Memorial Golf Tournament. The amount raised broke the station’s previous record of $52,000 set in 2020. The tournament took place earlier this May at Stone Creek Golf Club in Sherman, TX.

“Just an incredible year,” said 93.1 Katy Country Content Director and morning host Zac Grantham. “Our sponsors, loyal listeners, volunteers, and community leaders are simply the best! Over the past 5 years, $262,000 has been raised to support local law enforcement families in Southern Oklahoma and North Texas. We hope this event continues to create an overwhelming sense of love and appreciation for what our first responders do for us on a daily basis.”

Additionally, the station raised money through a helicopter ball drop, where golf balls were dropped from a helicopter onto the green, and the first ball landing in the hole won $1,000. This event was so much fun and very entertaining to watch! The TEXOMA Back the Badge Foundation raises awareness and assists law enforcement officers and their families that are faced with illness, serious injury, or death.
