The event supports three charities this year. Maddie’s Hope, The Mourning Stripe and the Brian Dulle Memorial Scholarship Fund. Organizers provided the information below on the supported charities.
The purpose of Maddie’s Hope is to raise money to be used in various ways to help in the fight against childhood cancer. Donations are used for cancer research, programs and services to support families of children battling cancer. None of the proceeds go to the Dulle family. All proceeds go to the fight against cancer and the families whose lives have been turned upside down by the disease. Since 2004 Maddie’s Hope has contributed over $18,000 to these causes.
The Mourning Stripe
The mourning Stripe’s mission is to provide emergency funds to the families of officers killed or injured in the line of duty. The goal is to provide as much of the funding a family may need to cover such immediate expenses as travel, lodging, and monthly bills.
Brian Dulle Memorial Scholarship Fund
The mission of the charity is to keep Brian’s memory alive. The “Sgt. Brian Dulle Memorial Award’ was established in honor of Brian but it also remembers all fallen officers. The award recognizes outstanding police cadets at the butler Tech Peace officer Academy where Brian was a 1998 graduate. The winner from each class is presented a check in the amount of $822 which was Brian’s badge number. The first award was presented on May 23, 2013. To date, sixteen awards have been given to the graduates since 2013.
