The Battle Of The Badges was a huge success for the two local first responders groups.  Both teams came out and played a great game with the final score being 9 to 5 for the Strathmore Fire Department, but the real winners were the two local charities.  $8,500 will be split between the Wheatland County Food Bank and The Strathmore Child, Youth and Family Hub.  The funds were raised through donations for admittance to the game and the silent auction items donated by many local businesses and bigger sports franchises like the Calgary Stampeders and the Calgary Flames.  Both The Strathmore RCMP and The Strathmore Fire Department wish to make this an annual event.
