The Ledwell team loves to rally around a good cause. One cause we support each year is the ArkLaTex 100 Club, a nonprofit organization that’s sole purpose is to benefit our local police and firefighters in Bowie and Miller Counties.
The goal of the Arklatex 100 Club is to raise funds for the dependents of our first responders lost in the line of duty.
The remaining funds will be used to purchase any unbudgeted but necessary life-saving equipment and additional training.
The club also provides local agencies grants for necessary life-saving equipment and training.
This includes a thermal imaging camera for the Pleasant Grove Volunteer Fire Department. A K9 officer for the Bowie County Sherrif and Texarkana, Texas Police Department.
In March, a team of employees participated in the ArkLaTex 100 Club’s annual Pull for Heroes Sporting Clay Tournament. Our team had fun participating and looks forward to the event again next year.
This fundraiser brings in $35,000+ annually – the one and only fundraising event the club has each year.
The funds raised from Pull for Heroes benefit multiple entities in Bowie and Miller Counties. As a result, grants are provided to purchase tactical/protective equipment, fund special training, and assist surviving dependents.
13 local entities in Bowie and Miller County benefitted from those funds.
