MOSES LAKE - An annual charity golf tournament held in honor of Deputy John Bernard has sold out weeks in advance of the event, benefitting the John Bernard Memorial Scholarship fund and the Behind the Badge Foundation.

Bernard died while on patrol Jan. 3, 2010 in a single vehicle car accident, making him the first and only Grant County Deputy to have died in the line of duty.

The Behind the Badge Foundation provides comprehensive support to Washington state’s law enforcement agencies, families and communities after an officer death or serious injury. In an interview with the Columbia Basin Herald, Tami Ail, Bernard’s widow, described the organization as guiding her through the next steps, both emotionally and practically, after her husband’s untimely death.

“This organization in absolutely incredible in the work that they do,” said Sheriff Tom Jones. “As a board member of the Behind the Badge Foundation, I have seen firsthand the work that they do, most recently with their assistance given to the family of Kittitas County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Thompson.”

The Third Annual Deputy John Bernard Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled for Thursday, April 25th, 2019 at the Moses Lake Golf Club.

Though the tournament is sold out, those who would like to make a donation to Behind the Badge Foundation can contact Administrative Assistant Tracy Williams with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office at twilliams@grantcountywa.gov or at 509-754-2011, ext. 2014.
