🎗️ Join us in supporting Breast Cancer Awareness! The Osage County Sheriff’s Office proudly takes part in the Pink Patch Project, alongside over 756 First Responder Agencies. Throughout October, our deputies will be wearing pink patches on their uniforms to raise awareness.
This year, we’ve teamed up with Trigger’s BBQ for a special fundraising event on October 14th from 9am to 4pm at 414 Kihekah in Pawhuska. Come enjoy live music, delicious food, fun games, and browse our participating vendors. Join us for a 9am Fun Walk where participants will receive an event T-shirt. And for selected BBQ meal combos, you’ll even get a collectible Pink Patch!
The Pink Patch Project originated in 2013 with the Seal Beach Police Department in Southern California, who started wearing pink patches during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In 2015, the Irwindale Police Department sold their patches to the community and raised over $20,000.00 for the City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading cancer centers.
Chief Anthony Miranda brought this fantastic initiative to the Los Angeles Police Chiefs Association, and 25 local agencies joined forces. The program has since expanded to include hundreds of partner agencies worldwide, from police, sheriff, fire, EMS, and federal departments.
