 Why we do what we do

Purpose of this golf outing is a fundraiser for Back the Blue Rumble’s mission.  Our mission is to honor law enforcement officers, fire fighters and the military, from within our community, who have died in the line of duty as well as to help the families they have left behind. We sponsor events throughout the year to raise money to help support these families as well as support the many local law enforcement and fire departments in the Tri-state and abroad.   

Golf Outing Details

Standard Golf Scramble Rules and USGA Regulations apply with exception to scoring as this will include a unique scramble handicap scoring system to even the odds to all players in the outing.  This allows for all teams to have a shot in winning the outing despite “stacked teams”.  







In the event of rain, so long as it is light and isn’t accompanied by lightning, the golf outing will proceed without delay to its completion.

Should weather be severe or accompanied by heavy rain and/or lightning and delays aren’t feasible, the outing will be cancelled and prizes will be drawn for with a raffle system of names with all participants present.

About us

Back the Blue Rumble is recognized in Ohio as a newly formed charity non-profit corporation in support of law enforcement, first responders, fire fighters, and military servicemen/women and the Veteran community.

This organization is consisted of 7 board members in the Tri-State Community including 3 military veterans, and partnered with local chapters and charities such as the Police Wives of Ohio Cincinnati Chapter. When a local law enforcement officer was killed in the line of duty in our area, it had shaken every one of us to our core. So we decided to do a car show to honor the fallen officer as OUR way of Backing the Blue in a loud way. After helping host that car show for the officer, many of us wanted to continue to do this on a larger scale and more frequently. Our name was inspired by that experience of Backing the Blue in that successful car show. But we wanted to support more than just our law enforcement. So we created this non-profit corporation to do just that.

Our mission is to honor law enforcement officers, fire fighters and the military community and the families they have left behind. Our objective and vision is to not just be another organization that donates a check and then disappears. We intend on creating a network with the families of the fallen to meet and support one another during these toughest of times along with our partnered Non-profits of these communities. It is our desire to connect these families with these corporations for resources as well. We will be hosting various events to raise funds that will be donated to the selected families by our board to be honored at said events including our annual car show.

We will continue to HONOR those whom served and gave the ultimate sacrifice. We will continue to SERVE those whom bear the burden of losing a loved one. We will SACRIFICE our time and effort to do what we must to show support and show solidarity to our heroes and their loved ones. This is because if not for their service, and sacrifice, our communities wouldn’t be as great and free as it is today. We will always BACK OUR HEROES! “
