GILBERT, S.C. (AP) - Law officers in Lexington County are heading to the basketball court, and it’s all for charity.

The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, Lexington County School District 1 and Lexington County public safety agencies are scheduled to stage the 5th annual Battle of the Badges charity basketball game and dinner.

The event at Gilbert High School benefits the Make A Wish Foundation.

Organizers say the battle pits a team of sheriff’s deputies against a team of personnel from Lexington County Public Safety, which includes the Fire Service, Emergency Medical Services and 911 Communications Center.

There is also a spaghetti dinner and a magician performance.
