The ride will depart from the Fresh Market parking lot at 1:30 PM accompanied by law enforcement winding through downtown Hendersonville and finishing at Triskelion Brewing Company where you may enjoy great beer & food and live music.

This is NOT a political event, so please, no political signs, banners or party flags.  We will offer the first 175 car entrants a FREE “Thin Blue Line” exterior car window flag.

STAND T.A.L.L. began when founder Ron Kauffman heard David Clarke, former Sheriff of Milwaukee County, speak at an exposition in Atlanta in 2016. Clarke described many of the challenges and dangers that the men and women of law enforcement face in the line of duty, and asked that those attending the conference say “thank you” to law enforcement officers when they went back to their hometowns.

Ron did more than just say thanks; upon his return to Hendersonville, he decided he’d launch a program that would support local law enforcement officers by fostering positive relationships between them and our communities, as well as provide support for unbudgeted needs they have in performing their duties. STAND T.A.L.L. was born.

STAND T.A.L.L. was selected by the Walnut Cove Members Association (WCMA) to receive a donation for $5000 to assist in their many projects and programs including "Kids & Cops" at the Boys & Girls Club, and "Shop with a Hero" in conjunction with the Hendersonville Police Department. We are grateful!

As part of our Shop with a Hero program, STAND T.A.L.L. sponsored 10 kids, giving each child a $100 voucher for Christmas shopping!
Our team and one of the children(Brian Lopez) are pictured here. What a great and joyful day. We are very proud of this project and think it's safe to say that the children and families are, as well!
