Annual awards pay tribute to Arlington first responders

March 26, 2014 by  

The 32nd annual Valor Awards are taking place this April in Arlington. It will be a presentation of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce.

The emcee for the awards is Jeff Goldberg and the event is set to honor those members of the Arlington Police, Fire, and Sheriff’s Department who went beyond the call of duty to make a difference in someone’s life. The different awards are for life saving, meritorious services, and valor. Honorees will receive a plaque or a printed certificate suitable for framing.

Sponsorships are available from $275 to $2,500; sponsors will be recognized on printed signs at the venue. The event will be opened by a combined honor guard representing all departments to be recognized. This will be followed by a sit-down lunch and the awards ceremony. The honor guard will close the event as well.

Arlington printing companies may be asked to provide items to events such as this. This may include signage, the printed certificates, and banners for the stage.

The Valor Awards are taking place at the Fort Myer Officers’ Club at Joint Base Myer Henderson on April 16 from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm. Tickets are $55 for Arlington Chamber of Commerce members and $65 for non-members, and all guests must register in advance. For more information about the event, contact the chamber at 703-525-2400.
