Join us as we recognize 23 of Denver Police Department's Officers for their courage and dedication while serving the City and County of Denver. Along with lunch and an auction, the afternoon will also feature time to interact with the honorees!
We'll begin the day with an exciting auction; get your arm ready to raise your paddle and funds for critically important equipment that allows Denver Police to do what they do best - keep Denver one of the safest cities to live, work and play. Funds raised during the auction will be used to support a multitude of programs that support the Denver Police Department in keeping officers safe and enhancing public safety.
After the auction, and as you enjoy your meal, listen to and watch the heroic incidents these officers were involved in, putting their lives on the line to keep the community safe. This year's award recipients were nominated by their command staff for going above and beyond and displaying conduct warranting the highest awards in the department. You will be in inspired when you hear their stories.
Please consider joining us for this incredible afternoon. Or, if you are not able to attend, please consider making a donation to support our brave officers.
