An In-Person & Virtual Celebration
Featuring a Special Screening of Lifesaving Moments
and a Celebrity Conversation moderated by Nina Radetich
October 22, 2020
Wynn Las Vegas
Unite for Heroism is an event that will highlight real-life footage of lifesaving moments and acts of heroism over the years. Highlighting heroism allows our community an opportunity to refocus on our officers’ and residents’ best moments in Las Vegas and provides the community the opportunity to include an alternative view of law enforcement than what is being singularly portrayed in the media – an awareness of heroic officers during lifesaving moments that do not involve racial bias or excessive use of force. Additionally, we will include our celebrity heroes and the public interest in sports and entertainment to open dialogue around community safety and inclusivity in that aspiration.
This event replaces the 2020 Sheriff Salutes the Best of the Badge Gala, which had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, and will be the LVMPD Foundation’s main fundraising event of the year.
In-Person attendance will be subject to COVID-19 gathering restrictions. This event will comply with all COVID-19 protocols that exist as of October 22, 2020. Face masks will be required for In-Person attendance.
