Thank you to Bobby Ukrop and Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods for supporting our first responders and for being a Title Sponsor of the Annual Valor Awards.

Here’s a special message from Bobby Ukrop:

“Twenty-seven years ago, the Retail Merchants Association had an idea. Why not gather our community together and offer thanks and appreciation to our local law enforcement by hosting a Valor Awards Breakfast? About 100 people attended at the Hyatt on Broad Street.

“How exciting it is that the event has grown significantly since those early days. This year, on November 10, nearly 1300 local businesses, government officials, community leaders, first responders and their families will be attending the 27th Annual Valor Awards Ceremony at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.

“It’s a pleasure and an honor to have had the opportunity to sponsor this breakfast since 1995. For me, personally, it is a must-attend event. I am truly in awe listening to the stories shared and the valor exhibited by these brave and unsung heroes while having the opportunity to meet their very supportive families.

“Thank you, first responders, for “having our backs” each and every day; we are truly grateful.”
