Dear Roseville Restaurant Owner or Manager,
We are grateful to our wonderful Roseville business community for supporting the City Awards Banquet honoring our Roseville police and fire personnel. We are excited to announce our 21st Annual City Awards Banquet will be held the evening prior to the 20th anniversary of 9/11 (Did you know our Roseville Fire Chief served at Ground Zero?) on September 10, 2021. This inspirational and honoring “Emmy” style awards event is our community’s “Thank You” gift back to our brave Fire and Police Departments for their outstanding service to our community. Let us not forget the challenging year and half first responders have endured.
We are humbly inquiring if you would consider joining us in saying “Thank You” to one of Roseville’s finest, our fire or police personnel for their sacrifice and service to our community by donating a gift card(s) to accompany the recipient’s award at this inspirational and honoring event. Our vision is to have each police and fire award recipient receive an award which could be passed down for generations and enjoy a nice evening out dining with their guest. Each department presents distinguished awards for a total of 10 awards throughout the evening’s festivities.
It is with heavy hearts we report in 2020 a staggering 264 (deadliest year since 1974 an increase of 96% since 2019) and so far in 2021, 127 Law Enforcement line of duty fatalities. Also in 2020, 96 Firefighters and so far in 2021, 43 Firefighter line of duty fatalities across our country. A total of 360 Law Enforcement and Firefighter fatalities in 2020 and 170 in 2021. (As of May 25, 2021)
In addition, several reports state there is a substantial increase of firefighters and law enforcement committed suicide deaths. This is one more reason, we want our fire and police personnel (and their family) to know we appreciate and esteem their sacrifice and service.
We are humbly grateful for your consideration.
If any further questions arise, please contact me anytime.
With sincere gratitude,
City Awards Banquet

Thank you for joining us in honoring Roseville’s finest, our Police and Fire Departments for their exemplary sacrifice and service to our community.
