Burbank Police Foundation Returns to Honor Officers

The Burbank Police Foundation announces the return of the sixth annual Burbank Police Awards Luncheon after a four-year hiatus due to the global pandemic.

This cherished event, dedicated to honoring the remarkable achievements of the men and women of the Burbank Police Department, volunteers and community members, is set to take place on Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Marriott Burbank Airport.

The Burbank Police Awards Luncheon stands as one of the largest and most well-attended events in the city, garnering significant support from local and surrounding business communities, elected officials and dignitaries. The event will be hosted by award-winning media personality and local Burbank resident, Jim Roope.

“As our grateful community gathers at this Awards Luncheon, we will have the unique opportunity to share a meal with our sworn officers and support and command staff. Plus, applaud so many extraordinary achievers and heroes. Please join us,” said Michael Hastings, president of the Burbank Police Foundation.

In the spirit of unity, the foundation honors the outstanding efforts of the brave men and women who serve Burbank, as well as recognizes volunteers and community members who work tirelessly to contribute to the betterment of community welfare and security.

The sponsors of the event play a key role in raising funds to further the Burbank Police Foundation’s programs and fundraising activities including the Matthew Pavelka Scholarship Fund, Downed Officers Fund and Arrive Alive — a safety awareness campaign for local high school students — to name a few. The generous sponsors of this year’s luncheon include the Chief’s Circle sponsor Cusumano Real Estate Group; gold sponsors Worthe Real Estate Group and Smith Mandel & Associates; silver sponsor Nickelodeon; and bronze sponsors 2020 Building Services and the Michael Hastings family.
