Red, White & Blue BBQ and Valor Awards
July 22 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Red, White and Blue BBQ and Valor Awards is a celebration of Sumter County’s first responders and community heroes! The police, fire, and EMS service members answer the call of duty each day to protect the health and safety of Sumter County residents. Enjoy a delicious down-home BBQ dinner while we honor a deserving member of each of Sumter County’s public safety departments with a 2021 Valor Award. We will also recognize a deserving recipient whose noble efforts make a positive impact on the community with the Community Hero Award. Nominations for the Community Hero award can be made here. Sponsorship information can be found here.
Headlining the event are conservative firebrands and Fox News contributors Tomi Lahren and Sheriff David Clarke. Lahren is also a host on the digital streaming platform FoxNation. She is also the author of the new book “Never Play Dead: How the Truth Makes You Unstoppable.” She is the youngest political talk show host in history. Her signature “Final Thoughts” segments exceed 500 million views on Facebook alone. Previously, Lahren served in a communications role at Great American Alliance, hosted “Tomi” on the Blaze, and “On Point with Tomi Lahren” on One America News Network. After nearly four decades in law enforcement, Sheriff David Clarke has found innovative ways to serve the public that gives him the freedom to reach millions of Americans with his message, unfiltered by the confines of holding an elected office. In addition to his dedication and focus as the Sheriff of a large metropolitan county, Clarke developed a passion for political commentary. Fondly referred to as the “People’s Sheriff,” he is a frequent guest commentator for world renowned national news programs on issues such as the reasonable use of force by law enforcement and preserving the Second Amendment.. Just one of his interviews, where he sparred with Don Lemon of CNN, has nearly 3.4 million views on Youtube.
Set against the rustic elegance of Silo Oaks in Sumterville, the Red, White, and Blue BBQ will be an evening to remember. Ticket information will be available soon.
