NAPLES — The Greater Naples Chamber and program sponsor Collier County 100 Club have opened a call for nominations for the 2023 Distinguished Public Service Awards. The awards will be presented to first responders in law enforcement, fire, and emergency services on November 7, 2023, at Hilton Naples.
Nominations are accepted in the following award categories: Law Enforcement, Fire Services, and Emergency Medical Services. Submit your nominations online by October 6, 2023, 5pm at napleschamber.org/events/signature-events/
Established in 2003, the Distinguished Public Service Awards are presented annually by the Chamber to our local heroes in law enforcement, fire, and emergency services who have exceeded the daily job requirements in Collier County and have gone above and beyond. This year, the award recipients will be vetted and selected by the Collier County 100 Club and the historical focus will shift from primarily senior officers to now, officers and first responders who are in the field engaging with the public firsthand daily.
“This awards program fits with our mission of financially assisting first responders and their families in times of tragedy,” said Russell Budd, president of the Collier County 100 Club. “We are extremely proud to partner with the Chamber on this momentous celebration honoring those men and women who are serving heroically in the field.”
The Distinguished Public Service Awards Ceremony will take place on November 7, 2023, from 3:30-6pm at the Hilton Naples. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available, and can be found at napleschamber.org/events/signature-events/ or by emailing Bethany Sawyer, vice president of membership and investors at Greater Naples Chamber, at email@example.com.
