Dates: Friday, 29 April 2022

Venue: Hyatt Regency, Sydney

 

A glittering event held in Sydney honoured the State Finalists of the Rotary Clubs of NSW Police Officer of the Year Awards for 2021, following a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19.

Overview

Now in its 11th year, the annual Rotary Clubs of NSW Police Officer of the Year Awards was created through a partnership between the Rotary Clubs of NSW and the NSW Police Force.

Considered the most prestigious event in the NSW Police Force calendar, the event brings together finalists from across the state to celebrate the hard work and achievements of NSW Police Force officers, volunteers and employees.

Arinex has managed the awards since its inception and was once again delighted to offer its service pro bono to ensure this important event was highly attended and raised much-needed money for charity. 

The Arinex team’s experience with the event and long-standing relationships with all stakeholders and sponsors enabled them to streamline much of the event planning process and deliver a high-quality awards ceremony and charity auction.  

The live auction aimed to raise funds for The Rotary Foundation, which works to improve health, support education and alleviate poverty in the community, and the NSW Police Legacy – a not-for-profit organisation supporting the widows, widowers and dependent children of deceased Police Officers across NSW.

Auction prizes included a NSW PolAir Experience, an African Safari Package, a Police Marine Experience, and a visit to the NSW Police Force Dog Unit School.

Outcomes

The Rotary Clubs of NSW Police Officer of the Year Awards 2021 received strong support, with a record 540 people coming together to celebrate the finalists and winners.

The auction was also a success, bringing the total funds raised to date for The Rotary Foundation and NSW Police Legacy to over $350,000.

 

      quote On behalf of the NSW Police Force and NSW Rotary I would like to sincerely thank Arinex for the support they have given us as our event managers for this year’s NSW Rotary Police awards. If not for your generosity and support this event would not continue to be a major feature in the NSW Police calendar.”
