October 2019 Public Safety Appreciation Gala

WCBA was proud to host our second annual Public Safety Appreciation Gala celebrating our Home Town Heroes! It was an awesome event with a sold-out crowd of members, guests, and honorees.

"This program is all about recognizing, supporting, and honoring our heroes and that is our main focus as we celebrate October as our Public Safety Appreciation Month", stated WCBA's Director and 2018 President, Samantha Glass.

Through the generosity of our sponsors and the hard work of our fundraising team, WCBA raised over $25,000 in 2018 and now repeated that again in 2019 to go towards supporting public safety in Cobb. Donations were made to the following public safety organizations so far in 2019:
#CobbPoliceChaplainsBenevolenceProgram
Cobb Police Athletic League
#CobbCountyPoliceDUITaskForce
Cobb County Police Explorers
Powder Springs Police Department Explorers
#CobbCountyFireandRescue Explorers
Fraternal Order of Police Kermit Sanders Lodge 13 Cobb County Cops for Kids Fundraiser
WCBA will also be hosting the Precinct 5 Christmas Holiday Celebration. Other donations are made throughout the year to different precincts, units, stations and agencies in Cobb.

Awards going our Heroes of the Year that were honored at the 2019 Public Safety Appreciation Gala were:
Officer Wendell Maharaj - Cobb County Police Department, Precinct 5
Deputy Louis Cipra - #CobbCountySheriffOffice
Detective Brett Gloyd - Powder Springs Police Department
LT. Russ Burnette - Cobb County Fire & Emergency Services Station 13
ADA Stephanie Green - Cobb County District Attorney Office
ECO Jaleah Williams - #CobbCounty911Communications

2019 Award for Excellence in Service went to Officer Cameron Mitchell of Powder Springs Police Department

2019 Community Partner of the Year went to Cobb County Police Department, Precinct 5

2019 Award for Valor went to the Cobb County Police Department SWAT Team


It was our pleasure and honor to award our highest honor of the year, the Barry E. Little Community Anchor Award for 2019 to Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Director Vic Reynolds, who embodies everything that this award stands for.


The inspiration for this award is Barry E. Little of the Cobb County Police Department. In honor of Major Little’s service to the community, the West Cobb Business Association resolved in 2018 that the West Cobb Business Association would annually award the Barry E. Little Community Anchor Award to public servants who have aided in the strength, stability, security, and support of the community throughout their years of service to the community.


Thank you to all of our first responders and public safety heroes as they work tirelessly to protect and serve the citizens of our great community. May God bless them and keep them safe.


Thank you to our event photographers:

Thank you #CateredSouthernEvents AND #LostMountainBaptistChurch


A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to #K.MikeWhittleUniqueFloralDesigns for making the event a true GALA!
