The event -- officially the "Judge James Dailey Wahl Memorial Hoses, Handcuffs and Hardhats" to honor the group's longtime leader who died in 2016 -- also highlights notable work from police and firefighters.

This year at the dinner, awards will go to: Arnold Police Officer Ryan O'Connor, who was shot in the line of duty in 2017; St. Louis assistant chief and Lt. Col. Lawrence O'Toole; St. Louis County firefighter Sean Murray; and St. Louis firefighter and Deputy Chief Ken Smith.
