Friends of the WPPBF







Join us for the 4th Annual ‘Night In Blue’ — an annual event hosted by the WPPBF and sponsors.

During this night, we pay tribute to the brothers and sisters who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to others. Additionally, we recognize acts of valor and bravery and the sacrifices made by our families supporting us and what we do.

Tickets are available now and can be purchased in advance — both online and through executive board members of the WPPBF. If you have questions, you can email your questions to any one of our board members. You can find the list of our board members by clicking here.

‘A Night in Blue’ is open to all — both law enforcement and civilian / anyone whishing to join us for the evening. This is a great night for a fabulous group of men and women who put their lives on the line everyday. We hope you’ll join us for this night of great food and fantastic company as we salute our officers from all over Western Pennsylvania!
