About the RVA Sports Awards

Benefitting the RRT Sports Tourism Grant Program

RRT Foundation bumpThe third annual RVA Sports Awards show Presented by Colonial Downs® & Rosie’s Gaming Emporium® was held February 3, 2024 at Altria Theater and was hosted by CBS Sports Director, Lane Casadonte, and Kelli Lemon.

All proceeds from the RVA Sports Awards benefits the Richmond Region Tourism (RRT) Foundation’s Sports Tourism Grant Program. This program awards annual grants to local sports organizations to nurture the development of new events and expand the promotion of existing events – thereby attracting visitors from outside the Richmond region.

The Richmond Region Tourism Foundation’s mission is to advance the impact and benefit of tourism on the Richmond Region by supporting and investing in local education, diversity and inclusion and sports tourism programs.

The RVA Sports Awards Scholarship Program also awards scholarships annually to a student in Virginia State University’s Sports and Hospitality Management Program, and in the Center for Sport Leadership at Virginia Commonwealth University.
