All proceeds from the RVA Sports Awards show will benefit the Richmond Region Tourism (RRT) Foundation’s Sports Tourism Grant Program Presented by Richmond Association of Realtors. 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.
Also starting this year, the RVA Sports Awards Scholarship Program will award two 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.
