Thank you to All BRAVO Participants and Sponsors

Bellflower honored the community's first responders, public safety personnel, and local citizens for extraordinary acts of heroism and outstanding service at the City of Bellflower’s BRAVO Awards ceremony and luncheon held Thursday, April 27, 2023. The event was held at The Mayne Events Center located atop the Los Angeles County Fire Museum at 16400 Bellflower Blvd.

Matt Iseman,  perhaps best known as the cohost of the four-time Emmy nominated American Ninja Warrior, served as keynote speaker.  On American Ninja Warrior, Iseman blends the macho energy of sports announcer with nice-guy charisma and genuine enthusiasm for the competitors. “I love celebrating people who do exceptional things,” said Iseman, who has served as the show’s lead host since 2010. He also hosted the most recent spinoff, American Ninja Warrior Junior, on Peacock as well as the earlier spinoff, ANW: Ninja vs Ninja on the USA Network. In addition to his work on the American Ninja Warrior franchise, he hosted Live Rescue on A&E following the everyday heroics of First Responders, and makes regular appearances on the Kelly Clarkson Show. 

“We are honored to welcome Matt Iseman to speak at our upcoming 27th annual BRAVO Awards ceremony. Iseman’s positive outlook and infectious optimism exemplify the spirit of the BRAVO awards and we anticipate an inspiring message from him. We look forward to his visit to the City of Bellflower as we pay tribute to our local community heroes,” said Mayor Sonny R. Santa Ines.  

The BRAVO Awards ceremony is funded through sponsorships from area businesses and individuals and represents one of the City of           Bellflower’s most prestigious honors.  For more info about the program call (562) 804-1424 ext. 2267.
