Frisch and the Foundation will be honored for inspiring others through a spirited commitment to charity, service, hope and harmony.

Frisch, who is chairman of Visit Baltimore, was instrumental in creating the Foundation to help strengthen and grow Baltimore’s tourism industry. The Foundation delivers academic, professional development and capacity building scholarship and grant making programs; and supports workforce development for Baltimore’s hospitality and tourism industry with a focus on Baltimore’s young people and traditionally underserved residents. Frisch served as the inaugural board chair four years ago and is currently the board secretary.
