WHAT: Comptroller Franchot on Friday will present the first William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award for 2017 to George Mitchell in Baltimore City.

The William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award is presented by Comptroller Franchot to individuals and organizations in each county and Baltimore City who best exemplify the lifelong commitment to helping people that was a hallmark of the former governor, comptroller and mayor. Friday’s presentation occurs one day after what would have been Schaefer’s 96th birthday.
