The Baltimore Orioles honored Miles & Stockbridge Chairman Emeritus John Frisch and the Visit Baltimore Education and Training Foundation with its Birdland Heroes Award during an in-game ceremony at the conclusion of the fifth inning at the Orioles game on Friday, June 15, 2018. Frisch and the Foundation were 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.
