Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake hosted the 6th Annual Baltimore’s Top Neighborhood Dads luncheon at the Vollmer Center in Baltimore’s Cylburn Arboretum. Today’s luncheon honors twenty-five men who were nominated by people in their communities.

“It is an honor to host an annual celebration to ensure your hard work does not go unnoticed,” said Mayor Rawlings-Blake. “By doing what is right—mentoring young people, cleaning up after storms, helping older neighbors—you add to the quality of life in our growing city.”

The Baltimore’s Top Neighborhood Dads contest, which was founded in 2007 by then-Council President Rawlings-Blake, honors dedicated men in our communities who have given selflessly to keep Baltimore’s neighborhoods better, safer, and stronger. This year, nearly 50 men were nominated by their neighborhood associations for their efforts.

Radio host Harold Pompey served as the Master of Ceremonies for the event. The keynote address was delivered by Dr. Samuel Ross, Chief Executive Officer, Bon Secours Baltimore Health System.
