WHAT:            As he has done in previous years, Comptroller Peter Franchot will join hundreds of volunteers and community leaders of the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington (JFGW) at the Jewish Community Center in Rockville for their annual Super Sunday phone-a-thon. JFGW serves as the central fundraising, planning and leadership development organization for the Greater Washington area's organized Jewish community. In 2012, the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes in Rockville – one of JFGW's partner organizations -- received the Comptroller's William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award for their work to enhance the dignity, independence and community inclusion of individuals with disabilities, regardless of faith or creed.


                        The Comptroller then will head over to a landmark destination -- Bagel City -- to present a proclamation to owner George Kavadoy and his daughter, Stephanie, recognizing their bagel shop in the Pike Shopping Center for serving up fresh bagels, pastries and party platters for more than 35 years. It also serves a selection of homemade breads, hot and cold sandwiches, wraps, fresh salads and knishes. The business uses a bagel recipe with no preservatives that dates to 1883 from the Ukraine. Known for being family-friendly, Bagel City supports more than 60 charities annually.
