Previdi Award from the Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce, the Good Scout Award from the Connecticut Yankee Council of the Boy Scouts of America, the Robert S. Young Humanitarian Award from Ability Au- beyond that, the Spirit of Humanity Award from Regional Hospice and Palliative Care, the Community Leadership Award from Regional Hospice & Palliative Care, the Extraordinary Friendship and Support Award from the Association of Religious Communities and the Good Samaritan Award from Maison AMOS.

WCSU Foundation President Cory Plock said, “George Mulvaney is a successful entrepreneur who benefits the community in countless ways. He is a great inspiration to anyone, including WCSU students, who wants to make a difference. That’s what makes him a wonderful winner.
