BALTIMORE (Oct. 1, 2013) - In support of education, culture and the arts, BGE presented $20,000 to the Harford Community College Foundation, Inc. Family Performance Season Series at the Harford Community College (HCC) in the Chesapeake Center Theater on Monday, Sept. 30, 2013. Many HCC students were in attendance as John Borkoski, BGE vice president of engineering and project management and also a HCC Foundation board member, presented the check to HCC President Dr. Dennis Golladay.

“BGE has a long-standing commitment to enhancing the communities we serve,” said Borkoski. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to boost the educational and cultural offerings of the Harford Community College and Family Performance series and look forward to a great season of events that people of all ages can enjoy.”
“BGE’s generosity will enable the College to underwrite a variety of shows to enhance the cultural events offerings available to the Harford, Cecil and Baltimore communities and enhance our ability to feature nationally and internationally renowned artists,” said Susan Nicolaides, director of cultural events and performing arts at Harford Community College.

Since its founding nearly 200 years ago, BGE has played an integral role in working with Maryland communities to address economic development, public safety, civic issues and other initiatives that help enhance our neighborhoods. Through the use of shareholder dollars, BGE supports programs that deliver measurable and sustainable impact in areas of education, economic development, environment and arts and culture.

BGE’s corporate citizenship aligns with that of its parent company, Exelon Corporation. As part of Exelon’s merger in March 2012, Exelon and its subsidiaries have committed to maintain charitable giving of an average of $7 million per year in Maryland, including BGE’s service area, for the next 10 years.
