BALTIMORE, Oct. 17, 2012 – Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) <http://www.bge.com>  today announced that it sponsored the Howard Community College Educational Foundation Equestrian Grand Prix event.  Held at Marama Farm in Clarksville, Md., this annual event raises scholarship funds for Howard Community College students, while showcasing world-class equestrian showjumping.
