LBC Referral Program

LBC Referral Program

Welcome to LBC’s Referral Program!

We believe the best way to strengthen Baltimore County and build LBC’s invaluable network is to include you, the community and LBC alumni, in referring the best candidates. And, we are making it worth your while to participate. For each eligible referral you make, you will be entered into a drawing to win the big prize. This is a win-win-win proposition – the more excellent candidates LBC accepts into its program, the better for Baltimore County, LBC and you!

What will this year’s big prize be? Stay tuned to find out! Announcement coming soon. Meanwhile, nominate away for the Class of 2022 which will run from September 2021 – June 2022. Every eligible nominee will provide you with a chance to win the big prize. Just in case you didn’t know, the inaugural prize was a memorable and delectable dinner for two at the renowned Citron, an upscale contemporary restaurant with exquisite views of Quarry Lake, followed by a romantic night’s stay at the Gramercy Mansion, an intimate, award-winning estate that is nestled in the bucolic hills of the Greenspring Valley.
