SBO started more than 35 years ago with five volunteers helping the Baltimore County Department of Aging distribute complimentary tickets.
Today more than 75 volunteers help to distribute tickets to over 600 member households. More than 100 sponsors make it possible for seniors 55 and older to enjoy theatre, concerts, museums, lectures and other events with two-for-one, reduced price, or complimentary tickets.
SBO is a volunteer program supported in part by the Baltimore County Department on Aging. It is open to all Maryland seniors 55 years or older. As long as one household member is 55, those accompanying the member to events do not have to be 55.
How It Works
SBO’s events brochure is published four times a year and emailed/mailed to SBO members along with request forms. You’ll find events offering complimentary tickets, tickets with a deep discount and two-for-one tickets to a large variety of venues.
Members fill out voucher requests and return them to SBO to be validated. SBO makes every effort to fulfill requests, and returns the requests to members. If your voucher is returned validated you are committed to attend the event. Then on the day of the event, you’ll simply take the voucher to the venue and enjoy yourself!
If you have questions or need help filling out the voucher request, please do not hesitate to call the office (Monday-Friday between 10 am and 2 pm).
Note: Applications, including the fillable PDF, must be mailed into Senior Box Office (address is on the application) along with your check.
You can also call SBO at 410-887-5399 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to have an application mailed to you.
