Thirteenth Annual EagleBank Foundation Fight Against Breast Cancer Golf and Tennis Classic Raised Over $430,000

Thirteen Year Total Exceeds $3.5 Million

Company Release - 11/20/2017 6:00 AM ET

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The thirteenth annual EagleBank Foundation Fight Against Breast Cancer Golf and Tennis Classic, held on October 9, 2017, at the Woodmont Country Club, raised over $430,000—the Foundation’s most successful fundraiser yet.  Proceeds from this event continue to support research and outreach programs through partnerships with the following local hospitals and organizations: Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and Suburban Hospital in Montgomery County, MD, Providence Hospital and Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, and Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, VA.  Other beneficiaries include The Children’s Inn at The National Institutes of Health, the Primary Care Coalition of Montgomery County, Lolly’s Locks, Hope Connections for Cancer Support, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the BREM Foundation. 

Since the first golf tournament in 2005, the Foundation has raised over $3.5 million for the benefit of local area hospitals and organizations in their fight against breast cancer.  These funds have enabled local hospitals and other cancer-focused organizations in our community to continue ongoing research and provide support services—all dedicated to eradicating breast cancer.

“We are delighted that the 2017 Golf and Tennis Tournament was our most successful event yet, raising over $430,000 to assist in the fight against breast cancer,” commented Don Rogers (of Shulman Rogers), Chairman of the EagleBank Foundation and a member of EagleBank’s Board of Directors.  “The generous support from friends and colleagues enables us to financially assist many cancer-related organizations in our community that make life a little easier for breast cancer survivors and their families.”

“Raising public awareness for breast cancer is so critical, since women are diagnosed each day with the disease,” commented EagleBank’s Chairman and CEO Ron Paul.  “As a local, community business bank and an involved corporate citizen, raising funds to help the many worthy cancer treatment and research facilities in our community has become an important mission and major focus of the EagleBank Foundation.  Our successful annual golf and tennis tournament has provided a great way to give back to our community.  It could not happen without the generous donations from countless individuals and local corporations, and the time and hard work of many dedicated volunteers over the past 13 years.  We sincerely thank everyone who has helped create awareness, encouraged early detection that saves lives, and made it possible for us to support worthy organizations who provide ongoing research, care, and treatment for those fighting breast cancer.”
