The seventh annual EagleBank Foundation Fight Breast Cancer Golf Classic, held on October 10, 2011, at the Trump National Golf Club, raised over $350,000. Proceeds from this event were used to continue our support of research and outreach programs through our partnership with the following local hospitals and organizations: Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and Suburban Hospital in Montgomery County, MD, and Providence Hospital and Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC. Other beneficiaries were the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, The Children’s Inn at The National Institutes of Health, the Primary Care Coalition of Montgomery County and the Wellness Community.
Since the first golf tournament in 2005, the Foundation has raised over $1,200,000 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 putting an end to breast cancer.
“We are extremely proud of our ongoing efforts to raise funds to help those hospitals and organizations in our community who are on the front line doing all they can to win the battle against breast cancer,” commented Donald R. Rogers (of Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy & Ecker, P.A.), a director of EagleBank and the Chairman of the EagleBank Foundation. “Because of the continued generosity and support of our sponsors, players, contributors and volunteers, we are delighted to provide this much-needed funding for breast cancer programs and services at these well-deserving local hospitals and organizations. Once again, it is incredible that we “over-sold” this event during these still tough economic times. This is a testament to the passion and hard work of our Committee members and everyone else involved in organizing this event. It is truly an honor working with so many wonderful, dedicated people with the same commitment and focus,” he concluded.
