EagleBank, a subsidiary of Eagle Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE:EGBN), raised more than $266,000 at the EagleBank Foundation Fight Breast Cancer Golf Classic on Oct. 11 at the Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Md.
The annual golf tournament has raised more than $915,000 since its first date in 2005.
Proceeds will be used in several D.C. and Maryland-area hospitals such at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and The George Washington University Cancer Institute.
Donald R. Rogers, a director of EagleBank and the Chairman of the EagleBank Foundation said, "We are again proud of our 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. Because of the tremendous generosity and support of our sponsors, players, contributors and volunteers, we are proud to provide this much-needed funding for breast cancer programs and services at these well-deserving local hospitals and organizations. Once again, it is unbelievable that we 'over-sold' this event during these still challenging 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 was truly an honor working with so many wonderful, dedicated people with the same commitment and focus."
