Mid Penn Bank today announced it raised $200,000 for the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through the fifth annual Mid Penn Bank Celebrity Golf Tournament for Charity.

The event included a Celebrity Shoot-Out at Hershey Country Club on the afternoon of July 10, followed by a Pairings Party at The Hershey Lodge that evening. The golf tournament, hosting 160 golfers, was held at the Hershey Country Club on July 11. Sports celebrity guests who were in attendance included former and current NFL players such as Ron Jaworski, Mike Quick, Merril Hoge, Seth Joyner, Andre Reed, Michael Vick, DeAngelo Hall, Jason Kelce, Kurt Coleman and more.

The $200,000 donation was announced at the Pairings Party. The bank provided $100,000 to the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition, a statewide nonprofit designed to extend public awareness of breast cancer, and to encourage increased public and private funding for research, legislative advocacy, and high-quality screening, diagnosis and treatment. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S., also received $100,000 from the bank.

“Over 40,000 women lose their battle with breast cancer each year in the United States,” said Mid Penn Bank President and CEO Rory G. Ritrievi. “On behalf of those unfortunate mothers, sisters, friends and daughters, we are proud to host an event that raises money to hopefully someday stop this horrible disease. Thank you to our sponsors, celebrity guests, employees and many others who made this two-day golf tournament an incredible success and who are helping us to find a cure so our daughters do not have to.”
