Mid Penn Bank (the “Bank”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. (“Mid Penn”) (Nasdaq: MPB), and Penn State Health recently completed their eighth annual “No Shave November” campaign and raised a record $341,000 for the Department of Urology at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. All donations benefit prostate cancer research, screening, and outreach performed by the department, which is led by Jay D. Raman, M.D.

“Since 2016, Mid Penn Bank and Penn State Health have teamed up during the month of November to raise funds for prostate cancer research to help fight this formidable disease that affects one in eight men,” Mid Penn Bank President and CEO Rory G. Ritrievi said. “The campaign has grown exponentially, and we couldn’t be more proud of its contribution to the groundbreaking research being performed by my dear friend, Dr. Raman, and his incredible team of physicians.”

Employees of the Bank and Penn State Health grew their beards during November in an effort to encourage conversations about prostate cancer and the campaign. This year, 23 businesses and organizations throughout the Bank’s footprint joined the campaign to promote awareness and to help with fundraising. Community organizations created “No Shave November”-themed products and donated a portion of the sales to the campaign, contributing more than $23,000 to this year’s total.

“Our community partners made a huge impact on our ‘No Shave November’ total this year,” Ritrievi said. “Knowing that the important work done by Dr. Raman and his team directly benefits the folks in our communities, we are truly grateful for their support and generosity.”

Since its inception, the campaign has contributed more than $950,000 to fund prostate cancer research and care by rallying financial support from employees and partners of both organizations during the month of November. To honor the Bank’s commitment to raising $1.1 million by 2026, Penn State Health recently named the second-floor outpatient clinic at Penn State Cancer Institute the Mid Penn Bank Outpatient Clinic.
