Mid Penn Bank announced it has contributed $75,000 to the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC). PBCC is a statewide nonprofit designed to extend public awareness of breast cancer and encourage increased public and private funding for research, legislative advocacy, high-quality screening, diagnosis and treatment.
“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 raise money to hopefully someday stop this horrible disease, so our daughters do not have to.”
“The PA Breast Cancer Coalition is extraordinarily grateful for the ongoing support of Mid Penn Bank and amazed beyond words at this incredible donation,” said Pat Halpin-Murphy, President & Founder, PA Breast Cancer Coalition. “Thank you, Rory and Mid Penn Bank, for believing in our mission, thank you for supporting survivors and families across PA and thank you for making a HUGE impact in the fight against breast cancer!”
In previous years, Mid Penn Bank has held its Celebrity Golf Tournament for Charity to raise funds to support breast cancer research and patient support. This year, the event did not occur in its normal form due to guidelines and recommendations for social gatherings amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Through the generosity of our celebrity friends and wonderful sponsors, we have made another meaningful dent in our goal of raising $1 million for breast cancer charities,” said Ritrievi. Since 2016, Mid Penn Bank has raised $450,000 for breast cancer, contributing to PBCC, the American Cancer Society and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Mid Penn Bank is strongly committed to supporting charitable organizations through various means, including corporate donations, employee volunteerism and fundraising. An independent community bank since 1868, Mid Penn regularly contributes to causes including health and human services, community improvement and education.
