TYSONS CORNER, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cardinal Bank (NASDAQ: CFNL) announced today that its annual Charity Classic has reached a major milestone bringing its fundraising total to more than $5,015,000. Held on Monday, June 8, the funds raised from the 2015 tournament will be used to continue Cardinal’s longtime partnership with Inova Kellar Center, while also supporting the missions of many community-enriching organizations and outreach programs through the Cardinal Community Fund.
“The Cardinal Classic represents one of the many ways in which Cardinal gives back to our communities, and continues to be strongly supported by our clients, business partners and community friends,” said Kevin Reynolds, Cardinal Bank President. “Our mission is to be an enriching influence in the communities we serve in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. This year our evening program, again, focused on the devastating effects of mental health issues among our region’s youth. It is only through the efforts and support provided by programs like Inova Kellar that we can attempt to support troubled students at critical times, to turn their feelings of hopelessness into an opportunity for a hopeful future. We are honored to report the 2015 Cardinal Classic, reached the $5 million dollar fundraising mark, and truly grateful for the generosity of our community friends who believe in the importance of what we do.”
Collectively, over 500 volunteers, donors, business partners and players participated in the annual event held at the Country Club of Fairfax, reflecting the Classic’s long-standing reputation for contributing to healthy communities throughout the region.
“Cardinal Bank and Inova Kellar Center are a classic example of the benefits that can be achieved through a successful public-private partnership. Working together, we improve the lives of youth and their families in our community,” said Rick Leichtweis, Ph.D., Executive Director of Inova Kellar Center. “Through our partnership, Inova Kellar has been able to expand our service capabilities to accommodate the growing need for our services, and can continue to ensure access to Inova Kellar for those without the financial resources to obtain this caliber of care. We are deeply grateful for Cardinal Bank’s continued support, and the leadership of Bernard Clineburg and Kevin Reynolds, in helping us provide services to children and families in need.”
