Washington, D.C. — United Bank announced today that the 16th Annual United Bank Charity Classic raised over $200,000, bringing its 16-year fundraising total to over $5,800,000. The golf tournament supports Inova Kellar Center, the only nonprofit comprehensive mental health center for children in Northern Virginia. Funds also benefit nonprofit initiatives in the areas of children, education, healthcare, affordable housing, economic vitality and financial literacy through the United Bank Community Fund.

“United Bank and its employees are passionate about improving the lives of our customers and ensuring the health of our local communities,” said United Bank President Mike Fitzgerald. “We are inspired by the life-changing work of Inova Kellar Center and are proud to contribute to their continued impact through the United Bank Charity Classic.”

“Partnerships such as the United Bank Charity Classic move communities toward better outcomes for children, regardless of socio-economic status,” said Rick Leichtweis, Ph.D., executive director of Inova Kellar Center. “Thanks to the generosity of United Bank and the event’s supporters, we can better accommodate the growing need for our services throughout Northern Virginia and ensure that families have access to a high level of care, especially when lacking the necessary financial resources.”

Collectively, over 500 volunteers, donors and business partners participated in the annual event at the Country Club of Fairfax, including the tournament’s honorary chairman, Todd Stottlemyer, CEO of CNSI and former CEO of the Inova Center for Personalized Health, which includes the Inova Schar Cancer Institute and the Inova Translational Medicine Institute.
