Washington, D.C. — United Bank announced today that the 17th Annual United Bank Charity Classic raised $187,000, bringing its 17-year fundraising total to over $6,000,000. The golf tournament provides funding for Inova Kellar Center, an outpatient treatment center providing mental health services, substance use disorder treatment and special education services for children and their families in the metro area. 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.

“A commitment to our community is at the heart of United’s culture, and it was inspiring to see so many employees and community partners come together to support the health of families in our area,” said United Bank President Mike Fitzgerald. “We are proud to advance the life-changing work of Inova Kellar Center, as well as the charitable organizations across our region supported through the United Bank Community Fund.”

“Partnerships such as the United Bank Charity Classic move communities toward better outcomes for children, regardless of socioeconomic status,” said Inova Kellar Center Senior Director Rick Leichtweis, Ph.D. “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 families have access to a high level of care, especially when lacking the necessary financial resources.”
