Cardinal Bank works hard to meet more than just the financial needs of the communities in which we serve. 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.
The Cardinal Classic is an annual golf tournament that benefits the Inova Kellar Center and the Cardinal Community Fund. Cardinal's mission is to be an enriching influence in the communities we serve in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. 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 2016 Cardinal Classic reached the $5.3 million dollar fundraising mark and are 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.
This year's tournament raised over $379,000 for local charities, bringing our 14-year fundraising total to more than $5.3 million. More than 200 golfers and 100 volunteers converged at the Country Club of Fairfax on June 27, 2016 to take part in the 2016 Cardinal Bank Charity Classic.
