"We are so grateful for the tremendous generosity of our sponsors, players, contributors and volunteers, who, year after year, have helped make this tournament such a success. Their participation has been crucial in helping us in accomplishing our fundraising goals. By providing this much-needed funding for research at these well-deserving local hospitals, we are hopeful that our efforts will play a role in the prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime."

"Raising public awareness for breast cancer is so critical, as more and more women each day are diagnosed with breast cancer," commented EagleBank's Chairman and CEO Ron Paul. "As a local, business bank, it
is extremely important to us to be good corporate citizens--it is part of our daily mission. Our golf tournament is one of the ways that we give back to our community. Because of the generous donations of
individuals and corporations for these past nine years--and the passion and hard work of our Committee members and everyone else involved in organizing this tournament--we have been able to raise substantial
funds to help fight the devastating effects that breast cancer has on all who are touched by it. We are thankful to everyone for their continued support of our efforts to save more lives and help with the fight against this disease."
