Mid Penn Bank, a subsidiary of Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: MPB), and the Penn State Urology Group recently completed their fifth annual “No Shave November” campaign and raised $100,000 for the Division of Urology at Penn State Cancer Institute. The campaign, which supports prostate cancer research, rallied financial support from employees and partners of both organizations during the month of November. It also encouraged men to take a break from shaving and grow beards as a way of starting conversations around prostate health.
All donations received benefit the prostate cancer research performed by Jay D. Raman, M.D., Chief of the Division of Urology at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.
“Since 2016, Mid Penn Bank and Penn State Cancer Institute have joined forces during the month of November to raise funds for prostate cancer research to help fight this formidable disease that affects one in nine men,” said Mid Penn Bank President and CEO Rory G. Ritrievi. “We are proud of our partnership and its contribution to the groundbreaking research being performed by Dr. Raman and his team.”
This year, business and organizations throughout the community stepped forward to promote awareness and help with the fundraising. Joining the No Shave November campaign as Community Partners in 2020 were: Cornerstone Coffeehouse in Camp Hill; Al’s of Hampden/Pizza Boy Brewing Co. in Enola; the Tower Porter Improvement Organization in Tower City; and Halifax VFW Post 5750. “Our community partners made a huge impact as a part of our No Shave November campaign,” said Ritrievi. “We are grateful for their willingness to jump on board with this cause and we appreciate their generosity.”
