CUMBERLAND — First United Bank & Trust recently supported several fundraising events to benefit the Western Maryland Health System Schwab Family Cancer Center Patient Assistance Fund.
Sally Horn, relationship adviser at First United, served as fundraising coordinator. A cancer survivor, Horn was driven by her personal desire to give back and pay forward in gratitude to those who provided quality, compassionate care to her during her illness.
A total of $2,469 was raised through a bank-wide casual day and a special “Love Your Community” event at First United’s Harrison Street location that featured hot dogs and beverages for the public at large. A horseshoe tournament was held at Shooters Bar & Grill, which included basket raffles, an auction and a 50/50 drawing.
The Schwab Family Cancer Center Patient Assistance Fund serves area cancer patients who experience financial challenges in paying for their basic needs while fighting a life-threatening illness.
