PITTSBURGH―D.B. Root & Company, one of Western Pennsylvania’s largest independent wealth management and financial planning firms, continued their mission of giving back to the community through their annual Charity Golf Outing at Longue Vue Club in Verona Pennsylvania on Monday, October 3rd. The outing was attended by D.B. Root clients, sponsors and partners of the firm. Through tournament fees, sponsorships and prize auctions, D. B. Root & Company raised a total of $33,194 for The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
This represents a new high for the annual event in terms of funds raised. The figure is even more significant when factoring in that for every dollar raised, the Food Bank can provide five times that amount in terms of meals. That means the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is now able to provide more than 150,000 meals to hungry families throughout Western Pennsylvania. The event included a charity auction as well as skills competition for golfers to raise additional funds.
David Root, CEO of D.B. Root & Company stated, “Our entire staff as well as several clients and network partners of the firm participated and contributed to the event. We are very proud to have come together to achieve such results for this noble and worthy cause. The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank continues to represent hope for so many in our region. We are happy to play a small part in their mission.”
This year’s event represented the third consecutive year that D.B. Root partnered with The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for their annual Charity Golf Outing.
D.B. Root Financial Advisor and event organizer Jeremy Suschak summed it up this way: “Each year I’m so impressed with the response and turnout for our outing, but the support we received this year was incredible. The generosity of our sponsors, donors and golfers helps the Food Bank’s vision of ending hunger in southwestern PA and we’re so proud to support such a worthy cause.”
The event also furthers D.B. Root & Company’s mission to give back to the community where its employees live and work.
