More than 92 golfers and over 60 sponsors took part in the Susser Bank Golf Classic, benefiting The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center on May 6 at the PGA Frisco Fields Ranch Golf Course. The incredible turnout resulted in raising more than $180,000 to support the institution’s mission to end cancer. 100% of the costs of the event were underwritten by Susser Bank and the Susser family.

The tournament serves as an opportunity to unite the community for a day of golf while contributing to a meaningful cause. The evening before the tournament, Catherine and Sam L. Susser, Chairman and CEO of Susser Bank, extended their gratitude to the participants at a dinner held at their family home. Their words of appreciation echoed the sentiment of hope for a future free of cancer, made possible through the support of dedicated sponsors. Dr. Peter Pisters, President of MD Anderson, was the keynote speaker and his remarks about recent developments to end cancer were truly inspiring.

“MD Anderson is one of the world’s most respected centers devoted to eradicating cancer and serving patients battling this horrible disease,” said Susser. “Chances are, each of you has a personal stake in the fight against cancer. When I reflect on our family’s own experience walking alongside loved ones with the disease, I cannot fathom a world without MD Anderson and its exceptional caregivers, researchers and lifesaving technologies. Our family believes it is essential to invest in research and clinical trials with the goal of ending cancer, and there is no institution that is more impactful at this fight than MD Anderson.” Susser continued, “Thank you to the many clients, bankers, directors, shareholders and volunteers who came together to make these two days of events both impactful and memorable.”
