Hacking for Hope

Yazoo not only cares about our own employees, but also about the communities where we all live and work.  Through our sponsorship of local community organizations and charities, Yazoo and its employees are making a difference in people’s lives, neighborhoods and communities across central Pennsylvania.

On May 31, 2014, Flatbush Golf Course hosted 120 golfers and volunteers for the 2014 Hacking for Hope Golf Tournament.  The family of Kurt Riser said “Thank you, Yazoo Mills, for your contribution to the 2014 Hacking for Hope Golf Tournament.  The proceeds from this year’s event, in the amount of $14,200, will be donated to Kurt Riser’s medical bills.  Currently, Kurt travels to Foxchase Cancer Center in Philadelphia every two weeks to receive treatments for his Esophageal Cancer.”
