Albright Care Golf Challenge raises $146,553 for benevolent care

LEWISBURG — The 21st annual Albright Care Services Golf Challenge raised more than $146,000 for benevolent care. The Albright Care Services Golf Challenge took place at the Bucknell Golf Club.

Several golfers were honored with milestone fundraising plaques for their dedication to the Golf Challenge over the years. They included Stephen Foust, $100,000; Bob Kuhn and Rev. Keith Schmuck, who each raised $25,000; and Carl Schlappi, Rev. Bill Gibson, Fred Harris, Ray Bower, Chris Brown, Rev. Al Horst and Albright Care Services President and CEO Shaun Smith, who each raised $10,000.
