Conrad W. Raker Sporting Clays Invitational
Each May, Good Shepherd holds its Conrad W. Raker Sporting Clays Invitational at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays. Proceeds from the event benefit the Conrad W. Raker Educational Endowment, which is used to provide educational opportunities for Good Shepherd employees.
The Sporting Clays Invitational and the endowment fund honor the lasting legacy of the Rev. Dr. Conrad Raker, who dedicated his life to serving people with disabilities. He became administrator of Good Shepherd in 1941 and transformed an orphanage and “old folks home” into the region’s top rehabilitation center. His leadership and vision led to the construction of a rehabilitation hospital decades before they were common in this country.
