The 18th annual Conrad W. Raker Sporting Clays Invitational will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, May 11, at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays, 2750 Limestone Avenue, Coplay. The tournament benefits Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network’s Conrad W. Raker Endowment Fund, which is used to provide educational programs for Good Shepherd employees. About 150 people are expected to participate in the 100 rounds of sporting clays shooting.
The Sporting Clays Invitational and the endowment fund honor the lasting legacy of The Rev. Dr. Conrad W. 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 network.
