Lykins Annual Charity Golf Outing sees most successful year

Rushville Republican

---- — Jon and Mark Lykins had their annual charity golf outing Aug. 17 at Antler Point Golf Club. A dinner for all following the event was held at the Rushville American Legion. Each year the host chooses an individual or family who has met with a health related hardship resulting in major medical bills. Proceeds from this year’s golf outing went to Tom Beatty and Mat Bates to help with medical expenses. Beatty was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Bates with Stage 5 Lupus Nephritis. Both are golfers who have supported the Lykins golf outing for the past 10 years.

This year’s proceeds were the largest the Lykins brothers ever raised. In addition to our proceeds, a former resident of Rush County, Pam (Dennis) Graber and her husband Randy donated a generous amount to help. The Graber’s own “Open Range RV Company,” in Shipshewanna. Presenting the donation was their employee and long-time Rush County resident David Holland and family.

The Lykins want to extend a thank you to all golf participants, Antler Point Golf Course, Wally McCane and staff, Lykins family members, all of the hole sponsors, many of our family and friends and the Graber’s for their generosity to help make our charity golf event a huge success. All of these people make Rushville a truly remarkable caring place to live and work.
