Brian Butler Memorial Golf Outing slated for Aug. 19


The 10th An­nu­al Bri­an T. But­ler Me­mori­al Golf Out­ing will take place on Aug. 19 at The Bucks Club at 2600 York Road in Jam­is­on. About 140 golfers are ex­pec­ted to par­ti­cip­ate, and an­oth­er 35 to 50 people will at­tend only the buf­fet lunch­eon.

The an­nu­al be­ne­fit hon­ors the memory of Bri­an But­ler, who at­ten­ded St. Martha’s Ele­ment­ary School and gradu­ated from Arch­bish­op Ry­an High School, and was an avid sports fan. He was killed at age 26 in a car ac­ci­dent on the Pennsylvania Turn­pike in April 2003.

Cost for the golf out­ing is $140 per golfer, and $45 for the lunch­eon only. Jaclynn Lukach, a fam­ily friend who is help­ing to or­gan­ize this year’s be­ne­fit, said over the years pro­ceeds from the golf out­ing have provided 19 full schol­ar­ships to stu­dents at St. Martha’s Ele­ment­ary School, funds to help build a new par­ish gym­nas­i­um and as­sist­ance in buy­ing equip­ment and uni­forms for the school’s CYO sports pro­grams.

In or­der to make this year’s char­it­able event as suc­cess­ful as pos­sible, Lukach said the golf out­ing could still use dona­tions. These could be money, door prizes such as gift cards gift bas­kets, or hole spon­sor­ship at $75/per hole.

A pub­lished list of all con­trib­ut­ors will be dis­played throughout the golf out­ing.

The Bri­an T. But­ler Me­mori­al Fund is a non-profit found­a­tion and dona­tions are tax de­duct­ible. For more in­form­a­tion, con­tact Lukach at (610) 551-3039 or More in­form­a­tion is also avail­able at www.bri­an­but­ler­
