NFL stars 'rally for recreation' on golf course

RICHMOND TWP., Pa. - Some NFL stars from Berks County are using their golf skills to help the community.

The Gilmore Henne Community Fund is hosting its annual "Rally for Recreation."

Wilson High School graduates Chad Henne and John Gilmore are among the big names golfing at the Berkleigh Golf Club in Richmond Township.

They're raising money to revitalize the Locust Street playground in Fleetwood.

"All the funds go right towards the park and we teamed up IM ABLE again this year," said Henne. "It's a disability where children with disabilities can play on the park."

"This event, we're going to net about $25,000 that will go directly for that project, so it's a pretty big deal for our organization. We really rely on these big fundraisers to fuel our organization," said Gilmore.

The foundation has revitalized several parks in Berks County since it first formed. Work on the Locust Street playground in Fleetwood is scheduled for next weekend.
