Penn Foundation Receives $2,500 from Erie Insurance thanks to Lacher and Associates

(Sellersville, PA) – Penn Foundation received a $2,500 from Erie Insurance thanks to a nomination from Lacher and Associates through the Giving Network Agency of the Year Award. Penn Foundation provides behavioral health services to 10,000 people each year, with a tradition of compassionate care that combines a strong belief in the healing power of hope and the possibility of recovery.

Lacher & Associates won the 2010 Giving Network Agency of the Year Award, which recognizes independent insurance agencies who generously give their time and are deeply involved in the community. As part of that campaign, Lacher & Associates nominated Penn Foundation for the $2,500 charitable donation from Erie Insurance, and their nomination was made in honor of Penn Foundation’s former president and CEO John Goshow. The award presentation was held at Bear Creek Resort in Macungie, PA on May 26, 2011.

“Penn Foundation is able to provide the innovative and compassionate care we do because of the caring community that supports our work,” says Wayne Mugrauer, Penn Foundation President and CEO. “We are very grateful to Lacher and Associates for nominating us and to Erie Insurance for this generous gift.“


“Erie Insurance created The Giving Network Agency of the Year Award to recognize independent insurance agencies that demonstrate extraordinary community involvement efforts,” says Suzanne Reigel, Erie Insurance Group’s District Sales Manager. “For two generations, Lacher & Associates employees and family members have given generously of their time and efforts to various religious, youth, family outreach and community revitalization programs. It is both an honor to publicly recognize such a deserving agency and an honor to be represented by them.”


For 56 years, Penn Foundation has been providing individuals of all ages with innovative behavioral healthcare. Our tradition of compassionate care combined with a strong belief in the healing power of hope and the possibility of recovery has enabled us to help our clients navigate their lives with confidence, conviction, and courage.
