LEWISBURG – Celebrity Service Night at Applebee’s in Lewisburg was a huge success last week, with $7,500 raised for Camp Cadet. Trooper Matt Burrows says the amount raised is up from last year and they had a great turnout with many generous tips.

The next fundraiser for Camp Cadet is coming up in May. Burrows said, “That will be our 9th annual 5K race at the Lewisburg prison on May 11th.”Burrows says you can visit their website for more race details at www.svlecc.com.
