THE 2022 EASTERN CUP

THE EASTERN CUP is one of the most prestigious golf fundraising events in the region, hosted at the oldest private country club in the United States (1854) - The Philadelphia Cricket Club.

The Wissahickon course is ranked 30 in GolfWeeks Best Top 100 Classic Courses in the United States. The Militia Hill course is ranked 38 in the Top 100 Modern Golf Courses in the U.S. The PGA of America awarded the Philadelphia Cricket club the honor of hosting the 2015 Senior PGA Professional National Championship on both courses.

All sponsorships benefit the students at Eastern University.

Due to its popularity, this event has extremely limited space therefore your timely registration is recommended to secure your participation.

TUESDAY, MAY 31ST, 2022

The renowned Philadelphia Cricket Club is the only golf club in the country to have opened a golf course in each of the past three centuries. Participants of this year's Eastern Cup have the fortunate opportunity to play at two of these esteemed courses. Both the Wissahickon and Militia Hill courses have been recognized for their outstanding layouts and course conditions over the years.

 

GUEST SPEAKER
REV. DR. HERBERT H LUSK, II

Reverend Dr. Herbert H. Lusk, II was born in Memphis, Tennessee and was raised on the Monterey Peninsula in California from the age of 15 through his college years. Pastor Lusk was nationally known during his NFL career days as the “Praying Tailback” because of his custom of kneeling in the end zone after scoring touchdowns. Lusk committed himself to three years to the NFL and then left voluntarily, to study for the ministry.

 

Pastor Lusk graduated from Gwynedd Mercy College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Sociology, received a Masters of Divinity from the Reformed Episcopal Theological Seminary, an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity from Reformed Episcopal Theological Seminary, an Honorary Doctorate of Ministry degree from Westminster Theological Seminary, and an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Eastern University.

 

During his tenure as Pastor of Greater Exodus, Reverend Dr. Lusk has hosted governors, mayors, senators, congressmen, a Vice President of the United States and on two occasions, the President of the United States. Pastor Lusk served as an advisor to the President of the United States of America on Faith-Based Initiatives.

 

In addition he served as an advisor to the United Nations. Pastor Lusk has appeared on Nightline, Hardball, NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox News broadcast programs. He has received numerous awards, honors and citations. He currently serves as the Lead Chaplain for the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. His uniqueness to Philadelphia was described by Michael Callahan, Editor of the Philadelphia Magazine’s 2012 special edition, Why We Love Philadelphia, when he wrote – “In the storied legacy of the NFL, Herb Lusk will always be “The Praying Tailback,” the first pro football player to drop to one knee and offer celestial thanks after a score…” In 2015, Pastor Lusk spoke during Pope Francis’s historical visit to Philadelphia.

 

Pastor Lusk is married to his beloved wife, Vickey, with whom he has three children: Danuelle (Cedrick), Laiah (David), Herbert III; and three grandsons: David Judah, Israel Andrew, and Zion Paul.
