A simple ‘like’ on the Al Shank Insurance facebook page will raise funds for Redskin athletics.
Shank, a former Redskin who played in the 1972 state championship game, is challenging Redskin fans to ‘like’ his page, and in turn, he will donate $1 for every new like during the month of September, which begins Monday.
As of press time, Shank had 247 likes.
He will match up to $1,000 for every new ‘like.’
“I’m a graduate of LHS and will never forget the great support our teams got in the 1970s when I was going through LHS,” Shank said. “At Al Shank Insurance we love Redskin sports and are happy to ask Redskin fans to share their love too by going to our Facebook page and taking part in our Facebook Challenge. It doesn’t cost fans a dime, but fans get to tell ASI how much money to spend to help a worthy cause we all love. I fully anticipate we will donate the full $1,000. Redskin fans are great fans. “
To help Shank spend $1,000 with the Redskins, go to Facebook, search for Al Shank Insurance, and click the ‘like’ button.
