Bath, New York: The Wilkins Family Charitable Foundation (WFCF) held its Fifth Annual
Charity Golf Tournament at the Bath Country Club in Bath, New York on August 6th. The
annual event was created in 2011 with proceeds benefiting Alzheimer’s Disease Research.
One-hundred forty golfers and over one-hundred sponsors and donors showed support of the
event helping to raise approximately $54,000 and bringing its five year total to over $180,000.
“In 2013, we partnered with the University of Rochester’s Medical Center to create the Patricia
Wilkins Alzheimer’s Research Fund”, stated Brian Wilkins, who along with his father and two
brothers created the Wilkins Family Charitable Foundation to help his mother, Patricia Wilkins,
raise awareness and funds to help fight the disease she became victim to in 2007, and
eventually lost her life to in 2013. “Through this fund, we have pledged $150,000 over three
years to support Alzheimer related programs within their Neurology department. The URMC
has a great program and a dedicated staff that is driven to find a cure for this disease, and we
are proud to be working with them. The proceeds for this year’s tournament will go towards
helping to fulfill this pledge.”
Major sponsors for the event included Bank of the West, Heartland RV LLC, Forest River, Inc.,
Cargill Nutrition, Halco Plumbing & Heating, Blue-Ox Corporation, Brown & Brown Insurance,
Lippert Components, Halleron Financial Group, Simmons-Rockwell Auto Group, Horizon
Transport and Alleghany Mountain Resort.
“We are truly humbled by the amazing support that this event has generated. We want to thank
all of the golfers and all of our sponsors. Without their support, none of this would be possible.”
Next year’s 6th annual tournament has been scheduled for Thursday, August 4th. To inquire
