Wilkins Family Charitable Foundation hosts Fifth Annual Golf Tournament to benefit Alzheimer’s Disease Research.

August 14, 2015

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
