The University of North Texas Health Science Center Golf Club donated almost $2,500 to the North Central Texas Chapter of the Alzheimerâ??s Association.

The club sponsored a Golf Scramble on April 23 that brought in $7,825. After expenses were deducted, the club donated two-thirds of the proceeds, $2,402.12 to the North Central Texas Chapter of the Alzheimerâ??s Association. The remaining one-third of the proceeds went to the UNTHSC Golf Club.

â??We were very pleased with this event,â? said UNTHSC Golf Club president Jason Fisher. â??We had hoped to have about 75 golfers, and we had 80, so we were able to raise more money than we had anticipated.â?

The winning team members for the event were Tommy Land, Tony Trevino, Matt Newton and Kevin McCarthy.

The event was sponsored by American Express Financial Advisors, Family Center Medical Group (R. Todd Richwine, DO), JS&H Orthopedic Supply, Oak Hollow Alzheimer Special Care Center, Amica Insurance, EzBayer, Wells Fargo Bank, Barton House, Dallas Family Medicine (Paul S. Worrell, DO), Cousinâ??s BBQ, Golf Etc., the UNTHSC Medical Student Government Association, and the UNTHSC Golf Club, which donated $500 extra to help cover expenses so more funds could go to the Alzheimerâ??s Association, Fisher said.

Fisher, who is a second year medical student at the health science center, wanted to host the event this year to raise awareness for Alzheimerâ??s disease.

â??Iâ??ve had a few family members who have succumbed to the disease already,â? Fisher said. â??Itâ??s very sad. So we wanted to raise awareness and donate some money to a very good cause.â?
