The University of North Texas Health Science Center Golf Club will take a swing at Alzheimerâ??s disease this year during the UNTHSC Golf Scramble on April 23.

The club will sponsor the scramble at the Pecan Valley â??River Courseâ? beginning with a shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. Registration will include 18-hole green fees, cart rental, warm-balls for the range, breakfast, an awards lunch, a goodie bag, a T-shirt, and the chance to win prizes from a variety of sponsors.

Two-thirds of the proceeds from the event will go to the North Central Texas Chapter of the Alzheimerâ??s Association, and the rest of the proceeds will go to the UNTHSC Golf Club. The event is also sponsored by American Express Financial Advisors, Family Center Medial Group, JS&H Orthopedic Supply, Oak Hollow Alzheimer Special Care Center, Amica Insurance, EzBayer, Wells Fargo Bank and Barton House. Sponsorships are still available for the event at the $200 and $400 levels.

The group is expecting at least 75 golfers for the event, said UNTHSC Golf Club president Jason Fisher. The registration deadline for the event is April 15. The cost to participate is $75. Players may sign up as a team or as individuals.

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 weâ??re trying to raise awareness and donate some money to a very good cause.â?
