Round to Remember Golf outing benefiting Alzheimer’s Association set for June 2

The 7th annual a Round to Remember Golf Classic will be held Saturday, June 2 at the Connemara Golf Course in Nicholasville. This event is hosted by local golfer Paul Bimschleger and his children – Dave, Curt, and Chris Bimschleger. Since the creation of the event, the Bimschleger family has raised over $185,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of Paul’s wife, Patricia, who they lost to Alzheimer’s disease in 2011.

“The Bimschleger family became involved with the Alzheimer’s Association after our beloved mother passed away from Alzheimer’s after a seven-year battle with this debilitating disease,” said Dave Bimschleger. “In memory of our mother, our family decided to initiate a Round to Remember Golf Classic. Our mother enjoyed golf and our family’s mission is to raise funds to be used to continue research to find a cure and to support families currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. We hope to raise over $30,000 this year.”

“A Round to Remember is a heartwarming event that honors the legacy of Patricia Bimschleger and raises awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and its toll on families,” said DeeAnna Esslinger, Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana. “Paul and his family continue to be an important part of advancing our mission, and we are so grateful to them.”

Registration for the golf classic starts at 10:30 a.m. with lunch served at 11:30 a.m. The shotgun start will be at 12 p.m. Individual registration is $100 per player and includes favor bag, greens fee, and lunch at Connemara. Trophies for the top three teams, a new car at the Hole In One contest, silent auction and raffle prizes help round out the event.
