Horschel Brothers Precision, LLC held its fourth annual Horschel Brothers Charity Golf Tournament at the Gowanda Country Club on June 13 with proceeds donated to Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Springville Boys & Girls Club and the new Springville SkatePlex.

Kelli Smith, an executive assistant at Horschel Brothers and daughter of Louis Horschel, co-owner, said the golf outing is held in honor of her late grandfather, who passed away in 2007, and her grandmother, who died of breast cancer in 1987.

“When my grandpa died, we got to thinking of old times and thought that it would be really great to do something in my grandparents’ memory. We wanted to donate to cancer research, but Susan G. Komen is so big already, so we decided to give to somewhere closer to home,” Smith explained.

Horschel Brothers was able to donate $10,790 to Roswell, $10,600 to the Boys & Girls Club and an additional $2,500 to the SkatePlex.

In previous years, the organization has donated the proceeds to Freedom is Not Free, but officials decided to go in a different direction this year and give money to the SkatePlex fund instead. Originally, $10,000 was set to go to each Roswell and the Boys & Girls Club, but a pair of golfers came through with the extra funds.

Tony Staub, owner of Staub Machinery, won the “Beat the Pro” contest and donated his half of the $1,580 proceeds to Roswell. Lou Nalbone, owner of Chautauqua Aircraft won the 50/50 raffle and donated his half back to the Boys & Girls Club.

“We have a really amazing group of people who come to the event,” said Smith. “And we hope that they bring their generous friends back next year!”
