Clubs were swinging at the fifth annual Horschel Nunweiler Memorial Golf Event, held on June 18 at the Gowanda Country Club. Horschel Brothers’ Precision runs the event, which is sponsored by the business’s vendors and customers and, starting this year, the Nunweiler family and friends.

Previously named the Horschel Charity Golf Event, the tournament began in memory of Nancy Horschel, mother of Louis and Karl Horschel, owners of Horschel Brothers’ Precision. Nancy Horschel passed away in August 1987 at the age of 51 to breast cancer.

This year, the event was renamed in honor of Paul Michael Nunweiler, who passed away in February at the age of 24 from his year-and-a half-long battle with cancer.

This year, it raised a total of $26,800, split between three charities. The Boys & Girls Club of Springville received $10,000, $10,000 went to Roswell Park Cancer Institute and $6,800 was donated to Wings Flights of Hope.

The Wings Flights of Hope donation was originally slated for $2,000 but the winners of five monetary contests donated their winnings back to the event, which enabled the Nunweiler and Horschel families to increase the donations.

The five monetary contests that raised the bulk of the donated funds included a 50/50 raffle, a double up raffle, putting contest, gross skins and a beat the pro contest, in which contestants had to tee off against Louis Horschel and Paul Syracuse. The winner was entered into a random drawing.

This year’s event was attended by 127 golfers, the most participants the tournament has ever seen.
