ST. PAUL, MN—Brett Vander Bloemen, Senior Partner at North Star Resource Group, will host the 4th Annual Liz Vander Bloemen Charitable Golf Event on Monday, July 17th. The golf event will once again take place at Town & Country Club in St. Paul, MN. All proceeds will be directed towards Mayo Clinic’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.
Vander Bloemen first held the event in July 2014 in honor of his mother, Liz. After 6 years of valiantly battling the disease, Liz passed away in September 2014. In witnessing firsthand the emotional toll of the disease on both the individual diagnosed and their loved ones, Vander Bloemen decided to host the annual golf event to support Alzheimer’s research.
“It’s hard to believe it will be 3 years since her passing, I miss her so much! She was such an amazing Mom, such an amazing person. This is my way of honoring her.” - Vander Bloemen
The Scott Richards North Star Charitable Foundation, the charitable arm of North Star, will once again partner with Vander Bloemen in raising a goal of $100,000 for the event. The SRNSCF will match all proceeds for every dollar raised up to $50,000. For the past 3 years, Vander Bloemen has been successful in his efforts to raise $100,000 in collaboration with the SRNSCF and has contributed a total of $300,000 to Mayo Clinic’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.
This year’s event, held on Monday, July 17th, will begin with lunch at 11:00 AM with the tee off time immediately following at 12:30 PM. An auction dinner will close out the night, with all proceeds from the auction benefiting the cause as well.
Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and more than 5 million Americans are currently living with disease.1 Through the Liz Vander Bloemen Charitable Golf Event, Vander Bloemen is hoping to make a difference in the lives of those struggling and their loved ones.
