MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Brian Romine of Price Romine, PLLC, and Dan Sytsma of WVU Medicine Jefferson Medical Center have been named co-chairs for the 2016 University Healthcare Foundation Bernie Hutzler Golf Classic.  

The annual golf classic, which benefits Berkeley Medical Center in Martinsburg and Jefferson Medical Center in Ranson, will be held on Monday, June 6 at The Woods in Hedgesville. More than $1.45 million in proceeds has been raised for both hospitals as a result of past golf tournaments.

This year marks the 29th year for the tournament, which was established in 1988 as a fundraiser and friend raiser for Berkeley Medical Center. Named in memory of University Healthcare Charter Board Director James “Bernie” Hutzler, D.D.S., the tournament was expanded in 2010 to benefit both University Healthcare medical centers.   

Proceeds from this year’s golf classic will be used to purchase two powerlift stretchers for the WVU Medicine ambulances that provide ground transportation for patients in the Eastern Panhandle. Funds will also be used to purchase telemedicine equipment for Jefferson Medical Center and Berkeley Medical Center.

The 2016 Bernie Hutzler Golf Classic will feature two flights with shotgun starts at 7:15 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Registration will begin 30 minutes prior to the start of each flight. Flight preference will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Golfers may form their own teams but will be subject to handicap restrictions as determined by the Golf Pro at The Woods.

Sponsorship levels include the $5,000 Presenting, $2,500 Underwriting, $1,000 Sponsor, $500 Patron, and $200 Golfer. An optional $20 Player’s Package is also available for purchase and includes a mulligan, forward tee, and one pro’s drive on #7. A portion of the sponsorship and golfer packages is tax deductible.
