MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Montie Hicks of BB&T, Chris Colbert of United Bank and Selwyn Persad of City Hospital were named co-chairmen of the West Virginia University Hospitals-East 2013 Bernie Hutzler Golf Classic.

The annual golf classic, which benefits City Hospital in Martinsburg and Jefferson Memorial Hospital in Ranson, W.Va., will be Monday, June 3, at Cress Creek Country Club in Shepherdstown, W.Va.

This year marks the 26th year for the tournament, which was established in 1988 as a fundraiser and “friend” raiser for City Hospital. Named in memory of WVUH-East charter board director Dr. James “Bernie” Hutzler, the tournament was expanded in 2010 to benefit both WVUH-East hospitals.

The tournament will feature two flights, with shotgun starts at 7:45 a.m. and 1 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 Cress Creek.

As in the past, money raised from the golf fundraiser will be used to purchase patient-care equipment for City Hospital and Jefferson Memorial Hospital. This year’s goal is $60,000. To date, more than $1.25 million in proceeds has been raised through past golf tournaments.

Sponsorship levels include the $5,000 presenting, $2,500 underwriting, $1,000 sponsor, $500 patron and $200 golfer. A portion of the sponsorship and golfer packages is tax-deductible.
