Win 4 Wesley Golf Tournament returns to Cameron Hills

Friday, on the grounds of Cameron Hills Golf Course, it was a celebration of courage. For the Berry Family, and over a hundred golfers, and the staff at Cameron Hills, the annual benefit is more than a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society—it’s celebration of life for 19-year-old Wesley Berry.

Standing alongside Berry, was his father Kevin, as he greeted golfers as they made their rounds. “He’s doing well at the moment,” Kevin said. “He had a scan this week, and it came back stable—everything is going in the right direction.”

Sports and golf aficionados from every part of the community were on hand to take part in the tournament. From EXIT Realty Expertise realtor Gary Butler to King George County Sheriff Steve Dempsey, the course was covered with the most respected leaders in the community.

The team of Jimmie Howard, Tom Cue, Travis Quesenberry and Larry Bartyczak placed first. Howard also finished first in the Men’s Closest to the Pin competition. Greg Ellis won the Longest Drive award.

Laura McKinnon finished first in the Women’s Closest to the Pin contest, and the Women’s Longest Drive competition.

Tournament sponsors were Community Bank of The Chesapeake, SimVentions, Roma’s Pizza, King George Farm Bureau, and URS.

Overall, there were 39 hole sponsors, 23 prize sponsors and five lunch sponsors for the event.

The tournament also featured a silent auction with the following items up for bid: NSWC Credit Union gift basket, Advanced Auto gift bucket, Starbucks package of coffee, Southern Maryland Blue Crabs baseball tickets, and an autographed football from Chicago Bear offensive lineman, and King George High School alumni, Jermon Bushrod.

Since 2007, Berry has bravely battled brain cancer. He doesn’t let the disease get him down. He continues to help his father in the press box with scoreboard duties during Fox baseball games.  

Two years ago, Berry inspired people from across the nation, as he received 3,000 birthday greetings, covering all 50 states for his 17th birthday. Berry is truly an inspiration for all of us.
