Event to be held June 22-28 in Bridgeport

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Golf enthusiasts will have the opportunity to support two West Virginia University Hospitals organizations while catching the action of the PGA Tour.

Tickets Fore Charity can be purchased for the Nationwide Tour Players Cup, which will be held June 22 through 28 at the Pete Dye Golf Club in Bridgeport. Proceeds from the ticket sale go toward the charity of the purchaser’s choice.

To participate, buyers log onto www.playerscup.net and select WVU Children’s Hospital or Rosenbaum Family House from the list of West Virginia nonprofit organizations to benefit from the purchase. Tickets can also be ordered by phone at 304-848-2027 or by fax at 304-842-4323.

Each organization selling tickets also participates in the $25,000 Bonus Pool. The pool is divided among the benefitting organizations based on each one’s percentage of total ticket revenue from the Tickets Fore Charity Program.

For $25, buyers can purchase a Grounds Pass, which permits access to the tournament grounds all week. For $50, a Clubhouse Pass is available and permits weeklong access to the tournament grounds as well as the Pete Dye Golf Club’s clubhouse dining area shared by the players, their families and sponsors.
