25th Annual Wes Berner Homecoming Classic Fundraiser

Wes Berner served as both the first soccer and golf coach for Stetson University. In 1973, Berner lost his battle with cancer at age 52. The Wes Berner Homecoming Classic Fundraiser was founded in 1990 to honor him and the legacy he left in Stetson Athletics. Proceeds collected from this fundraiser will be used to benefit the 18 Hatter sports programs. Registration will include a continental breakfast and lunch for participants, as well as other gifts and prizes. If you can’t make it for the entire golf tournament, you may also register to be a guest at our luncheon celebration. We look forward to a day filled with fun, food, and fellowship, as we honor Coach Berner and celebrate a very special Hatter Homecoming!
