WILMINGTON, NC (March 22, 2018) - EmergeOrtho has re-committed their support to the Wilmington Hammerheads Youth FC.  EmergeOrtho, who serves as the Official Sports Medicine Physicians for the Wilmington Hammerheads Youth program, will also continue as the presenting sponsor at our 4th Annual WHYFC Spring Player’s Luncheon.  

EmergeOrtho, formerly OrthoWilmington, offers patients a range of orthopedic services, specialties and technologies unmatched in Wilmington, North Carolina and the surrounding region. Our patients benefit from this exceptional level of orthopedic care, delivered in a convenient, efficient and cost-effective manner.

The Player’s Luncheon, scheduled for Thursday, April 5th, at the Cape Fear Country Club is the club’s largest fundraising event.  It is focused on raising funds for scholarships awarded to young players and their families who need this support in order to participate in WHYFC programming.

“We are committed to raising enough funds and giving out enough scholarship aid to ensure that no young player is unable to participate in our programming because of finances,” said WHYFC Executive Director, Carson Porter.  "EmergeOrtho’s support of this key fundraising event as well as their support throughout the year is a big step in helping us make good on this promise."  

EmergeOrtho has been the presenting sponsor of the Spring Player’s Luncheon since its beginning in 2015.  

“WHYFC, and I personally, feel very connected to EmergeOrtho.  They are the first group we call when any of our players have any kind of issue, and having their support gives us a sense of safety that a youth sports club of our size needs."
