Highland OB/GYN has been part of the Fayetteville community for more than 60 years. They pride themselves on excellence in the obstetrician and gynecologist fi eld and have a staff of stellar physicians, midwives and nurses.

Dr. David Schutzer, MD, FACOG, has led Highland OB/GYN since 1997 when he fi nished training at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Schutzer has also served as Chief of Department of OB/GYN and Chief of Staff at Cape Fear Valley Health System.

A recent addition to the practice is Kelly Saunders, a certifi ed midwife. Saunders graduated from The Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing. She brings to the practice more than 10 years of experience providing care to women during various stages of pregnancy.

Back by popular demand is Ladies Night! Four years in a row, the Fayetteville FireAntz have partnered with Highland OB/GYN for Ladies Night with the purpose of raising funds and bringing the spotlight to local agencies that provide medical care or services to women in the Cumberland County area. The highlight of this year’s Ladies Night, which is Friday, Jan. 20, includes an opportunity to be part of Paint the Rink Pink.

Fans are asked to wear pink in support of the Breast Cancer Center of Cape Fear Valley. Hats, T-Shirts, jerseys and more … we are hoping for pink galore. Power comes in numbers and what a statement 3,000 plus fans creating a rink full of pink will make toward support of the Breast Cancer Center of Cape Fear Valley.

Don’t have pink? The FireAntz organization will have on sale white and pink t-shirts at the event. All proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Care Center. Players turn the ice pink with special pink jerseys, which will be auctioned after the game. Special ticket prices are also available to include $3 tickets, 30 tickets for $90 (10 for Jan. 20 and 20 for February 22.)

Can’t join the festivities on Jan. 20? There is plenty more action to take advantage of this weekend. On Sunday, Jan. 22, the Fayetteville FireAntz will once again play host to the Mississippi Surge. Game time is 4 p.m.

Additional specialty nights include Military Appreciation Night, Cram the Crown Public Safety Night and Systel FAPS Pet Adoption Night. Director of Game Day Operations, Richard Edge, shares “It is an honor to have an opportunity to put the spotlight on organizations that do so much good for our community!”

Gather your friends and family to come out and enjoy Fayetteville FireAntz Hockey where fire and ice unite! We will sell you the seat, but you will only need the edge.
