K-STATE CANCER RESEARCH CENTER'S ANNUAL REGIER GOLF TOURNAMENT SEPT. 3
MANHATTAN -- Golfers can help Kansas State University's fight against cancer at the 13th annual Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament Friday, Sept. 3. Proceeds will support K-State's Terry C. Johnson Center for Basic Cancer Research.
The four-person scramble, at K-State's Colbert Hills Golf Course in Manhattan, will have a shotgun start at noon. Registration is requested by Monday, Aug. 16, but same-day registration will be accepted at 11 a.m.
The tournament honors Rob Regier, a 1988 graduate of K-State in pre-dentistry who died of cancer at age 26. Regier's parents, Sandy and Les Regier, and his brother and sister-in-law, Randy and Juli Regier, all of Overland Park, are the tournament's hosts.
The registration fee of $150 per person includes dinner. Prizes will be awarded to top teams, hole contest winners and more.
Arrangements have been made for out-of-town participants wanting to stay for the next day's K-State vs. UCLA football game. Hotel rooms and game tickets are available by calling the center at 785-532-6705; reservations are requested by Wednesday, Aug. 4.
The tournament's premier sponsor is Grand Mere Development, Manhattan. Additional sponsors are welcome, and all sponsors receive special recognition.
