Hitting the greens to fight cancer: K-State Cancer Research Center annual Regier Golf Tournament Oct. 7
Golfers can help Kansas State University's fight against cancer at the 14th annual Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament, Friday, Oct. 7. 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, with registration starting at 11 a.m. Dinner and prize announcements will immediately follow the tournament.
Preregistration is requested by Friday, Sept. 16, but late and same-day registration will be accepted.
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 and a souvenir item. Prizes will be awarded to top teams, hole contest winners and more.
Arrangements have been made for out-of-town participants wanting to go to the next day's K-State football game against the University of Missouri. Hotel rooms and game tickets are available by calling the center at 785-532-6705.
The tournament's premier sponsor is Grand Mere Development, Manhattan. Additional sponsors are welcome, and all sponsors receive special recognition.
