Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2016
MANHATTAN — Don't just be tee'd off at cancer. Tee up to fight it.
Golfers can help Kansas State University fight cancer at the 19th annual Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament Friday, Oct. 7. Proceeds will support the university's Johnson Cancer Research Center.
The tournament honors Rob Regier, a 1988 graduate of Kansas State University in pre-dentistry who died of cancer at age 26. It is hosted by his parents, Les and Sandy Regier, and his brother and sister-in-law, Randy and Juli Regier, all of Overland Park. The Regiers have raised more than $270,000 for the university’s cancer research and education programs.
The four-person scramble will be at Colbert Hills Golf Course in Manhattan, with registration opening at 11 a.m. and a shotgun start at 1 p.m. A steak dinner and prize disbursements will take place in Colbert's restaurant immediately following the tournament. Prizes will be awarded to top teams, hole contest winners and more.
Preregistration is requested by Friday, Sept. 16, but late and same-day registration will be accepted. The registration fee of $150 includes dinner and a souvenir item, and the tax-deductible portion is $42.
The tournament's premier sponsor is Grand Mère Development, Manhattan. Additional sponsors are welcome, and all sponsors receive special recognition.
More information about participating as a player or sponsor is available at cancer.k-state.edu or by calling the Johnson Cancer Research Center at 785-532-6705.
The Johnson Cancer Research Center supports and advances Kansas State University cancer research and education. Its programs are made possible by private donations.
